NGO: Stigma Prevents Alcoholics From Seeking Help

The stigma around alcoholism is one of the main reasons why people are hesitant to seek help, according to a NGO

The South African National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence says the stigma around alcoholism is one of the main reasons why people are hesitant to seek help.
 
The organisation’s Cathy Vos says an average of around 10 000 people visit their centres for help every year and 15 percent of these are women.
 
Vos, who states that some people fear losing their jobs if they admit they're addicted to alcohol, describes alcoholism is a vicious circle, adding that while it is hard to kick the habit, with help, it is possible.
