Hey.. this kind of belief is serious and points to a bigger diagnosis. Have the patient evaluated by a psychiatrist . Dont go for ECT in this case unless absolutely indicated. First medicines should be tried.

Hello, it appears that he is having possibly Schizophrenia (if at he has stopped taking alcohol or any other substances for at least six months),  if so he needs regular medications , needs detailed evaluation please consult psychiatrist as soon as possible.
