In an ideal world which it isn't and never will be, a holistic approach is desperately needed to assist and support the victims of alcohol abuse. I am a successful recovering alcoholic, (one day at a time) was once a manager/social worker so I know what im talking about. My own G.P. did not understand the complexities of this disease, neither did my family who went against me understandably so. The N.H.S. do not have the capacity to support people 24-7. This problem needs a multi disciplinary approach other wise this problem will continue to grow. So very sad.
