Abstract:

Alcoholism has been called the most serious drug problem in the United States today, a multifaceted disease for which no cure has been found, but which can be arrested. The paper discusses the Navy alcoholic and presents data which indicates the typical Navy alcoholic. To treat alcoholics the Navy has a series of alcoholic rehabilitation centers and alcoholic rehabilitation units at Navy hospitals around the country, largely staffed by recovered alcoholics who use generally accepted methods of treatment. Some of the statistics are discussed. Modified author abstract
