Alcoholism is one of the most serious public health problems in the United States today (National Council on Alcoholism, 1985). Alcoholism and alcohol abuse account for approximately 98,000 deaths annually, and twenty percent of national expenditures for hospital care (National Council on Alcoholism, 1985).
