Our expert says:
Far too many rehab programs in SA concentrate on the inpatient episode, and don't provide the all-important follow-up to help the person stay stopped. Apart from needing to continue to look for work, he needs to keep himself wholesomely busy, such as by good volunteer work, so as to have less empty time in which to think o drinking. He is lucky to have a job or to be able to get one, and shouldn't be too fussy --- when he has his drinking fully under control, he can look for job improvements. Some partners, without at all intending it, do indeed help someone to remain alcoholis, acting as an enabler. Any way, to stop drinking, the efort has to come from HIM, and nobody else can do it for him
