What stage of alcoholism an alcoholic will begin to have an increased tolerance?
Alcoholism develops gradually, impacting the life of not only the alcoholic but their close family and friends. Fortunately, alcohol dependence is treatable and sobriety is an achievable goal. Mental health professionals and family doctors are frequently the initial contacts for an individual struggling with alcoholism. A complete assessment is necessary and then an appropriate treatment plan that provides structure, alternative coping methods and behavioral changes should be implemented to begin on the path to recovery.
