ABSTRACT

In India, about 62.5 million people are alcoholics and Kerala is one of the leading states in alcohol consumption (WHO, 2014). Alarmingly 90% of alcoholics experience at least one relapse in the 4 years following de-addiction and complete abstinence(National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 1989) . Relapse of alcoholism is a sensitive social issue, may be related to various factors related to client, family and society causing never-ending loss to the nation with regard to the health and wealth of every citizens affected.  Though quantitative studies are, available to find the causative factors, the real verbatim expression of clients regarding what is pushing them to undesirable relapse have to be critically addressed and analyzed.  The investigators adopted a mixed approach to find the risk factors of relapse though sequential explanatory design.  The investigators developed a Conceptual framework based on the meta-matrix on risk factors of relapse among patients with Alcohol Dependence Syndrome.
