Alcoholism Is Not Funny
The entertainment industry may treat alcoholism lightly, as though it was some sort of joke, but it’s not. Alcoholism is a very serious condition that can literally destroy an individual and his or her family in a very short amount of time. Alcoholism usually:
- wrecks marriages
- alienates children
- destroys finances
- ruins health.
All of these things are bad enough on their own. However, there can be additional consequences; things like the loss of a job, physical and verbal abuse, and any number of accidents resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. Alcoholism is not something anyone should be laughing about.
Help Is Available
Despite the destructive nature of alcohol dependence, there is help available through outpatient and residential programs. An outpatient program is one offered by an NHS facility or alcohol charity. These programs require the alcoholic to visit for several hours at a time before returning home. They are obviously limited in their effectiveness.
Residential programs take a much more thorough and comprehensive approach. They involve the alcoholic living at the facility throughout the duration of the program. For 6 to 12 weeks, the alcoholic goes through a number of different therapies to help him or her break their addiction and eventually live an alcohol-free life.
