Need Possible alcoholism treatment Tips!!!

A: Hello Jish, I apologize that this response is so late. I''ll provide some information in the hope that it will be useful to you and to others who may read your post. You are aware of the issue of alcoholism running in families. There can be genetic influence, and there can also be environmental influence through coping with styles of family pathology. You describe many difficulties within your family system, and you may not be fully aware of how the childhood abuse can seriously affect your current issue. A rehab program probably would be the best approach for you, if you are willing to do it. While you don''t feel that wine and beer are problems for you because you haven''t taken them to the point of drunkenness, they may in fact be substitutes and still a large...

What is the medical cure for alcoholism.......?

A: Whiskey. *Hiccup* Well try staying away from it. Like parties and don''t buy it! Also don''t go to a bar because it wont help you either. There is no "cure" for alcoholism. There are treatments. Antabuse was mentioned as one of them and there are some other medications on the market that are used to help curb cravings for alcohol but nothing that will ever cure the disease. To treat alcoholism (besides rehab) there are outpatient groups, psychiatrists that specialize in addictions, support groups other than AA (i.e. Moderation Management - but do know that founder of that particular movement did relapse and kill two people because she was driving while intoxicated.

What Is the Best treatment For Alcohol Addiction?

A: The best treatment for alcohol addiction is the one that works. Exactly what that is depends on each individual, and there are several treatments that may help end physical and emotional addiction to this powerful drug.

disparing wife and children of a alcoholic.

A: Good afternoon Lesley,and thank you for your question. I hope that my answer will in some way help you out of your situation.  What I have to say is also meant to apply to your children, where applicable. Yes, alcoholism can destroy the family unit, but (and it?s a big BUT) you have to understand that you are totally powerless over your husband?s drinking. You must stop trying to control something that you cannot control. If you chose, you and your teenage children can get help for yourselves by attending Al-Anon and Al-Ateen meetings. You may not be able to do anything about your husband?s drinking but you can do something about the problem that has developed in your lives by having an alcoholic in it. At Alanon and Al-Ateen meetings you will find out what...


Alcohol endangerment

A: Good afternoon ACJ: Thank you for your question. I will try to give you some information that will at least start you off in the right direction. Let me first say ?If drinking causes problems then? IT IS A PROBLEM!? The fact that you are that concerned about your husband"s drinking makes it a problem with your marriage. As you already know, by your class on alcoholism, it is very easy for those who are close to an alcoholic to become an ?enabler?. Never-the-less, you may need some reminding to determine if in your own way you are still enabling your husband"s alcoholism. Are you the kind of person who is enabling your husband by allowing him to continue drinking and not holding him responsible for all of his un-acceptable behavior?...
