Types of Alcoholism
There are five kinds of alcoholism. It’s important to recognize if you or a loved one falls into one of these categories. Our well-educated, experienced professionals at Dana Point Rehab Campus can help you overcome this debilitating dependence on alcohol no matter what type applies to you.
Below is a brief description of each of the five types of alcoholism:
Young adult sub-type
This type of addiction affects young adult drinkers who don’t have family histories of alcoholism or co-occurring mental illnesses. Many of these individuals deny that it is an issue. Instead, they merely define it as a lifestyle choice that’s appropriate for their age group. Many even say, “What’s the harm in having a good time?”
Young antisocial sub-type
This type of alcoholism also includes young adult drinkers. These people do have a family history of alcoholism, and they also have co-occurring mental illnesses or other substance addictions. This type of alcoholic can be difficult to treat due to the issues created by antisocial personality disorder. However, the disorder may be more quickly identified by loved ones because it begins at an earlier age than other types of alcoholism and a family history of abuse exists.
This type usually affects middle-aged and successful people who have a stable job and a supportive family. Most often trend of alcoholism runs in the family, and it also is co-occurring with depression. Many alcoholics with this type of alcoholism often evade treatment for years. To most of their friends and family, they seem to have an “acceptable” relationship with alcohol, manage to maintain employment and take care of their families. Just because they are not falling-down drunks doesn’t mean they are not alcoholics.
Intermediate familial sub-type
This unhealthy relationship with alcohol is most often characterized by middle-aged people with a family history of alcoholism and have been through a significant depressive episode.
Chronic severe sub-type
With this type of alcoholism, people of any age with family histories of alcoholism, a history of mental illness, and addictions to other substances can be affected.
