There’s a difference between recreationally
using alcohol and abusing alcohol. Hi, I’m Virginia Intelisano, mental health therapist
registered intern with the state of Florida and I’m here to talk to you today about what
is drug and alcohol abuse. A person who abuses drugs or alcohol might find themselves continually
using the substance despite getting into legal or social situations. Legal problems such
as getting a DUI or getting into a car accident. Also as a drug and alcohol abuser it might
affect your work at home or at school. Your friends people who you get along with usually
might get into arguments with you. You could find yourself getting on to peoples nerves
or loosing close relationships because of your drug and alcohol abuse. If you think
you have a problem or this sounds like you please contact someone in your area to help
you with this. The first step is stating that you have a problem and becoming aware of it
and wanting to seek help. I’m Virginia Intelisano, if you have any questions, contact your local
mental health professional. Be safe and be sane because it is imperative. Thank you.
