Alcohol rehab clinics have to deal with a range of conditions. They do not exclusively have to deal with alcoholism. It would be wrong to assume that every patient is a straight alcoholic with nothing else wrong. The fact of the matter is most people have a range of other mental issues contributing to their addiction. This is why you will regularly find doctors prescribing medications alongside the usual itinerary of talking therapies.
I'm grateful to be mentioned in this inspiring article about a remote coaching client who suffered head trauma and persevered then triumphed. http://www.bellinghamherald.com/2013/01/28/2855310/dominic-alexander-keeps-on-running.html
