Alcohol Use Disorder

According to a study done by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health in 2020, 28.3 million people age 12 or older had a past year alcohol use disorder.

What is Alcohol Use Disorder?

Alcohol use disorders, or AUDs, include a spectrum of disorders surrounding the unhealthy use of alcohol. This includes alcoholism, alcohol dependency, binge drinking, and alcohol abuse disorder. Alcohol use disorders are often characterized by drinking that interferes with work, relationships, physical health, and/or social activities where the behavior continues despite negative consequences and attempts to stop. Psychological and physical dependency are defining features.

Symptoms of AUD

  • Unable to drink within safe limits or cut down on drinking
  • Diverting resources from work or social life to maintain the costs of drinking
  • Significant amounts of time are spent either drunk or recovering from drinking
  • Continuing to drink even when it becomes obvious that it is ruining relationships and causing problems at work or home
  • Repeated DUIs and recklessly driving under the influence

Causes of AUD

  • Parental history of alcoholism or AUD
  • Chronic pain or health conditions
  • Peer pressure
  • Socio-economic status
  • Inability to cope with stress
  • History of trauma, abuse, or neglect
  • Active social life that leads to dependency
  • Mental health conditions, such as anxiety

Treatment Options

Ketamine Therapy for Alcohol Use Disorder

Many of the treatments available for alcoholism and AUD have limited effectiveness, resulting in what can be a vicious cycle of sobriety and relapses for those who suffer from this disorder. With an ever-increasing need for a better way to help alcohol use disorder sufferers, it appears that researchers have found one in using ketamine in the treatment of alcoholism. Ketamine works by reducing associated cravings and symptoms. 

MDMA Therapy (Available 2024)

3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) therapy is an upcoming, highly effective and innovative treatment approach for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health conditions. It combines the psychoactive compound MDMA with guided psychological support, and has shown as much as a 75% success rate in patients suffering from PTSD, setting an unprecedented standard for treatment. MDMA therapy is not currently available, but expected to gain FDA approval later this year.a
