Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The authors performed a retrospective analysis of medical records and death certificates for 99 consecutive patients who had an alcohol‐related medical problem that prompted a petition for court‐ordered alcohol treatment. Ninety percent voluntarily participated in initial evaluation. Two appeared to be alcoholfree 6 months after treatment. The number of alcohol‐related hospital visits was not different before and after intervention. Death certificates revealed that at least 12% of the patients had died within 2 years of the petition. Court‐ordered alcohol treatment for patients for serious medical sequelae of alcoholism does not appear to be successful. 1995 American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry
