This case study follows a patient undergoing in-patient detoxification for alcohol. Her progress is typical ... that is not straightforward! We see the highlights of the assessment and hear of the long term problems that she has experienced.
She describes her time in the clinic and immediately after discharge. She returns, having started drinking again for a further admission and discusses why things went wrong. There is a follow up interview recorded about two years later. The result is impressive.
On the DVD extras menu is an interview with a senior Consultant Psychiatrist (Dr M Atkins) who discusses a number of the medical aspects of addiction. There is also a discussion with nursing staff about the day-to-day problems commonly found in looking after such patients.
Main programme: 18 minutes, Follow Up: 5 minutes.
