Alcohol Psychosis

Alcohol Addiction

Suresh, age 34 gets invitation to attend a birthday party by his colleague friend. Suresh all excited to party, dream about drinking, smoking and dancing all night. He in the urge of fulfilling his dream he over drunk and lost his control over himself and lost consciousness. Later he was taken to a hospital by his family as he was behaving wild and talking to himself throughout the day, which he mentioned as talking to a super natural power.  In short Suresh had lost the touch of reality. “He was acting like a wild beast, like something had taken over him”, reports the wife.


The above mentioned story is real for someone who has experienced Alcohol Psychosis. It is caused by acute intake of alcohol i.e. over drinking than one’s capacity.

To understand about what is alcohol related psychosis it is important to know what psychosis is and how will that feel like. Here are a few symptoms of psychosis:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Depressed mood
  • Sleeping too much or not enough
  • Anxiety
  • Suspiciousness
  • Withdrawal from family and friends
  • Delusions
  • Hallucinations
  • Disorganized speech, such as switching topics erratically
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions


Alcohol, being a neurotoxin has a great impact on people’s brains in an intricate manner due to continued exposure and repeated withdrawal. It can cause serious and life-threatening health concerns. Alcoholism is associated with medical, neurological, and psychosocial complications.


One of these complications involves Alcohol-Induced Psychosis, a secondary psychosis in which contact with reality is compromised by delusions and hallucinations. They occur during alcohol-related conditions such as acute intoxication, withdrawal, alcohol idiosyncratic intoxication, or when there is as major reduction of alcohol consumption. Alcohol-related psychosis spontaneously clears with discontinuation of alcohol use and may resume during repeated alcohol exposure.


The good news is that no matter how severe the problem may seem, most people with an alcohol use disorder can benefit from some form of treatment. Research shows that about one-third of people who are treated for alcohol problems have no further symptoms one year later. Many others substantially reduce their drinking and report fewer alcohol-related problems. This can be attained through family’s support with timely interventions and consulting professionals. There are good rehabilitation centers which can help the alcohol dependents to get over it and lead a decent life by getting back to normal.
