Task 1:advert

1) In the First advert (binge drinking girl) alcohol is portrayed as a negative substance. In the first advert we see a girl whose clothes are torn, her heal is broken, her makeup is smudged and she has vomit in her hair. In the advert a very low spirited song is played in the background.

4. It is not a set period of time that a patient will be done with rehabilitation, some patients could need 90 days in rehab whereas others only need a 30 day session. The session time varies according to the addiction in question, the individual's history with addiction, dual diagnosis conditions, and the individual's specific physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.
5. No, alcoholism can never be cured because the actual cure for alcoholism has not yet been found. This means that even if an ‘ex’ alcoholic has been sober for many years he/she could have a relapse at any given moment.
6. The long term effects of alcoholism in terms of rehabilitation is that the long term rehabilitation is a longer period of time. In terms of personal wellbeing’s is that you will have to be more couscous when alone and to develop a self-control and then this is better for your personal wellbeing.
