Abstract

North America, in the 1960’s saw the burgeoning of a new social service sector to deal with the problems of alcohol and drug dependency. Most of the treatment agencies established at this time had modest beginnings, some were forced to close, while others were able to maintain and expand their operations by finding ongoing sources of funding, gathering community support for their programs, and developing political connections at various levels of government.
