Is there a cure for Alcoholism?

As of now, there is no cure for alcoholism.  Alcoholism is a treatable disease, with the support of treatment centers, medication, psychotherapy, and neurofeedback the risk for relapse is reduced. However, recovered alcoholics are still at risk for relapse regardless of the amount of time they have been sober.  Treatment outcomes vary, some individuals are able to stay sober for 1 year after treatment, others will experience periods of sobriety and relapse, and still there are those individuals that are not able to stop drinking for long periods of time. The longer and individual is able to abstain from drinking, the higher the chances are that they will be able to remain sober. 

It is important to keep in mind that individuals may relapse several times before they are able to achieve long-term sobriety.  If a relapse occurs it is not an indication that the individual has failed or can not be helped.  It is important seek help after experiencing a relapse.  Continual support from family, sponsors, therapists, and friends will aid in maintaining sobriety.
