Abstract

More than 20% of the adult medical patients treated in New York City municipal hospitals were discharged with either a primary or secondary diagnosis of alcoholism during the one year period December, 1976 – December, 1977. These patients were treated either on a general medical service or a special alcohol detoxification unit. In general, patients with complicated medical sequelae of alcoholism were admitted to general medical services (GMS), while patients who voluntarily sought treatment for alcoholism were admitted to detoxification units (DU). These individuals included primarily lower socioeconomic groups, racial and ethnic minorities, predominantly males, and ranged in age from 17 to 67 years (with a mean age of 48).
