PROBLEMS WITH ALCOHOL CAN TAKE A NUMBER OF FORMS
At The Edge, to determine whether your son is an alcoholic and needs help, we look to what extent drinking is negatively impacting your life, as well as whether you have developed a dependency on alcohol.
Alcohol abuse is when drinking harms your job, your relationships, or your health, but you continue to consume it. Dependence on alcohol occurs when your body begins to crave it, and you experience unpleasant physical responses when you try to stop drinking. In both cases, we can assist you in getting back on track.
Too much alcohol, too frequently, can put you at risk.
Experts say that 1 in 4 people who exceed the recommended daily limit of drinks can develop an alcohol use disorder. For men, that’s drinking more than 4 units in one day, or more than a total of 14 in a week.
There are a number of signs you can look to in determining if your drinking has become a problem.
- Once you start drinking, you find it difficult to stop until the night is over
- You are using alcohol to cope with a difficult event—like the death of a loved one, a breakup, or the loss of a job or personal opportunity
- You drink to deal with feelings of anxiety
- You experience physical symptoms like shaking, sweating, and an upset stomach, which go away if you have a drink
- You feel the urge to drink often during the day
- Your drinking gets you in trouble—with the law, or in your relationships
- You feel that your drinking is a problem for you
TEENAGE ALCOHOL ADDICTION
It is best to first talk to your GP about your drinking, so that they can help you assess whether you have developed some degree of dependency on alcohol.
If so, it is important to make lifestyle changes, as prolonged alcohol abuse can lead to serious health problems like depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, liver disease, certain cancers, and alcoholism.

Drug Addiction Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS ADDICTION?
Addiction is a disorder in which the brain’s reward circuits do not function properly. Up to 60% of addicts are likely to have inherited the disorder genetically (National Institute of Drug Abuse, 2010). In addition, the reward system can be damaged by overconsumption. Those affected by this disorder will continue to reinforce their dulled reward system with substances (drugs, alcohol) or processes (gambling, sex, food ) to increase feelings of pleasure – but only temporarily. Once this happens, people with a genetic susceptibility to this disorder will have knock-on effects or chemical cascades in other parts of the brain that affect things like judgement and impulse control. This is why ‘addicts’ or alcoholics cannot control their consumption. Addiction is a chronic disorder (American Society of Addiction Medicine, 2011), which means it lingers, and symptoms will return if it is not treated.
