Dr. Deepak Raheja Explains Few Myths & Facts
Related To Alcohol Addiction
Being a psychiatrist and the director of Hope Care India, a nationally recognised mental
wellness clinic, I have come across many individuals with severe alcohol addiction. I have
seen families breaking down and relationships going through hardships, only because a

At Hope Care India, we thrive in helping people who suffer from alcohol addiction. We
understand that no one wishes to become dependent on a substance that ruins their body,

Myth: Alcohol addiction treatment is no use, as people often relapse!
I would not deny the fact that there are many cases when an addicted person has relapsed,

of no use. The treatment sessions in reliable psychiatric rehabilitation center like Hope Care
helps the addicted person to learn better coping skills, as well as reduce some of the health,
financial and societal problems that their addiction causes. We offer community based
groups, outpatient based treatment and many different type of treatment programs for
different types of patients.
Myth: Alcohol addicted patients have mental issues!
Fact: Through my professional career, I have come across different alcohol addicted
patients. There are some who do have mental issues that have pushed them towards the
addiction. However, not everyone that is addicted to alcohol is suffering from mental
disorders; this is a blanket statement.
Hope Care India, psychiatric rehabilitation centre, provides holistic treatment programs to
people suffering from addiction. Being one of the best psychiatric hospitals in Delhi, I and
my team of professional psychiatrists make sure that every patient is given utmost care. I
make sure we have the top psychiatrists in Delhi, all under one roof to bring an integrated
approach of mental wellness to the people and to the society. For more information:
