According to NESARC (the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions), 8.5 percent of adults in the United States met the criteria for alcohol use disorder.

Children of alcoholics are 50 to 60 percent more likely to develop alcohol use disorders than people in the general population.
