Alcohol Sobriety Programme

Information about Alcohol Sobriety Programme

The drinking of alcohol is said to promote friendship in some societies, but excessive intake of it has been associated with several deadly diseases; and is estimated to be responsible for millions of deaths every years. The ill effects of alcohol not only occurs with binge drinking of large quantity of alcohol that results in drunkenness, but also manifests as failing health, failing marriage, and falling financial status, as alcohol takes full control of the life of the person, a medical condition called alcohol dependence.

Persons with alcohol dependence problem can be identified by the following:

  • They are able to withstand large quantity of alcohol, and seem not to get drunk
  • They recognize that they have a problem, and feel the need to cut down on their drinking
  • They have been criticized for their heavy drinking, because they fail to do what was expected of them
  • They are sometimes unable to remember what happened the night before, because of their drinking
  • They feel guilty or bad about their drinking; and
  • They feel the need to drink as soon as they wake up, to steady their nerves or get rid of a hangover.

Despite the myriad of problems, persons with alcohol dependence problem find it difficult to quit drinking, because of the severe withdrawal symptoms that include hand tremors, inability to sleep, and the seeing of things that are not real. Success has however been achieved by many persons with structured alcohol sobriety programmes that use a combination of counselling, medication and detoxification, to assist the person to quit drinking.
