Abstract

1. A study has been made of 100 men suffering from alcoholism, admitted to the New York Hospital, Westchester Division, between 1934 and 1940.2. A review of the family background has shown the common occurrence of excessive drinking in the relatives, the predominance of small families, and an indulgent, pampering type of mother in 59 instances.3. The drinking usually began at an early age and continued for an average of 15 years before serious treatment was undertaken.4. Follow-up studies of these 100 men three to eight years after discharge revealed that 24 were recovered, and 19 were managing better, making a total of 43 who had been definitely benefited by treatment.
