Abstract:

161 NAVAL ENLISTED MEN WHO HAD BEEN TREATED FOR ALCOHOLISM AT Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center, Long Beach were studied to determine the effect of direct treatment of a wide range of medical problems. A comparison between pre-ARC hospitalizations and post-ARC hospitalizations revealed a dramatic reduction in the number of sick days for both alcoholic-related and general medical complaints and in the number of diagnoses given in hospitalized cases, especially in psychiatric and alcoholic related problems.
