Worried about your drinking or that of a mother, sister, daughter or friend? Are you a wife whose husband nags you about your drinking? Want to know if you have a problem or the one you are worried about has a problem? Take the test on our site.
Still worried? You are not alone. According to a recent survey done by our government’s SUBSTANCE ABUSE and MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES ADMINISTRATION (SAMHSA) 5.7 million women ages 18 and older were found to suffer from alcohol use disorder. This is a modest count because many alcoholics are in denial and manage to hide their drinking. It is not until they are in a car accident, have an unexpected fall, receive a doctor’s diagnosis of liver damage or have their neglected children put into foster care that these women are added to the statistics.
