Alcohol abuse vs alcoholism

Alcohol abuser
Drinks to get drunk. Drinks in social situations, often to excess; externally driven by peer pressure or circumstance; usually has periods of sobriety between binges or parties.
Drinks to prevent withdrawal, to become ‘normal,’ and then gets drunk; drinks whether or not the situation calls for it and may seek out permissible circumstances, but will drink in any case; may have some sobriety but at great difficulty.

In the state of Arizona, the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) automatically suspends a person’s driver’s license for a minimum of 90 days regardless of whether the person is found guilty or not guilty of DUI. A person can however, obtain a restricted driver’s license to legally drive to and from work, school, or treatment provided that the person obtain an alcohol screening by a licensed agency prior to the initial hearing.
