15247. Controversies in Alcoholism Treatment: Abstinence Versus Controlled Drinking. Based on a review of the current literature on alcoholism treatment, this paper presents a comparative analysis of the two opposing models of alcohol treatment: 1) the traditional model, which views alcoholism as a disease and abstinence as the only acceptable treatment goal; and 2) newer approaches (e.g., moderation management, controlled drinking, rational recovery), which view alcoholism as a behavioral problem and sees controlled drinking or "moderate" drinking as an appropriate treatment goal. The analysis compares the philosophy of each model, discusses the differences in the two treatment approaches, considers empirical support for the efficacy of each model, and discusses the suitability of each model for different patient populations. KEYWORDS: alcoholism treatment controversies abstinence controlled drinking alcoholics. APA Style. 18 pages, 47 footnotes, 31 bibliographic references. 5,434 words.   $126
