Jensen Beach, FL ( September 28, 2011 - According to statistics compiled in 2009 by various government agencies and not-for-profit groups throughout the United States, the problem of alcoholism continues to grow at a rapid pace.

* There are over 22 million people in the United States who are currently living with a substance abuse problem or an addiction to drug or alcohol. Of those 22 million people, it is estimated that less than 10 percent will actually receive help for their addiction at a professional drug or rehab center.

* 14 million people in the United States are currently living with an active addiction to alcohol.

* Over 100,000 deaths are reported each year as a direct result of alcohol-related issues, including drunk driving accidents and liver failure.

* Liver disease due to alcoholism is the cause of over 13,000 deaths each year.

* In the past year (2009), 21 percent of all adults in the United States reported having at least five alcoholic drinks in one day at least once.

Having a complete understanding of these staggering statistics gives a chance to see how alcoholism affects the lives of people no matter what their age group, race, occupation or ethnic background. While the number of people actively participating in alcohol rehabilitation programs is largely disproportionate to the overall number of alcoholics living in the United States, rehabilitation is certainly possible through a variety of treatment programs at professional drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers.
