The Christian who practices social work can be uniquely qualified to provide services to individuals who are struggling with alcohol addiction. This paper supports the concept that there is a holistic paradigm social workers can use in acquiring a broad understanding of alcohol addiction. An overview of contemporary theories associated with alcohol abuse is presented along with a biblical means of understanding alcohol addiction. Implications for social work practice within a Christian context are discussed.
