Defining and Understanding AUD

 

The term "alcoholism" is no longer in use, per the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5th edition (DSM). The new diagnosis for individuals with an alcohol use disorder has been established: it's called 'Alcohol Use Disorder'. To be diagnosed this way one must meet specific criteria set forth by DSM-5 - which includes symptoms such as excessive drinking or engagement in risky behaviors while intoxicated.

When a mental health professional assesses someone for alcohol use, they must find that he or she meets at least two of the 11 criteria during any 12-month period. These grades will determine how severe your disorder is -- the more markers you've got in one category means higher level diagnosis!

Spectrum of Alcohol Use Disorder

Extreme Abuse to Addiction

 

Binge Drinking According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), binge drinking occurs when, in a period of two hours, an individual’s blood alcohol concentration reaches 0.08 g/dL.

Heavy Drinking Heavy drinking is when binge drinking occurs five or more days per month.

Alcohol Addiction A pattern of alcohol abuse which continues despite an individual’s awareness. It’s defined by compulsive drinking and an inability to stop alcohol consumption.

WebMD 11 criteria in the DSM-5

  1. Feeling powerless to control alcohol use

  2. Declining to engage in social activities or hobbies that used to be of interest

  3. Having a desire to stop or decrease drinking but being unable to do so

  4. Using alcohol in high-risk situations

  5. Devoting significant time and resources to drinking

  6. Developing a tolerance for alcohol

  7. Experiencing cravings for alcohol when not drinking

  8. Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not drinking (e.g., cravings, sweating, shaking, and nausea)

  9. Facing problems at work, home, or school 

  10. In reaction to the discomfort associated with withdrawal, having to drink to feel better

  11. Continuing to use alcohol even when it is leading to social, physical, relationship, and personal problems

Alcohol Abuse is Universal
It Doesn't Discriminate

Alcohol addiction and abuse can affect anyone regardless of  race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, religion/spirituality, nationality and socioeconomic status.

Construction & Laborers

 

Specifically, an estimated 1.83% (2.3 million workers) drink before work, 7.06% (8.9 million workers) drink during the workday, 1.68% (2.1 million workers) work under the influence of alcohol, and 9.23% (11.6 million workers) work with a hangover.

Doctors & Surgeons

 

Data show 12.9% of male physicians and 21.9% of female physicians abuse alcohol, much higher rates than the 6.2% of the overall U.S. population aged 18 years or older with an alcohol use disorder.

Family Members

 

Understanding the patterns and dynamics of an addiction can help you be better prepared when the time comes to deal with the consequences. An intervention is the perfect time to take the next step to help a loved one struggling with alcohol use.

Nurses & PAs

 

Nursing is a tough industry to work in, and there are many factors that put nurses at risk for developing problems with substance abuse and addiction. Nurses & PAs have added access, stress, and professional fatigue

Practicing law is stressful and requires constant public performance in trial or before clients. The hard work means drinking can be a comfort or a reward. Many lawyers also report being dissatisfied with their jobs, unhealthy, and depressed.
