A lcoholism is a broad term for problems with alcohol, and is generally used to mean compulsive and uncontrolled consumption of alcoholic beverages, usually to the detriment of the drinker's health, personal relationships, and social standing. It is medically considered a disease, specifically an addictive illness. In psychiatry, several other terms have been used, specifically "alcohol abuse", "alcohol dependence," and "alcohol use disorder" which have slightly different definitions. The objectives of the current research study are: i) to assess the psycho social issues among alcoholics. ii) to assess neurological issue, and iii) to find out association between psychosocial and neurological issues on selected demographic variables. A descriptive research survey using non probability purposive sampling technique was used to select 216 patients (over a period of 5 months from December 2013 - April 2014) at the de-addiction centre at Government Rajaji Hospital in Madurai TN, India. Data was collected using structured questionnaire on socio demographic characteristics. A questionnaire was designed to collect the detailed information such as the demographic details, education and work, alcohol status, duration, daily consumption, trauma history, family relationship and living arrangements, social recreation, medical history, health habits and personal safety. According to current psycho social issue, parameters which induce the addictive of alcohol or alcohol distress cases commonly involved are uneducated people and society based people with low economic status. The research study result indicated that 74.6% people have psycho social issue (like job) and 26.4% people have health related issues (like liver disease and neurological issues). Alcoholism is major socio-economic issues in a developing nation like India. Liver and neurological issue associated with alcoholism is often given priority in tertiary care centre. Social issue are neglected. There is probably more need for counsellors and psychiatrist attending to these issues. Government needs to wake up to this alarming problem before it destroys an entire generation.
