About Alcoholism - Alcoholism Information, Research and Treatment
At the 1972 meeting of the American Medical Association, the House of Delegates added an amendment to its 1971 policy statement on alcoholism.
The policy adopted in 1971 read:
"The AMA identifies alcoholism as a complex disease with biological, psychological, and sociological components and recognizes medicine's responsibility in behalf of affected persons.
"The association recognizes that there are multiple forms of alcoholism, and that each patient should be evaluated and treated in an individualized and comprehensive manner."
