What Is Alcohol Misuse & Alcoholism?


Not many people realise how thin the line is between social drinking and what is considered alcohol misuse or alcohol abuse. If the signs and symptoms of alcohol misuse are ignored, the chance of developing alcoholism (alcohol dependency) is greatly increased.

Some common symptoms of alcohol misuse include:

  • Drinking more than you had planned to

  • Memory loss or blackouts from a night of drinking

  • Lying to others about the quantity of alcohol you drink

  • Drinking alcohol to relieve stress, to relax or to improve your mood.

  • Your friends and family may have commented on your drinking habits and are worried about you

  • Responsibilities and activities in your life (work, school, children) are neglected because of your drinking habits

  • Relationships in your life have become problematic and may have deteriorated as a result of your drinking habits.

Alcoholism has all of the same signs as alcohol misuse but it is more serious because of an actual physical dependency on alcohol.

Our Expertise On Alcohol Counselling


Psychological & counselling treatment can sometimes be an effective method to overcome the challenges of alcohol misuse and alcohol dependency. As alcoholism is a chronic condition, in which the temptation and addiction of alcohol is life-long, the focus on treatment is on helping the individual overcome these urges and not give in to their addiction.

Our experienced clinicians at Centric Mental Health will initially assess to ensure suitability for our service. Once deemed appropriate we work with the individual to help them to reduce their drinking or stop drinking completely depending on their individual goal of treatment. If any of the above sound familiar to you, don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how we can help you.
