Summary While chronic alcoholics receive the greatest amount of attention--both clinically and in the public eye\m-\problem drinkers actually constitute the majority of people who have trouble dealing with alcohol. Problem drinkers have identifiable life difficulties due to their drinking but are not severely dependent on alcohol: They do not drink every day; they often can maintain control of their drinking when they do; and they do not suffer withdrawal symptoms. Considerable evidence now exists showing that treatment programs designed for alcoholics are completely inappropriate for dealing with problem drinkers. Addressing the needs of this specific population, this book presents an empirically based program of state-of-the-art motivational interventions.
