Alcohol can form an addiction regardless of the type of alcohol consumed. At Passages Ventura, we often treat and heal individuals who are abusing wine, liquor, and/or beer. Beer has numerous negative effects on the liver, brain, heart, and other vital organs, and ongoing, excessive beer drinking will eventually lead to an increase in tolerance and chemical dependency.
If you are drinking one or two beers occasionally with dinner and among friends, you are most likely a social drinker with a healthy relationship with alcohol. However, if you find yourself needing beer as a way of ‘self-medicating’ against the stresses and strains of daily life, or if you are drinking alone, to the point of blacking out, in large quantities over long periods of time, and feel as though you cannot function without a beer, you may have a beer addiction.
People sometimes assume that drinking wine or beer is not as dangerous as drinking hard alcohol, but this is just plain wrong. Alcohol has the same chemical, physiological and psychological effects regardless of whether it is in the form of wines, spirits or beers. If you are struggling with an addiction to beer or feel as though you have become dependent on drinking beer, Passages can help.
