Alcoholism – Physical or Mental Disease?

April 6th, 2007 · No Comments

According to Joan Mathews Larson, Ph.D., author of Seven Weeks To Sobriety, alcoholism is not just a psychological disorder or a sign of emotional weakness or flawed character that can be resolved with talk therapy but a physical disease.

Alcoholism is a physical disease, rooted in the genes and activated by the effect of alcohol on the biochemistry of the brain and body.  An enormous number of well-controlled scientific studies by distinguished researchers the world over has shown that alcohol undermines physical health and mental stability by destroying the vital nutrients responsible for their maintenance.  Additional studies have shown that alcoholism can be conquered by undoing this damage.

More details on what can be done coming up soon.
