What Are the Causes of Alcoholism?

Alcoholism is a complex disease that requires treatment at residential treatment facility. While an individual is undergoing alcoholism treatment, he or she can explore the underlying causes of the disease. It can be difficult to pinpoint why one person will develop a problem with alcohol while another person can drink socially without becoming addicted.

As you’ll learn when you watch this video, many people require alcoholism treatment because of a genetic predisposition to the disease. Not only does the disease tend to run in families, but growing up in a household in which alcohol abuse is present can set the stage for experimentation, followed by abuse and alcohol addiction. This is just one of the potential causes of alcoholism. Other risk factors include having a mental health disorder, low self-esteem, and chronic stress.
