When people think about alcohol abuse, they typically picture teenagers drinking underage or have a mental picture of someone completely out of control. However, alcohol abuse is prevalent within many groups, ages, and social circumstances. Alcohol abuse occurs among college students, pregnant women, professionals, senior citizens, and is easily disguise in families.
