Thinking about your drinking? EAP can help

April is Alcohol Awareness Month.  According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, alcohol is the most commonly used addictive substance in the United States.  Long-term alcohol abuse can lead to the development of chronic diseases and neurological impairments. Social issues related to alcohol dependence can include isolation, family tension or have a negative impact your workplace productivity.

Alcoholism has little to do with the type of alcohol one drinks, how long someone has been drinking or even exactly how much alcohol one consumes at a given time. It has more to do with a person’s uncontrolled “need” for alcohol and the impact it has on one’s life. If you find yourself craving alcohol, or living for that moment, it might be time to get help. Individuals struggling with alcohol are encouraged to seek professional assistance. Professional support allows you to benefit from the knowledge of individuals trained to deal with the physical and emotional effects of alcohol abuse.

Fortunately, no matter how severe the problem may seem, most people who suffer from chemical dependence can benefit from some form of treatment. With help, many people are able to stop drinking and reclaim their lives. Civilian employees of the U.S. Army Garrison at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield are welcome to contact the Employee Assistance Program manager as they explore a start to the recovery process.  

The Fort Stewart EAP program is available to provide short-term screening, intervention, and individualized referrals.  There is no cost to utilize EAP services.  If you are concerned about your drinking, call 912 767-5672 and make your appointment today.
