  • NIAAA’s Alcohol Treatment Navigator is a tool designed to help people recognize and find quality care for alcohol use disorders. The Navigator was developed to address the alcohol treatment gap and helps explain the steps to take in searching for an alcohol treatment provider anywhere in the U.S. It includes an overview of alcohol use disorders, a description of different kinds of treatment options, step-by-step instructions for searching several existing directories for treatment providers, 10 questions to ask and answers to listen for when interviewing a provider, five signs of quality care to looks for, and a downloadable toolkit to help organize and simplify the search process. With the Navigator, individual adults will be better able to find treatment options that meet their unique needs. Visit NIAAA’s Alcohol Treatment Navigator at:

  • Understanding Alcohol Use Disorder
    Understanding Alcohol Use Disorder Fact Sheet...

  • Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a medical condition characterized by an impaired ability to stop or control alcohol use despite adverse social, occupational, or health consequences. Lasting changes in the brain caused by alcohol misuse perpetuate AUD and make individuals vulnerable to relapse. The good news is that no matter how severe the problem may seem, evidence-based treatment with behavioral therapies, mutual-support groups, and/or medications can help people with AUD achieve and maintain recovery.
  • Using Alcohol to Relieve your Pain
    Using Alcohol to Relieve your Pain: What are the Risks?...

  • People have used alcohol to relieve pain since ancient times. Despite this, using alcohol to alleviate pain places people at risk for a number of harmful health consequences.
  • Parenting to Prevent Childhood Alcohol Use
    Parenting to Prevent Childhood Alcohol Use - Fact Sheet...

  • Drinking alcohol undoubtedly is a part of American culture, as are conversations between parents and children about its risks.  Alcohol’s differing effects and parents’ changing role in their children’s lives as they mature and seek greater independence can make talking about alcohol a challenge. Parents may have trouble setting concrete family policies for alcohol use. And they may find it difficult to communicate with children and adolescents about alcohol-related issues.
