Alcoholism in Mexican-Americans: intervention and treatment.

Arredondo R, Weddige RL, Justice CL, Fitz J.

Studies have shown that Hispanic males have higher rates of heavier drinking and problems associated with drinking than the general population. The authors discuss Mexican-American cultural and religious views on alcohol consumption and sex-role differences that influence drinking behavior and intervention. Then, drawing on their experience with a chemical dependence program that serves a catchment area that is one-fifth Mexican-American, they discuss how clinicians can work with cultural beliefs and practices to effectively treat Mexican-American alcoholics within a traditional treatment program.
