Alcoholism afflicts individuals of all social groups and age levels, although young adults have the greatest risk for addiction to alcohol. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than 51 percent of Americans—more than 125 million people over 12 years of age—reported being current drinkers in 2007. That same year, an estimated 1.3 million people received treatment for the use of alcohol, and another 1.4 million received treatment for using both alcohol and illegal drugs, while roughly 19.3 million others who needed treatment did not receive it. The Encyclopedia of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse examines the history of alcohol and alcoholism, providing detailed information about alcohol abuse and dependence. It explains the process by which alcohol dependence emerges, contributing factors, how to recognize alcohol dependence, what treatments are available, and the health impact if it is left untreated. Topics covered include the environmental and genetic factors for alcoholism, psychiatric illnesses associated with it, and the various social issues connected to alcohol use, ranging from lost work days to domestic violence. Appendixes include directories of national agencies and organizations, state agencies and organizations, child protective service agencies, mental health agencies, and statistics on alcohol use and abuse. Topics include: Adolescents and drinking Alcohol and the elderly Alcohol-related child neglect and abuse Alcohol-use disorders Driving while intoxicated Effects of alcohol and alcohol use in men and women Emergency treatment Families and alcohol Pregnancy and alcohol Psychiatric disorders Smoking and alcohol Underage drinking.
