Many adults struggle with alcohol. However, you do not have to have an alcohol use disorder to feel that your relationship with alcohol might need to change. 


Decades of studies have found that even moderate amounts of alcohol consumed regularly over time can affect your health. Regular alcohol use increases risk for liver disease and cancer. Alcohol also increases risk for problems with family, friends, and work, and it can lead to risky behaviors such as drinking and driving.


If you or another adult struggle with alcohol, we recommend talking with your doctor. Your doctor is trained to help you with behavioral counseling or medication, and he or she will know which options are available in your area and will work with your insurance.
