    I believe alcoholism is a mental health disorder that needs to be taken seriously in treatment ,many times alcoholics are not seen as sick people who need treatment and instead labeled with so many unwarranted names.

    Alcoholism is classified as a disease just like any other disease,it has a cause, it progresses, it has prognosis and is treatable /manageable. I do feel that every hospital facility should have a professional who can handle issues of alcoholism .
