The Social Impact of Alcoholism

the-social-impact-of-alcoholism

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, men are more likely to suffer from alcoholism than women. In 2019, the year before the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of alcoholic men was higher than women by 7%!

A drink or two every once in a while is not bad, as drinking sometimes is a social activity. It only becomes a problem, however, if alcohol consumption starts to have a disruptive effect on your life, and the people around you.

Rarely does an alcoholic drink that his binge drinking is having an effect on his life, but if you notice signs, we invite you to come and join our fatherhood program in New York!

How can alcohol negatively affect one’s life and relationships with those around him? Here are some of those detrimental results in brief:

  • Alcoholics can end up neglecting personal and professional responsibilities.
  • Alcoholism can affect the family’s budget. Much of the money could go to alcohol instead of essentials as well as bills.
  • Alcoholics tend to operate on a short fuse – they easily get angry and get into fights.

In addition, alcoholics could lose some of their friends because of their toxic behavior. This, unfortunately, can lead to depression, which further worsens substance abuse.

When one joins fatherhood training, they can receive counseling that can help them come to terms with intrapersonal and interpersonal problems that could have led to their alcoholism. They can also receive training on occupational therapy, and how they can function more positively in society.
