Abstract

Over the past two years we have been collecting information on selected intact families in which alcoholism has persisted formany years, often over several generations. The orientation of the project is based upon an interactional model of chronic alcoholism in which problem drinking is viewed as an adaptive response to specific intrafamilial issues and is retained to provide interactional continuity.
