Journal/Book: International Journal of Social Psychiatry. 1972; 18: 171-182.
Abstract: Describes in detail the course of treatment followed at the Institute for the Study and Control of Alcoholism, Zagreb, Yugoslavia. The program emphasizes education, family involvement, and continued contact with outpatients. The daily schedule of the patient includes drug therapy, group therapy, education, occupational therapy, recreation, music therapy, and family therapy. Summary figures present patient profiles, rates of improvement, and describe the local prevalence of alcoholism. Continued abstinence is highly related to the patient's joining a Club of Treated Alcoholics, his family's participation in the program, and his ability to secure and maintain employment.
