Facts about Alcohol and Alcoholism.
Hall, Leonard C.
Recognition of alcoholism as a treatable illness is a result of public education based on scientific facts. This publication, a digest of a more detailed survey of research about drinking and alcoholism, presents information about alcohol and its effects on individuals and society. It provides facts about the short-term and long-term effects of alcohol on perception, emotions, sexuality, and sleep, and describes the nature and scope of problem drinking. Diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of alcoholism are discussed. The report also deals with the parents' role in the prevention of alcohol abuse among adolescents. Additionally, a helping network consisting of volunteer organizations, government and industry-sponsored programs, and medical resources is described. (JAC)
