Alcoholism is the addiction and excessive consumption of alcohol. It is a dual disease, in that is causes both mental and physical distress and symptoms. Alcoholism clinics are specifically tailored to provide a comprehensive care package for treatment. Withdrawal can cause a lot of problems and requires a combination of medication and therapy.
After standard undergraduate training, those who work as part of an alcohol dependence team include GP's registered with the Royal College of Physicians, or Psychiatrists registered with the Royal College of Psychiatrists, both specialising in the treatment of alcoholism and its related symptoms.
Alcoholism can cause mental, physical and social problems, including psychosis, liver disease, seizures, criminal offences, conflict and neglect.
Those who visit an alcoholism clinic require management and assistance with their addiction, withdrawal and resolution of alcohol dependency
