Alcoholism

Approximately one in four children under 18 years old in the United States is exposed to alcohol abuse or alcohol dependence in the family. More than one-half of American adults have a family member who has or has had alcohol dependence. Of the 11.1 million victims of violent crime each year, almost one in four, or 2.7 million, report that the offender had been drinking prior to the crime.

Alcoholism is a disease that impacts every sector of our society, destroying families, jobs, and lives every day.

The ATTC Network is committed to increasing the field’s awareness and knowledge of the issues related to alcoholism.  The following is a comprehensive collection of resources and links related to alcoholism and alcohol abuse to assist professionals in the substance use disorder treatment and recovery services field. Included are facts and statistics; information about treating alcohol abuse and alcoholism, and links to resources in a variety of related areas such as special populations, policies, new research, and training and educational opportunities among others.
