The Minnesota Model.. The therapeutic program is based on the Minnesota Model.. The main principles of the Minnesota Model are:.. regarding alcoholism as a disease which is different from other disorders or psychical diseases,.. regarding alcoholism as a primary disease(it isn`t a sign of other disorders because after their solving alcoholism won`t stop existing, it doesn`t result from any other disease bacause it is a disease in itself),.. regarding alcoholism as a chronic disease, deadly disease and what is very important- a faultless disease which appeared just because of many different conditions,.. regarding addicts with respect and understanding and respecting their personal dignity,.. an opinion that initial motivation doesn`t decide about the process and results of a treatment,.. trying to achieve the identification with the symptoms which at the same time may help addicts to understand the need of changing their lives,.. agreeing that one of the most important symptoms of the disease is a denial but existing of the disease is also denied by the surroundings,.. putting life abstinence from any psychoactive substances as the long-term objectives,.. systematic treatment including active participation in the therapeutic program for relatives,.. leading therapies in small groups in which each patient is regarded individually because he has an individual way of recovering from the disease and has own ways of avoiding coming back to drinking as well as ways of preventing coming back to drinking,.. using the secret of multidisciplinary team of therapists in which trained specialists derived from alcoholics or drug-addicts who has recovered thanks to AA or DA programs play a very important roles,.. using the 12 Steps Program and AA philosophy as well as systematic participation of people in AA group meetings..

    Descriptive info: Library.. Alcohol.. Drugs.. Gambling.. Prophylaxis.. Family.. Others.. The development stages of alcoholism.. Introduction.. Those who reach for alcohol don`t do it in order to be ill.. They do it because they think that alcohol will give them something good and pleasant.. If it wasn`t like that they wouldn`t drink.. When we ask someone why he drinks alcohol we will be given the following answers: to reduce stress, to relax, to calm down, to fall asleep more easilly, to protect from depression (to reduce its symptoms), to be more courageous, to quench thirst (especially by beer), to have fun, to whet aphetite, to reduce pain (e.. toothache).. The list of reason is huge and we usually hear that alcohol helps and is treated as a cure for problems.. There are also people who drink because of cheerfulness, sadness or because they are afraid of being rejected by the group or to show revolt (against parents, authority etc.. ), to show friendship (brudershaft) etc.. The list is of course incomplete but it allows us to describe the most common reasons why people reach for alcohol.. Thus we can talk about different motivation factors, beginning from physiological (quenching thirst, whetting appetite, reducing pain), to psychological ( out of cheerfulness, anxiety, for calming down etc.. ), to sociological (ritual, imitations, yielding to the pressure, fear of being laughed at or rejected etc).. There are also people who drink in order to manipulate (others see I`m suffering so they will be nicer for me, aggressive behaviour will be more forgettable).. Alcohol abuse.. According to American Psychiatric Society (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - Fourth Edition, OSM-IV), alcohol abuse is defed as harmful model of using psychoactive substance (also alcohol), clinically damage of organism which manifests itself by appearing of one of the symptoms:.. repeating using of substances (drinking) resulting with problems with fulfilling duties at work or at school, (e.. absence at work, reducing effeeness, neglecting children or home, absence at school, suspension or throwing away).. Repeating usof alcohol (drinking)in situations which pose a physical threat (driving a car).. Repeating problems with law (e.. arresting for improper behaviour under the influence of alcohol or another psychoactive substance).. Alcohol abuse, despite social problems which are the effects of substance (family quarrels, physical violence).. At the same time a pressure is put on recognising the abuse.. Thus we have to be sure that the symptoms didn`t accompany another symptoms in the past meeting criteria of addiction to a substance.. WHO treats the problem of alcohol abuse slightly differently.. The experts suggest the need of withdrawal of this definition because it doesn`t describe the way of drinking or the amount.. Thus they suggest using the terms such as: "inefficiency connected with alcohol" or "problems connected with alcohol".. The last term has been used lately and it is connected with the effects of drinking alcohol (e.. social, economic, legal), and not only cases of limited physical condition.. Warning symptoms.. The following symptoms describe the development of addiction to alcohol:.. Reaching for alcohol because it brings relief, reduces stress and anxiety, reduces feelings of guilt, makes falling asleep easier.. Looking for, ating, organising possibilities for drinking, drinking out of need, repeating cases of getting drunk.. Drinking alcohol despite doctor`s prescription suggesting the essity to restrain from it.. The ability to drink huge amount of alcohol suggesting the increase of alcohol tolerance.. Plem with remembering facts.. Drinking alcoalone: people who used to drink only for social occasions but now they hide drinking.. Driving a car under the influence of alcohol.. Avoiding talks abdrinking and reacting with anger or aggression for suggestion the need to limitate the amount of alcohol.. Reacting with anger when the access to alcohol is difficult.. Trying to stop drinking in order to prove that you have the control over drinking.. According to Skali(1966) we can differentiate 4 stages of the development of alcoholism.. Initial: drinkingohol only for social occasions.. But the future alcoholic notices that alcohol brings relief.. Thus he drinks more often.. Warning: Alcohol drinks become the kind of medicine which is needed.. Drinking alcohol in this stage doesn`t link the person with company.. Voften there are some memory deficiencies.. During the end of this stage the control over drinking becomes smaller.. Critical: loss of control, even a small amount of alcohol is a need for drinking more and more.. Gradually we can observe lack of critic, false beliefs system starts to form.. It is connected with the reasons making us drink.. Attention is paid to the problem with getting alcohol.. There is a necessity to drink in the morning, in order to be able to work during the day.. Final: there is the need to drink from the morning to the evening.. Drinking lasts few days until physical exhaustion appears.. Alcohol toleranc reduced.. Psychical degradation occurs.. Until alcohol is not drunk there is inability to make simple activities: smoke cigarettes, eat some soup.. 10% of alcoholics undergo alcohol psychosis.. Based on B.. T.. Woronowicz,Uzaleznienia, PARPAMEDIA.. Why is alcoholism called a disease?.. An alcoholic is an ill person.. A conversation with Bohdan T.. Woronowicz, M.. (a psychiatrist, a specialist in addiction therapy) which appeared in the Polish bulletin ARKA No.. 51.. has been a principal of the Center of Addiction Therapy in the Warsaw Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology for 30 years.. He carries on an addiction therapy program in an Unlisted Health Care Facility - the Consulting Center AKMED.. He`s been an author of many scientific articles.. Moreover, he is the best friend of the AA Groups.. Due to his help, in 1980, in Warsaw, the first AA Group was created.. At the same time it was the fourth group in Poland.. These AA Groups are functioning today.. Mr.. Woronowicz, I`ve heard that during one of your lectures someone asked you if there was any difference between a drunkard and an alcoholic.. You answered simply: A drunkard drinks because he wants to while an alcoholic drinks because he is ill.. However, many people doubt if there is any alcoholic disease or if alcoholics just made it up in order to justify their willingness to drink.. The knowledge concerning the problem of alcoholism is still to weak in our society.. I`m very sorry about it because addiction to alcohol is a disease, a disease in which no one is guilty, a chronic disease which at the end may lead to death.. As far as scientific knowledge is concerned, it is not possible to fully recover from alcoholism.. Specialist from the WHO also share this opinion.. However, if we get to know this problem more deeply we can prevent people from many tragedies.. But how can we do this if the disease is incurable?.. It is not possible to cure it for ever and in a way that someone who is addicted will never come back to controlled, sociable or normal drinking.. However, the disease can be stopped and a non-drinking alcoholic can lead a respected and happy life.. Millions of alcoholics in all over the world are able to do this.. Of course, just like in case of other diseases, the success depends on proper treatment and the patient`s attitude to this.. Why can some people drink alcohol in small amounts and just occasionally while other people get drunk and can`t live without alcohol?What does it depend on?.. There are many definitions of alcoholism.. To say it straight  ...   alcoholism.. The stages of recovery from alcoholism.. ""Consciousness doesn`t exist without a pain.. ""- Carl Gustav Jung.. The process of recovering from alcoholism is dynamic.. A person who is addicted to alcohol focuses on being sober, obtaining knowledge about oneself and about the disease.. He also focuses on learning about behaviour which enables him to be a non-alcoholic.. Later he discovers his true needs and feelings, verifies norms and values and the new lifestyle - without alcohol.. Next there is a time for the stabilisation of norms and values which is accompanied by emotional calm.. It is also interspersed by tendencies to come back to alcoholism but it doesn`t mean the end of abstinence.. There is a time for cultivating of achievements and for spiritual development.. In this time own limitations are accepted, especially the truth, honesty, friendship.. That is why relations with other people are more mature.. Such a person can work out the ability to control his own emotional feelings and then critical situations are not such a serious danger for sobering but they become the opportunity to stronger psychical integration.. The process of recovery is still progressing.. In such a situation there is a question if a person addicted to alcohol should feel ill to the end of life? I know that each answer to this question will be controversial, but I suggest questioning people who have tried to follow the path from opposing to the disease for many years (I can drink until I tell I don`t want to drink).. Treating non-drinking not as an obligation (just like it was in the initial period of holding back from alcohol) but like new own need encourages to taking care of oneself.. When looking at the way of the development of the disease and the process of recovery, at the change of attitude towards alcohol and towards health, we can take a risk to say that a person addicted to alcohol doesn`t have feel ill to the end of life, although the disease is incurable.. In this case it is difficult to talk about recovery.. We should look at this like a recovery process which should last for all life, sober life and should lead to the improvement of its quality.. The process of recovery may be accelerated by attending the professional program of psychotherapy for addicted people and/or the realisation of the Twelve Step Program for Alcoholics Anonymous.. Based on a Polish book by B.. Woronowicz,Uzaleznienia, PARPAMEDIA.. The return of the disease.. "Coming back to drinking or the return of the disease.. Everything you do leads to health or again to the disease.. " Sober thinking, 2010.. Lately the word "return" has become very popular.. It is used in order to describe cases in which alcoholics quit the abstinency.. This word is even used when an addicted person very often drinks alcohol and from time to time stops drinking.. "I had the return of the disease" sounds nicer than "Sometimes I have a break in drinking alcohol".. So what is the return? Defining it we can say it is a state characterised by the deviation from pro-health behaviour.. It is connected not only with quitting the certain behaviour (resignation from chosen behaviour), but also its aggravation.. It results in a completely diffrent behaviour than the chosen one.. The length of the return is also very important, as well as its intensity measured by the degree of resignation from the chosen aim.. Let`s talk about the return of the disease in case of the people addicted to alcohol because it`s a serious problem for patients and for their therapists.. This problem concerns more than half of the patients who has undergone treatment.. "Taking all of this into consideration, the return of the disease should be treated as to the old patterns of functioning which were present before the start of the treatment (thinking, feeling, behaviour, etc.. ).. All of this can lead to the break of alcohol abstinence.. Thus the return of the disease concerns mainly the people who have finished successfully at least the basic therapeutic program and have been using skills gained during the treatment.. Any other breaks (before and during the treatment) should be treated as the continuation of drinking or the return to drinking.. This return never apperas suddenly and accidentally but it is gradually proggressive.. It is a process which started before someone had reached for alcohol.. Thus it is possible to interrupt this process and stop the results which are sometimes dramatic.. Taking actions will be possible only when the warning signals suggesting the return of the disease will be recognised.. Alcoholics Anonymous protect themselves from coming back to drinking thanks to HALT program.. (hungry, angry, lonely, tired) AA experience confirms that these states (improper diet, anger, loneliness and tiredness) very often preceedv the return to drinking.. Jonathan Swift used to say "Calmness, Diet, Happiness are the best doctors in the world.. " In order not to allow to the disease it is advisable to:.. list your own warning signals, list specific symptoms suggesting the return of the disease.. compare your state and behaviour with the list of these signals.. ask relatives and friends to observe these signals because addic people have problems with recognising them and usu deny them,.. have a plan when some signals appear.. taking care of the spiritual development systematically and build and improve the life in sobriety because stopping the symptoms will not allow for the proper process of recovering from alcoholism.. There are many warning signals but the most common and characteristic are:.. doubt in a possibility to sustaining abstinence or too much confidence in siety,.. dissatistaction from ""disability"" (it is seen as a necessity to restrain from alcohol),.. thoughts about sociable, occasional and normainking so about controlled drinking,.. doubt in addiction and telling yourself that you recovered from the disease,.. tiredness, depression or tenderness,.. irritability, anger, blaming society for problems and failure,.. irregular sleep, rest or diet,.. dealing with past or future than dealing with yourself,.. isolation tendenturning down help and reduction of number of contactsh friends and therapists,.. renewal of contacts with ""alcohol friends"" and visiting places where they used to drink,.. controlled drinking trials which sooner or later will end in the return of the dise.. How to make a list of your own warning signals?.. I suggest choosing the signals which in the past were most common (you can add some others), and then:.. describe each signal in a few words,.. at the beginning of each signal write a password - a word summing up its essence,.. write what to do in case of appearing one of the signal,.. show the list to the therapist, AA sponsor or a friend and ask for comments and if they are not able to understand the thoughts exactly- try to rewrite it.. Yoy can also talk it over with friends and ask m for observing if any signals appear.. Read the list every morning and every eveninga and check if any signal appeared.. When you notice any of the signals you should think what to do and if help is needed.. Woronowicz,Uzależnienia, PARPAMEDIA.. 6.. Polish AA Groups in Ireland.. Polish AA groups in Ireland..
