Dr. Suzanne Ducate
Specializes in Psychiatry
Interferes with life: If you are prone to alcohol abuse you will use alcohol despite knowing that there are negative consequences, if you want to drink less but feel that you can't, if you feel guilty for drinking too much, if you drink in the morning to treat hangover symptoms, if you spend more time and money obtaining and using alcohol than doing necessary daily tasks, and if alcohol interferes with work or family.
