Alcohol Abuse Greenville TX

Alcohol abuse may start innocently enough. Letting off steam on the weekends, sporting events where you tie on a few too many, grabbing a buddy to hit the bar scene after a break-up. No one intentionally sets out to engage in alcohol abuse or set the stage for alcoholism, but all too often that’s exactly what happens.

Someone can abuse alcohol and not be an alcoholic. The difference lies in the genetic make-up of each individual.
