Searches for Alcoholism - Academic Research or Calls for Help?

From these results, can one assume that alcohol abuse is compounded by drug abuse/addiction in many cases, thus the “drug/alcohol” inquiries? Or simply that the global concept of “drug and alcohol abuse” will turn up better results? A review of the graphs provides further insight.

The fact that the terms “national”, “institute”, “statistics”, “journal”, “videos”, etc. rank high in the results, might lead one to believe that people looking for information on alcoholism are conducting general research. However, the prevalence of words such as “treatment”, “center”, “rehab”, “centers”, and “long term” seem to point to personal inquiries. The results are inconclusive, but interesting to ponder.
