Gabriel Rubio-Valladolid
Head of the Psychiatry Department at the University Hospital 12 de Octubre in Madrid (Spain) and Professor of Psychiatry at the Complutense University of Madrid. He has extensive experience in the care and clinical aspects of alcohol-dependent patients. He has developed integrative therapeutic programmes that seek to facilitate cooperative work in the health and social sphere, for the continuation of care of alcohol-dependent people.

The best treatments for alcohol dependence are currently those developed within multidisciplinary programmes, which include psychological, sociological, and medical dimensions. It is important to consider recovery as the culmination of a process of change.
