ABSTRACT:
The problem of alcohol occurs at different levels of severity, from mild and annoying threatening. Although alcohol dependence is most severe problem, less severe drinking problem can also be dangerous. Alcoholism is a condition that results in the continued consumption of alcoholic beverages, despite health problems and negative social consequences. Alcoholism is also known as alcohol dependence, is a disease that includes alcohol craving, withdrawal symptoms, physical symptoms, and psychological symptoms like anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies etc., This study was aimed to assess the effectiveness of biofeedback assisted progressive muscle relaxation on reduction of anxiety and depressive symptoms among alcoholics in Krishna Nursing home Coimbatore. This study adopted an evaluative approach, and made use of true experimental randomized pretest and post test control group design. Conceptual framework adopted for this study was the Modified Roy’s adaptation theory (1984). A total of 60 samples out of which 30 samples for experimental group and 30 for control group using simple random sampling (consecutive sampling) who fulfilled the inclusion criteria. Pretest was done for both experimental and control group to assess the Anxiety and depressive symptoms using Beck anxiety scale and Beck depressive Inventory scale respectively. Biofeedback assisted progressive muscle relaxation was administered to the experimental group for 30 minutes once a day for 10 days and routine treatment for control group. Post test was done for experimental and control group using same above mentioned scales. The gathered data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The independent t value of anxiety was 9.324 and depressive symptoms value was 8.42which was significant at P<0.05 level respectively. The study findings revealed that biofeedback assisted progressive muscle relaxation were beneficial ad there was a significant reduction in anxiety and depressive symptoms among alcoholics in experimental group.
