Abstract

The frequent treatment failures of patients with alcohol and drug‐abuse disorders are often attributable to poor treatment choice. The absence from the literature of clinically relevant criteria for serving this population is noted. Four categories of patients are identified, and a diagnostic framework for the selection of drug‐free treatments is proposed. 1991 American Orthopsychiatric Association
