We attempted to clarify the current treatment and support for alcoholism and related issues incommunities to examine how to create a society in which alcoholics can live comfortably. We found thatalcoholics struggled with strong denial, mistaken responses from their families, delayed counseling andmedical consultations, difficulty continuing to participate in self-help groups, various prejudices, a lack ofspecialist hospitals and staff, and difficulty sharing information. Measures to address these issues includedimproving the legal system, acknowledging the need for a budget, activities to raise awareness amongcommunity residents, building mechanisms to connect people, providing school education, establishingintermediate facilities, and improving team work in communities. In addition, we found that engaging intreatment and support for alcoholism allowed the supporters to experience personal growth. Thesefindings suggest that continued efforts by entire communities to address alcoholism allow people to findhope such that people will continue to nurture their strengths and entire communities will continue togrow.
