The addiction to alcohol constitutes a serious psychiatric disease with important pathological and psychological repercussions for the patient and needs special treatment and follow-up. It constitutes a disease that is based on the distortion of the logic and the critical faculty of the patient as well as on his sentimental isolation and alienation. The patient is unable to control his sentiments, rage, joy, sorrow and guilts. Professionals and relatives of the patient often hear him declare “of course I will stop it, it only brings me problems” just to observe after a few hours or days that the problem remains.

Those addicted to alcohol try to convince themselves and the others that they are not sick, inventing excuses such as “ I never drink at work”, “I never drink in my house,or in front of my children”, “I do not like the flavour of drink”, “I never drink with others”. Most patients maintain for a lot of years the conviction that they can control themselves and are imaginary appeased that at any moment and if they want to, they can stop drinking by themselves without accepting help.

The enjoyment of drink is exclusive, leaving the companion aside, as well as all the family. The family is found in a very difficult situation in her indisposition to react and to exceed the procrastination of the patient, and to convince him to ask for help.

In Lyrakou Clinic, the role that we undertake in regard to the treatment of the addicted from alcohol begins with the mobilisation of the patient in the framework of outpatient clinics as well as the psychological support of the patient in his decision to face the problem.
