Compulsory treatment for alcohol dependence is a socially necessary measure, since patients with alcoholism often harm their loved ones, said the Deputy of the state Duma from «United Russia», the former chief sanitary doctor of Russia Gennady Onishchenko.

Earlier, the Chairman of the Duma Committee on health protection Nikolay Govorin has informed that the bill for the compulsory treatment of alcoholics may be introduced in the state Duma already in spring session. The MP noted that the document proposes to oblige people who have repeatedly committed administrative violations, to undergo treatment for alcohol dependence, in case of refusal may be followed by deprivation of liberty for a term up to one year.

«None of the alcoholic, of course, does not consider himself an alcoholic. Therefore, forced treatment is the socially necessary measure for the companies, because this man, as a rule, being sick, and causes great damage especially loved ones… which can not be taken care of society,» — said RIA Novosti Onishchenko.

The MP stressed that not all patients with alcoholism commit administrative violations, but undermine the mental health of children, do not allow them to fully feed and so on.
