dc.description.abstractThis study will present one of the methods of treatment for alcoholism, Conditioned Reflex (Response) Therapy, at the Washingtonian Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, where it is felt that success can be achieved in the treatment of some cases. It may be that this new treatment method is at last on the way to removing the aura of hopelessness, that is, if patients can be selected from the larger alcoholic group who can be considered to have a fairly high probability of success. This Conditioned Reflex treatment group has a high percentage of successes. There are also a certain number of failures. The purpose of this study is to look more closely at the characteristics of both groups of patients, the successes and the failures, to see if the number of successes can be increased by an even more careful selection of candidates for treatment. Before discussing the Conditioned Reflex treatment group, it would seem useful to discuss the larger group from which these patients are chosen and some of the theories of alcoholism.en_US
