About Alcoholism - Alcoholism Information, Research and Treatment

Rehab-Industry Cooperation

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN--The De Paul Rehabilitation Hospital [has] a novel [alcoholism] program that involves local industry. Very few of the patients--a total of some 2,500 a year--are voluntary. Joseph de Rosa, De Paul's rehabilitation director, says that most are referred by agencies, physicians, and the clergy, with the largest single referral by industry.

A typical Milwaukee example of an industrial alcoholism program is that of the Allen-Bradley Co. The firm has a three-person team headed by Mrs. Myrian Meyers, director of nursing. Also on the team are Ted Hutton, the company's personnel director, and Mr. K., an alcoholic employee who acts as alcoholism counselor to the firm.
