Does anyone know if alcoholism qualifies one for SSI?
But if one is debilitated from the ravages of alcoholism then one MIGHT be eligible.
However merely being an alcoholic isn't going to get you SSD.
Short-term memory may be a key to tendency toward alcoholism...
Different Patterns in Brain Activity Could Predict Alcoholism
August 12, 2012 - Scientists say they may someday be able to predict which adolescents will become alcoholics from certain patterns of activity in their brains. Researchers are focusing on areas of the brain associated with short-term memory, as well as the ability to plan and organize tasks.
No why? Are you wanting to apply if it does?
I'll drink to that.
When I was in college in 1980-81 we were allowed beer on campus and in our dorms.
Yes it does. Depending on the severity. I once had a young man (22 years old) who was getting SSI for alcoholism work for me occasionally. He did a good job when he worked but considered that his real job was being a government paid alcoholic. If he didn't get drunk his checks might stop.
Do you know how much he drank?
Check this out. According to this survey: My name is Chanel and I am an alcoholic.
Funny that this thread was bumped. Yesterday I had a conversation with a friend who said his neighbors (4 adults) are all alcoholics and on SSI. He doesn't know how much they are receiving, but they live in a really nice house. Homes in that development start at $350K. They do odd jobs in town and get paid under the table. I told him he should turn them in. But I doubt if anyone at SS really gives a damn.
and here i thought you actually wanted to discuss the issue of college students who binge drink.
