High Functioning Alcoholics
High-functioning alcoholics often hide in plain sight. From the outside, they may not seem to have a problem, but in reality, the relationship between the individual and alcohol is much more sinister than it appears. Despite the appearance of everything being OK, behind the scenes, alcoholism can tear apart families and ruin lives. Time is of the essence when it comes to seeking assistance. If you are living with a high-functioning alcoholic, don't wait to find the help you both need.

Denial is often the biggest hurdle for high-functioning alcoholics. Because they still go to work and carry on with a normal day, they don't feel like they really have a problem. But their bodies may tell a different story. The effects of alcoholism take their toll on the body. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, there are 25 different types of chronic diseases and conditions that can be a result of alcoholism.
