The effectiveness of RPT on bio-psycho –social parameters among 24 alcohol dependents were done in selected de-addiction centre at Thanjavur district. 12 samples were in experiment and 12 were in control group samples were selected by using cluster sampling Technique. The research design used for this study was True experimental pre test – post test control group design. Data were collected through interview method by using 3 standardized Questionnaires, 1 semi –structured questionnaire and laboratory test method was used to assess the bio-psycho-social parameters. The obtained paired ‘T’ test score had significant effect on ‘P’ Value <0.05 in bio logical parameters (Audit) – psycho-social parameters and there was no significant effect in SGOT & SGPT levels in experimental group and bio-psycho- social parameters of Control groups. It indicates the given RPT was effective, in experimental groups of IAD and DAD there was a highly positive significant correlation and there was a moderate positive significant correlation in control group. The obtained unpaired ‘t’ test score for comparison between experimental and control groups showed a significant difference in bio(Audit) Psycho-Social parameters of the experimental group alone and no difference in control groups of IAD and DAD. The comparison between IAD and DAD group had significant difference in Bio(Audit) psycho social parameters of the experimental groups. Hence the study result revealed that RPT was effective for the experimental groups. And RPT with Care givers support was more effective in DAD experimental group when compared with IAD experimental and Control groups. So RPT with care givers support was more effective on bio-psycho-social parameters of alcohol dependents.
