An Improved Quantitative System for Assessing the Acute Alcoholic Psychoses and Related States (TSA and SSA)
The problem of studying and treating the acute alcoholic psychoses and related states has been substantially burdened by the inadequacies of the methods of assessing the condition of the patients at the time of initial contact and during their subsequent course. A new, reliable alternative has been developed and will be described which is an improved version of a previously published reliable quantitative assessment (Gross et al., 1971).
