How often is too often? How much is too much?
There is a fine line between the two, but there is a big difference between casual drinking and alcoholism. While drinking alcohol is often considered a fun social activity, it can be so much more to some people. Because alcohol is an addictive substance, it is important that you are aware of the warning signs of alcoholism so that you can get help with our holistic addiction treatment in South Florida.

While it may be easy to make excuses about your drinking habits, it is time to face the truth. Are you addicted to alcohol? Do you suspect that your loved one is a high-functioning alcoholic? At Seaside Palm Beach, we want you to know the signs of alcoholism so that you can get help. Our luxury rehab in Florida has compiled a list of scenarios of people who have taken drinking too far.
