Which Injury Is Common In Patients With Chronic Alcoholism?

Chronic alcoholism is a major problem in the United States. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), more than 15 million adults suffer from alcohol use disorder (AUD).

AUD can lead to a number of serious health problems, including liver damage, heart disease, and cancer. It can also increase your risk of injuries.

One of the most common injuries in people with chronic alcoholism is head trauma. This is often the result of falls or car accidents. People with AUD are also more likely to suffer from other types of injuries, such as burns and drowning.

If you or someone you love suffers from chronic alcoholism, it’s important to get help. There are many treatment options available, and Recovery Options can help you find the right one for your needs.

According to a new study, patients with chronic alcoholism are more likely to suffer from a certain type of injury.

The study, which was conducted by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, looked at data from over 200,000 patients with chronic alcoholism.

They found that these patients were more likely to suffer from a type of injury known as an “alcohol-related injury.” This type of injury is typically caused by drinking too much alcohol, and can lead to serious health problems.

The study’s authors say that the findings highlight the need for better treatments for alcohol-related injuries. They also say that the findings could help to improve the way that hospitals and other medical facilities deal with patients with chronic alcoholism.
