Abstract

This paper is the completion of a study undertaken at the Hartford Dispensary Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program in 1976–1977. The original purpose of the study was to determine whether the actual extent of alcohol abuse among our client population was as high or higher than subjectively estimated by clinical staff. In addition, we also hoped to identify patterns or trends in order to alter treatment approaches, referrals and techniques with an eye toward prevention. The study was conducted in five phases, three of which were completed, written and presented at the 1977 National Drug Abuse Conference.
