Title Where to refer employees for treatment of drinking problems
Bibliographic information Oct. 1985, Vol.27, No.10, p.745-752. 71 ref.
Abstract Although employee assistance programmes appear to be spreading rapidly, much remains to be discovered about how they should proceed. A critical review of the literature on these programmes reveals wide gaps in knowledge about the relative efficacy of a variety of alternative strategies. In particular, empirical data on where to refer employees for treatment are urgently needed. As medical scientists with ties to industry, occupational health professionals can play a decisive role in designing an efficient and effective system of care for alcohol problems.
