North of Market: Older Women's Alcohol Outreach Program.
Fredriksen, Karen I.
Gerontologist, v32 n2 p270-72 Apr 1992
Describes North of Market Older Women's Alcohol Program, outreach program to assist isolated and impoverished alcohol-dependent older women. Discusses service components focused on "building up" clientele and developing support networks rather than traditional approach of first "breaking down" alcoholic's defense barriers. Notes that sobriety was attained by 60 percent of women for minimum of three months (not necessarily consecutive). (Author/NB)
