Alcohol Therapy

Most alcoholics have no confidence in therapists who are themselves not alcoholics. In their view such therapists do not know what they are talking about for they have not experienced what alcohol actually does. Sure, they might have read books, have talked to a lot of patients, have seen a lot of misery but still, they do not know, not really, so what could they possibly tell me, many alcoholics will ask.

The point is not whether alcoholics who think like that are right or wrong. The point is that quite some alcoholics do think like that. And therapy that deserves its name has to take that into account.

Hans Durrer, 2013
