(PRWEB) July 07, 2014

“Drinking alcoholic beverages is often seen as a way to relax, socialize or celebrate, but drinking too much or drinking as a way of dealing with feelings of anxiety or depression has negative consequences,” says Mind Your Health in the article recently featured by Western Washington Medical Group which addresses the issues surrounding the use and abuse of alcohol.

As alcoholism and alcohol-related accidents continue to occur each year, Western Washington Medical Group hopes to increase knowledge regarding the issues and dangers of excessive or habitual alcohol consumption.

Their insightful and candid article talks plainly about what constitutes a drink, how much can be safely consumed in a given space of time, the effects of alcohol, and the varying stages of alcohol abuse.

Alcohol dependence encompasses more than simply alcoholism, the article notes—binge drinking and heavy drinking, or drinking as a means to relieve anxiety or depression, are all signs of an unhealthy dependence on alcohol.

Their article concludes by providing a checklist of questions that will help people determine whether or not they may be drinking too much alcohol. If most of the questions provided are answered positively, they recommend that these individuals seek help through contacting their employer’s employee assistance program (EAP) or their primary care doctor.
