Low to moderate occasional consumption of alcohol usually does not cause substantial harm to one's health. However,
excessive, repetitive alcohol ingestion can lead to severe body and mental health damage. Alcohol is classified as a sedative substance, meaning that it temporarily inhibits the brain and induces a transient state of calm and relaxation, but also impairs normal speech and body coordination. However, alcohol can cause disinhibition and aggression in certain individuals, can alter normal sleep patterns, and cause anxiety and insomnia in the long run. Alcohol abuse may lead to significant changes in behavior and work productivity, which may result in problems at work and in the family, unless the individuals are not treated in a specialized rehab center.
Alcohol Abuse May Cause Dysfunction In Several Body Systems
The liver is the organ that attempts to remove alcohol from the bloodstream by neutralizing it. However, in heavy drinkers, the capacity of the liver to eliminate alcohol is progressively diminished. Moreover, people who abuse alcohol may exceed the capacity of the liver to neutralize alcohol, meaning that free-circulating alcohol can exert its toxic effects on the brain. Alcohol abuse can lead to malnutrition. There are two reasons for that. Alcohol causes damage to the pancreas, which produces digestive enzymes to facilitate the digestion and absorption of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Alcohol also directly slows down the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the gut. These two combined negative effects create enough conditions for a poor nutrition of brain cells, which further aggravates brain damage and mental effects. Because the brain becomes addicted to the "calming" properties of alcohol, alcoholics start experiencing withdrawal symptoms when alcohol is not available. They may include restlessness and agitation, anxiety, panic attacks, irritability and moodiness, poor mental concentration and low productivity. At the Raleigh House Of Hope, a specialized rehab center, highly skilled rehabilitation medical specialists can help reduce the impact of alcohol on one's health, efficiently manage withdrawal symptoms and cure alcohol addiction completely through a gentle and professional approach.
