Evolution of dependency

Along the last centuries a group of specialists - having/not having scientifically education - for the toxicomania problem couldn't freeze with the old knowledge related to the

consequences of the physical intoxication and they seek to get additional information regarding the patient's psychic before and along the installation of the alcohol dependence's evolution.

In this field, a noticeable contribution is the one of the American professor E.M.Jellinek who stated a typology of the alcohol's consumers; he classified them in 5 categories.







The alcoholism's forms
(by prof. E. M. Jellinek)

ALFA Type

They consume alcohol to relieve themselves, trying to solve the problems in this way. In this type still exists control on alcohol's consumption, but progressively the dependence could appear.

BETA Type

They consume alcohol frequently, on different occasions, without the dependence being still installed. Although could occur some organical complications due to alcohol's abuse (liver's and stomach's diseases, etc).

GAMA Type

They are are dependent by alcohol firstly from the psychic, but physical point of view too. They can't control the consummated amount of alcohol (they can't stop after few glasses of drinks).

DELTA Type

They are firstly physically dependents by alcohol. They can keep control on the consummated amount of alcohol for a longer time (they don't get drunk, but they can't give up).

EPSILON (periodicals) Type

They are dependents by alcohol, consuming uncontrolled for few days, having at the same time longer periods without abusive consumption.


We can sustain that the biographies of the person's dependent of alcohol are as different and alike such as the people's biographies in general.

Starting from this point the professor E.M.Jellinek elaborated a synthetically description of the alcohol's dependence evolution that is fit for a large part of the alcoholics, having an important contribution for understanding the phenomena that what has been seen until then like an aleatory and tragically destiny becomes the natural evolution of a disease - the alcoholism.

The professor Jellinek assesses 4 evolution phases for the alcohol's dependence and a group of characteristic symptoms of each. The described symptoms should not appear obligatorily for the each case and also should not be present all of the symptoms for a phase.
