Summary
"Alcoholism: The Facts was orginally written by the late Dr Donald W. Goodwin, who dedicated his career to the understanding and treatment of alcoholism. Now taken forward by his former colleagues, his engaging style shines through. The book treats alcoholism as an illness rather than a vice. It aims to be supportive and helpful, and does not preach nor look down upon its readers. It combines the latest research and proven evidence, with the advice of experienced doctors." "The book starts with an explanation of the effects of alcohol on the body and on behavior. It discusses the symptoms and possible causes of alcoholism, and explores the different treatments which are available and where to get support."--Jacket
