Drinking alcohol is popular in the United States and often glamorized in pop culture. This can influence perceptions and promote harmful drinking habits. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a chronic condition where individuals struggle to control their drinking despite adverse consequences. Identifying when moderate or social drinking becomes problem drinking can be challenging.

Do You Need Alcohol Rehab in Omaha? 

If you struggle with alcohol use disorder (AUD), you may feel isolated and lonely, but you are not alone. AUD impacts millions of Americans from all walks of life. According to a 2022 CDC survey on adult alcohol consumption, Nebraska ranks as the seventh-worst state in the nation for adult binge drinking, with Omaha ranked among the 15 worst cities in the survey.1  

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders, Fifth Edition (DMS-5), outlines 11 criteria for diagnosing AUD. It further classifies AUD into three severity levels based on the number of criteria met: 

  • Mild AUD (2-3 criteria) 
  • Moderate AUD (4-5 criteria) 
  • Severe AUD (6 or more criteria) 

At Northpoint Omaha, we understand that there are numerous barriers to seeking treatment for AUD, with shame or embarrassment being high on the list. We also know that the longer it takes to seek help, the worse AUD will become. No matter what level of AUD you or a loved one may be experiencing, we have a program to help.  

What Are the Signs of Alcohol Use Disorder? 

The following are the criteria used by the DSM-5 to diagnose AUD: 

  • Alcohol is often taken in more significant amounts or over a more extended period than intended 
  • There is a persistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control alcohol use 
  • A great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain alcohol, use alcohol, or recover from its effects 
  • Craving or a strong desire or urge to use alcohol 
  • Recurrent alcohol use failing to fulfill significant role obligations at work, school, or home 
  • Continued alcohol use despite having persistent or recurrent social or interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of alcohol 
  • Important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of alcohol use 
  • Recurrent alcohol use in situations in which it is physically hazardous  
  • Alcohol use is continued despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by alcohol 
  • Tolerance, as defined by either of the following: (a) a need for markedly increased amounts of alcohol to achieve intoxication or desired effect or (b) a markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of alcohol 
  • Withdrawal, as manifested by either of the following: (a) the characteristic withdrawal syndrome for alcohol or (b) alcohol is used to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms 

If you recognize these signs in yourself or a loved one, treatment can be lifesaving. An average of 720 annual deaths in Nebraska are caused by excessive alcohol use.2
