Example text

9 Page 16 Back in the 19th century, however, only a few others attempted to reconcile science and morality in their theories on alcoholism. In Vienna, another pioneer in the psychology of the unconscious, Alfred Adler, thought that alcoholism, like other psychological disorders, was the result of organ inferiority and a manifestation of his famous "masculine protest": through drinking the alcoholic escaped from the duties and responsibilities of community membership. 10 In Switzerland, Auguste Forel, professor of psychiatry at Zürich University and reformer of the Burghölzli Mental Asylum, questioned why psychiatry, with its new discoveries about mental processes, still had no results with alcoholism.

Comment This attitude and the treatment that arise from this model are common currency among doctors today, despite the evolution of a new medical model which corresponds better to research in alcoholism over the past 30 years. Although a medical model it is saturated with moral values that do not belong to the generally admitted domain of medicine. Normally, a doctor treats an illness any illness, from syphilis to war wounds regardless of the morals or social status of his patients. Medical morality, stemming from the Hippocratic oath, values physical health and life first of all, putting it often at odds with general social morality but preserving thereby a basic and vital counterbalance to the emotionally charged aspects of any pathology.

The cause as to why some people act this way is mysterious. The treatment consists of getting the alcoholic to drink responsibly. It does not consist in getting him to stop altogether, for that would be as antisocial as alcoholism itself. " The prognosis is considered good if the right rewards and punishments are found, otherwise the prognosis is Page 22 gloomy, and if the alcoholic cannot learn to drink like a normal person he may be relegated to the ranks of the impaired. People competent to apply this treatment are all moral members of the drinking society.
