Abstract:

Patients admitted to two services of a large naval hospital were surveyed and based on the brief Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test MAST were divided into Alcoholic, Questionable Alcoholic, and Nonalcoholic groups. Of this youthful general medical sample, 46.2 were classified as Alcoholic or Questionable Alcoholic. The Questionable Alcoholic group evidenced the most morbidity and the most psychological disturbance as measured by the Cornell Medical Index.
