Aug 17, 2007
The addiction to alcohol has become like a disease which is affecting the entire nation. The treatment requires co- ordination of many individuals and institutes. Who would have imagined that the experiment made by drinking alcohol will turn into a life destroying instrument.

Mode of Treatment

- When the addiction has not affected on a physical plane and is in the initial stage, an out patient treatment can be taken provided the patient does not revert to old habits. An individual approach should be considered even if the addict is enrolled in a rehabilitation centre. We forget our duty towards the patient after registering the person in the centre. The best results are achieved by continuous monitoring of patient.

- Depending on the severity of addiction the treatment plan should be laid down. The earlier initiation of treatment helps to prevent many of its complication like liver disease, gastric ulcers and heart problems. If the patient is having a drive to get rid of the habit the process is simplified and we can treat him at home. But according to some expert views the best result are obtained by confining the patient in a centre.

- The addiction is often an outcome of lot of interactive lapses in the relation of the patient with parents, spouse and friends. Hence counseling the family members to handle the patient with care should be our prime focus.

- Group therapy involves treatment of many individuals ailing with alcohol addiction. This works out for addicted people who like to share their problems with trained personnel and interactive groups.

- Some addicts may develop severe physical ailment requiring hospitalization. Under such circumstance go for rehabilitation institute which has indwelling hospital equipment.

- Since psychological impact is a major cause of alcohol addiction, seek help of psychiatrist. Many sessions are required depending on the response and resistance to treatment on the part of patient.

- The institutes like 'Alcoholic Anonymous' and 'My Way Out' are useful for alcohol addicts and can be tried for treatment.
