    Can any body tell me about the treatment for alcoholism?

    Can any body tell me about the treatment for an alcoholic which can be given to him without his knowledge so that he can quit drinking?

    There is nothing you can do (or should do) without his knowledge that will help him quit drinking.  It takes dedication and support to quit a habit.  There is a medication that someone can take that makes them sick when they drink but I forgot the name of it.  "Anti" something or other. 

    The only thing I can suggest is to look for other treatment options and suggest them to him, be there to support him, and understand how lucky he is to have people that care such as yourself.

      Thanks for comment nmdonders,
      Yes dedication is the only key to sort out this problem but it should be from both sides,  alcoholic and family and you know alcoholics never cooperate. This is the only problem.

    it's called a kick in the brain. i don't mean literally but rather they need something to happen that will make their brain finally wake up and see how foolish drinking all the time is.

      Thanks nightwork You are right. I have seen so many cases like this and so many treatments including family counseling but nothing works at all without patient's will.

    Alcoholism is a serious health problem that requires pharmacological and psychological  support. It should come from both family and healthcare professionals.

    That being said, pharmacological treatment of alcohol dependence is aimed at the management of withdrawal symptoms, the most dangerous, and life threatening being delirium tremens. Several drugs are used, namely benzodiazepines (diazepam is a first line drug in this class), disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone.
    Since disulfiram provokes a violent toxic reaction by inhibiting alcohol metabolism, it must be administered voluntarily.

    So, pharmacological treatment is aimed not only at ceasing consumption, but also at the prevention of serious side effects resulting from withdrawal.

    Stay tuned, this will be the topic of my first hub!

      Thanks Pedro for your valuable suggestion but you know we have tried all this including rehabilitation centers but nothing worked if you could tell me much more, I would be glad.

    If you want him to get help, you can try a family mediation. Several family members talk to him in a group to discuss how his illness affects everyone. If he gives in to suggestion, he could go to AA or admit himself to a treatment facility. It can work if he is willing to listen and you do this out of love and avoid confrontation   Our family did this once for addiction. It worked.

      Thanks Brakel. Yes it is true that family counseling works a lot but not in all cases.  One of my friend is facing this situation because of her husband but she tried all her best  but nothing worked. Some addicts are very difficult to understand.
