Doctor Answers (3) on Alcohol addiction
He needs to see a psychiatrist who specialises in deaddiction services too. Many patients taking substance are not motivated to leave the substance. We are adept at managing such patients. Even if he is not ready to leave alcohol by MET he may be motivated to do so. So instead of telling him to leave alcohol its important that he just consults the psychiatrist to start a therapy to increase his motivation to leave. It's important to respect his wishes and take him on board for any treatment. So a step by step approach is needed.
