Every two weeks, Monday from 5.30 to 7.30 p.m.: information meeting on alcoholism for the families of hospitalised patients
It brings together the next of kin (family, friends) of patients currently (or recently) hospitalised for an alcohol-related problem.
Objectives of the information meetings:
- To help the patient’s family to understand alcoholism and mechanisms of dependence
- To explain the various types of recovery, from withdrawal at the hospital to maintenance of long-term abstinence
- To help the family adopt the right attitude to the patient, both on a daily basis and in the event of a false step or relapse
- To answer any questions families may ask themselves on their role in the disease and recovery
