Summary This book provides an in-depth review and concise analysis of 1000 studies on alcoholism and psychosocial treatment. In this English edition, which has been extensively revised from the original Swedish version, the major conceptual approaches to alcoholism are evaluated. The ongoing debate on whether alcoholism should be regarded as a disease or not is examined, and a discussion on the importance of psychological versus genetic factors is included. This cohesive work analyzes the methodological strategies of comparative outcome research, and suggests alcoholism treatment services from the perspective of public health.
Subject Alcoholism -- Treatment.
