This article defines and describes the demographic characteristics and recent historical trends of alcohol use, alcohol abuse/dependence and other alcohol-related problems in the United States. It does this with facts and interesting graphs and tables which are easy to read and understand. The article goes on to identify the relationship between level of alcohol use and health effects. It addresses the health impact of alcohol use and abuse on pregnancy outcomes, interpersonal violence, homicide, and accidental death. The article ends with a review of the implications of using epidemiological data for the early intervention and prevention of alcohol problems, and for evaluating intervention impact.
 
This course on alcohol problems is useful for psychologists, social workers and professional counselors who practice and need substance abuse related continuing education. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of alcohol abuse and use in the United States.
