In this study we investigated treatment programs at hospitals specializing alcoholism therapy and verified the relationships between these programs and improvements in alcoholics' resilience. First, using previous studies on alcoholism and resilience, we investigated the considerations of recovery from alcoholism on the basis of the concept of resilience. The actual conditions of hospitals specializing in alcoholism therapy were then investigated to determine the effects of these programs on alcoholics' resilience. These results revealed that the main treatment programs of these hospitals had the following objectives: (1) knowledge of one's true self; (2) increased understanding of alcoholism and the development of coping skills; (3) establishment of interpersonal relationships; and (4) contemplationabout way of life in the future (continuing recovery). These four objectives overlapped with the components of resilience, which indicated the ability of alcoholics to overcome their illness and return to a healthy status. These findings indicate that the treatment programs at hospitals specializing in alcoholism therapy provide support that promotes these patients' resilience.
