Abstract
Alkoholizam je bolest, a prema definiciji skupine stručnjaka Svjetske zdravstvene organizacije ''Alkoholičarem se može nazvati ona osoba koja je trajnom i prekomjernom potrošnjom alkoholnih pića oštetila svoje zdravlje, socijalno ili ekonomsko stanje, ili u koje postoje bar predznaci takvih oštećenja''. Grana u medicini koja se bavi istraživanjem alkohola i njegovih posljedica zove se alkohologija. Prema raširenosti alkoholizam se kao bolest nalazi u svjetskim statistikama na trećem mjestu, odmah iza bolesti srca i krvnih žila i malignih tumora. Rani znaci alkoholima su: prvi znaci gubitka kontrole, uzimanje većih količina alkohola, češća pijenja i opijanja, prvi prigovori obitelji, prvi prigovori radne sredine, prvi znaci nediscipline u obitelji i na radnom mjestu, životna dob u prosjeku mlađa od 30 godina i subjektivna zabrinutost zbog pijenja. Cilj ovog rada je prikazati alkoholizam kao javnozdravstveni problem, njegov tijek i njegovo liječenje i posljedice. Medicinska sestra je u procesu liječenja, rehabilitacije i reintegracije jedna od najvažnijih članova tima. Rad medicinske sestre sa oboljelim i njegovom obitelji jedan je od najzahtjevnijih sestrinskih poslova. Ona može pružiti veliku podršku te uvelike pomoći uspješnom liječenju. Primarni imperativ liječenja je apstinencija, a bit samog liječenja je uspostava ljudskog odnosa između ovisnika o alkoholu i njegove obitelji, te ovisnika i stručnog djelatnika te u prihvaćanju, povjerenju, iskrenosti i podršci.
