Abstract

The problem of alcoholism in the military service is briefly reviewed. An experimental program in rehabilitation is described, and the results in 50 cases discussed. These results indicate that the program has been of value. The experience of the workers in this program provides the basis for a new approach to alcoholism in the military service, one that stresses education for prevention and early recognition, encourages referral and self-referral for prompt evaluation and treatment of suitable cases, and provides for a more flexible, rapid, and effective means of disposition within the framework of existing regulations.
