Abstract

During the six month period June — December, 1976, 365 of 4,500 adult medical patients were discharged with either a primary or secondary diagnosis of alcoholism at a large New York City medical center. These patients were treated on either a general medical service or a special alcoholism unit within the center complex. Generally, those patients with alcoholism secondary to another problem (e.g., pneumonia) were admitted to general medicine, while those who voluntarily sought treatment for alcoholism or whose medical problems were minor or easily controllable were admitted to the alcoholism unit.
