Alcoholism, Family and Social Work Practice

By C.P. Singh

Alcoholism is not only the problem of individual health, but it also poses a serious threat to the individual's family, as well as the general society. In India's fast changing modern society, a large number of families are affected by alcohol abuse, resulting in an increase in divorce, family breakup, child neglect and abuse, financial crises, and other family problems. This book evaluates the realities regarding alcoholism's effects on individuals and family members in India. It analyzes the problem of alcohol abuse based on an exhaustive study of 800 families in the state of Haryana in North India. It looks at contemporary treatment and the strategies to overcome/minimize the problem. Family intervention solutions are suggested with the help of professional social work.
