Background of the Study: Alcohol is broken down by the liver. This produces harmful chemicals that can damage and kill liver cells. Although the liver is very good at repairing itself, it cannot keep up with the damage caused by drinking too much alcohol on a regular basis.

Methodology: The research approach for the study was quantitative research approach, the research design used was one group pretest and post-test design, and population of the study was Prayash Nasha Mukti Kendra in Gwalior, 30 sample selected for the study by using quasi experimental research design and convenient sampling technique. The tools used was to assess the knowledge regarding cirrhosis of liver among slums areas. The studies 30 sample of alcoholic users were chosen using a non-probability sampling approach. The pilot study was feasible in term of time, money, material and resources.
Results: The mean value of pre-test: The pre-test knowledge scores of alcohol users assessed using a knowledge questionnaire. In the pre-test, a maximum of 22 [76.3%] were found to have poor knowledge, 6 [18%] had average knowledge, while 1 [4.3%] had good knowledge. The mean score was 7.9183 and the SD is 5.5779.

In the posttest, a maximum of 28 [94%] were found to have good knowledge, 1 [3%] had average knowledge. While 1 [3%] had poor knowledge. The mean score was 24.5314 and the SD is 3.71.
Comparison of pretest & posttest: The comparison of pretest and posttest scores of the study sample regarding alcohol-induced liver cirrhosis. In the pre-test, a maximum of 22 [76.3%] were found to have poor knowledge, 6 [18%] had average knowledge, while 1 [3%] had good knowledge. The mean score was 7.9183 and the SD is 5.5779. In the posttest, a maximum of 28 [94%] were found to have good knowledge, 1 [3%] had average knowledge, while 1[3%] had poor knowledge. The mean score was 24.5314 and the SD is 3.71.
The association between posttest knowledge scores and sociodemographic variables is not critical at p<0.05 levels
Conclusion: The mean difference between pre-test and post-test value showed that the assisted video teaching programme was effective in improving knowledge of alcohol users regarding to cirrhosis of liver.
