Rehabilitation of the Chronic Alcoholic

  • E. Mansell Pattison


The treatment of the chronic alcoholic has been one of the most muddled and controversial areas of human service, beset by competing ideologies and conflicting methodologies. In this chapter we will focus on the scientific and clinical data that pertain to rehabilitation of the alcoholic qua alcoholic. Conditions secondary to the use of alcohol will not be of concern here because they are covered elsewhere in this series. I have in mind the treatment of the medical complications of alcohol use, which may not include any treatment for the alcoholism. Similarly, the treatment of acute alcoholism states, including acute intoxication and withdrawal states, do not address the problem of the existing state of alcoholism. In fact, many so-called treatment programs for alcoholics are misnomers, because they treat these side effects of being alcoholic without addressing the problem of the alcoholic being what he is. From a sociological point of view such treatment programs may not only fail to treat alcoholism, but by ignoring the alcoholism serve to reinforce the social role of being alcoholic (Roman and Trice, 1968). Thus although we shall not discuss the technical medical aspects of such treatment programs, we shall address the function of such medical treatment programs in terms of their relationship to rehabilitation.
