The purpose of this thesis is to describe the development and integration of the Alcohol Rehabilitation Program from 1965 to 1980. It shows that throughout this period Naval organizational needs and Alcohol Program needs were being met. It also illustrated that the Navy and Alcohol Program personnel acted in accordance with their own goals and vested interests, both to their mutual benefits. These two different goals were brought together at approximately 1970. These forces responsible were the Vietnam War, selection of Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt as Chief of Naval Operations and passage of PUblic Laws 91-616 and 92-129 on alcohol abuse. The leaders of the Alcohol Program utilized these forces well, and through proper management of their Program, it became an established support unit of the Navy. Author
