In this study, we focused on the overlap between medical care and non-medical care in support for alcoholism, and reviewed its challenges.The support for alcoholics began with medical care, but medical care providers could not provide treatment for individuals with alcoholism that had long-term efficacy. The persons who formulated an effective way for recovery from alcoholism were those with alcoholism themselves. They organized a self-help group (SHG) for recovery in cooperation with some dedicated doctors who assisted in the group's growth and development.In this way, medical care started by logistic support to establish non-medical care, and then, learning from the SHG, theydeveloped an alcoholism rehabilitation program (ARP) as a medical treatment. Since then, gradually, the ARP has become an established component of medical treatment.As a result we emphasize the necessity for corporation between medical care as support with definite term and non-medical one as indefinite support in a life-long term.
