Intoxication & Incapacitation

"Alcoholic" means a person who habitually lacks self-control with respect to the use of alcoholic beverages or who uses alcoholic beverages to the extent that his health is substantially impaired or endangered or his social or economic functions are substantially disrupted. Link

Arizona defines an intoxicated person as someone whose mental or physical functioning is substantially impaired by the immediate effects of alcohol. A person incapacitated by alcohol is unconscious, or whose judgment is so impaired that the individual is unable to make a decision regarding the need for evaluation or treatment, unable to take care of basic needs or safety, or lacks the ability to make or communicate personal rational decisions. Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 36-2021
