  • Answer: Most (if not all) mental illnesses are caused by chemical imbalances in, or injuries to, the brain. Science is learning more and more about the specific causes, and diagnoses are improving.

    However, because mental "illness" is usually measured in relation to a standard considered normal, and because definitions of normal can vary, defining it clearly becomes difficult. What is normal behavior for one segment of the population might seem quite abnormal to another*. As the actual physical diagnostics improve, definition will improve accordingly.

  • Answer: Alcoholism is not a curable disease. It can be arrested by abstaining from alcohol, but the neurological changes persist, and can be reactivated if the person resumes drinking. Typically, it takes very little time for the person to return to the level of addiction where they left off.

    That said, it can be arrested completely by not drinking, and some of the damage can be repaired. Doctors who supervise this are known as addiction specialists, addictionologists, or psychiatrists. There are also non-medical therapists who are successful in assisting people to recover and, of course, Alcoholics Anonymous.
