This is a cross-sectional descriptive and quantitative approach, using data from interviews and checking the medical records of patients, and the study population, 25 adults undergoing liver transplantation for alcoholic cirrhosis. Of these, 92 % were male with a mean age of 59 years, 40% of them reported monthly income 1-3 times the minimum wage. The relapse of alcohol use was observed in 1 (4%) patient while 20 % have expressed a desire to alcohol consumption after transplantation. The observation of low recurrence rate may be related to gaps between the reliable transfer of data obtained in clinical and counseling to patients. Early identification of adverse events, specifically the recurrence of alcohol consumption that are deemed feasible to transplant these patients, competing to promote professional promotion, prevention and recovery of health in order to establish discipline and self-care is essential.
