This book offers supporting evidence for these staggering statistics and addresses the topics most important to you and your patients or clients. Alcohol Disabilities Primer is a leading-edge book that provides a comprehensive description of the debilitating consequences of alcohol use that either contribute to or cause physical, psychiatric, and psychosocial disabilities. This essential primer presents compelling evidence on how alcohol abuse is directly related to one-third of all deaths in the United States. It discusses how alcohol is the strongest predisposing element in traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. The book also explains why the consequences and complications of alcohol abuse are commonly treated, but the role of alcohol abuse as a contributing factor to many acute or chronic diseases is far too often overlooked. The issue of Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE) is addressed as well. Alcohol Disabilities Primer is an essential guide for alcohol and drug counselors, rehabilitation psychologists, Employee Assistance Program counselors, addiction researchers, family therapists, and students in drug and alcohol-related courses.
