Most adults can have a social drink and relax. Most people can consciously choose if they will drink alcohol, when and how much.
An alcoholic or addict is obsessed by alcohol and cannot limit or control consumption, although they know it causes them harm. They cannot control it.
Others can go days, weeks or even months without drinking, then just one drink and they cannot stop, they binge drink. They drink until they cannot drink anymore.
The problem drinking habit often starts in adolescence: almost half (40 per cent) of alcoholics develop their first symptoms between 15 and 19 years of age. Alcoholism is among the most common of psychiatric disorders in the general population: the lifestyle prevalence of alcohol dependence, the severe form of alcoholism is 8 to 14 per cent of the population.

‘Our while family is blown away by the treatment you gave Alan. He stated at the outset that he was going to have a couple of drinks on Christmas Day (also his brothers birthday) and on New Years Eve. He did this, keeping to just a couple, and hasnt had a drink at any other time. He says that even when he had those drinks, he didnt particularly enjoy them and didnt feel like continuing. He has occasions when he feels like having a beer, but when he goes to the fridge he changes his mind. The difference in Alan is amazing. He is happier, more confident and has goals fo losing weight, getting fit, saving money and is a joy to have around. We have been so worried over the past few years about Alans drinking, which was completely out of control. Apart from the very dangerous things he was doing, I kept getting embarrassing feedback from people that he became loud and obnoxious after a few drinks. We are so grateful to you. It was the best money weve ever spent! We (including Alan) have told many people about what you do. Hopefully youll get some more clients from our referrals. Many, many thanks, Heather.
