For many years, the term alcoholism has been used to describe ongoing alcohol abuse resulting in significant physical and/or psychological problems. Although laypeople still use this term to describe excessive alcohol use, alcoholism isn’t a formal diagnosis. Medical professionals use the terms alcohol use disorder and alcohol dependence when diagnosing people with problems related to their drinking.

This guide explains the physical and behavioral changes associated with heavy drinking, outlines some of the risk factors for alcohol use disorder and provides information on treatment options for problem drinking.
