Psychological signs are poor coordination, slurred speech, imbalanced posture, shyness, red eyes, alcohol odor among others (Aspen Education Group, par 4-5).
Important to observe is that due to alcohol abuse; road accidents, murder cases and suicide incidences remain the top three causes of death for teenagers aged between15 and 24 years accounting for over 5,000 annual deaths (Aspen Education Group, par 4-5).
One of the main warning signs is the physical changes in a person as evidenced by general frequent health complaints, fatigue, poor memory and low immunity. The emotional signs on the other hand include changes in mood, anger, resentment, imperfect judgments, misbehaving, mistrust, reduced confidence, dejection, wrong prioritization of personal matters and indifference (Aspen Education Group, par 4-5)..
In conclusion, the alcoholism management and dependence recovery strategy serves as a key intervention. It has services such as counseling, treatment, forums, behavior change and trainings on life skills at both cluster and personal level being offered in a peaceful environment. This makes physical, emotional and even moral recuperation easier (Intervention Today, par 3).
