Substance abuse treatment centers are becoming increasingly concerned with the number of older Americans addicted to alcohol. This video discusses the issue of senior alcohol abuse.
The concentration of seniors who abuse alcohol may be caused by several factors. First, many seniors were also dependent on alcohol during their younger adulthood. Some older Americans may abuse beer or spirits because of physical ailments that alcohol consumption seems to alleviate. Others might consume alcohol in excess because of an emotional relationship to liquor or beer.
