Adjusting their long-term non problem drinking rate for substantial underreporting of consumption and for other factors leads one to a long-term nonproblem drinking estimate of three percent, exactly what Pettinati and colleagues (1982) found in their four-year follow-up study. (p. 265). Rand Report II is an improvement over Rand Report I in methodology and it failed to support the widespread notion that a high rate of controlled moderate drinking is evident in recovered alcoholics. However, it has fostered another persistent erroneous generalization.
It is simply between dogma, prejudice and arbitrary authority, on the one hand, and openness, reason and a belief in the scientific method, on the other. (p. 258). THE NEW LOOK IN ALCOHOLISM TREATMENT Matching Fingarette (l988b) has considered some of the purported innovative advantages of the new look in alcoholism treatment and theory in contrast to treatment based on a disease conception of alcoholism. One such new look, he claims, is the matching of patient and treatment. There is a very extensive, varied, and complex literature on the general problem of matching patient and treatment (Lindstrom, 1992).
What would have been the success rate then? The problem is not, as Miller and Hester (1980, p. 63) put it, for how many are moderation approaches a viable approach? The question is for whom is it appropriate and how do we know this? Miller et al. (1992) found that engaging in controlled drinking at one year follow-up does not predict that the individual will be successfully engaged in controlled drinking at a later time. In contrast, abstinence at the end of one year post-treatment does predict successful abstinence at a later time.
