Chamber REST Reduces Alcohol Consumption: 3, 6, 12, and 24 Hour Sessions
Heizer (1987) emphasized the urgent need for studies that focus on the prevention of alcoholism. Selzer (1987) noted that alcoholism is the third most serious health problem in the United States after cardiovascular disease and cancer. In a study of middle aged men (Halldin, 1985) concluded that 28% of all hospital inpatient days were associated with alcohol related or influenced conditions, and 31% of all deaths were estimated to be alcohol related. The significance and importance of an emphasis on the prevention of alcoholism seems further magnified by the findings of the recent Epidemiological Catchment Area Survey (Heizer, 1987) demonstrating the high prevalence of alcoholism relative to other mental disorders.
