“Yes, I’ve received treatment”:
what does this mean in the
context of epidemiological
surveys for alcohol problems?
BY JOHN A. CUNNINGHAM. JAN BLOMQVIST.
JOANNE CORDINGLEY, AND RUSSELL CALLAGHAN
Aim: To assess what it meatis when respondents say they have
received treatment on population survexs. Method: Fonner heavy
drinkers recruited through a random digit dialing telephone survey
were asked about the type, time, and amount of treatment they had
received. Results: When respondents indicated that they had
received treatment, it appeared that they had a specific treatment in
mind, that they completed the treatment program, and that, for the
mafority, treatment occurred at roughly the same time as their
successful change from heavy drinking. The congruence between
age of change and age of treatment use appeared greater among
respondents with abstinent versus reduced-drinking recoveries.
KEY WORDS: Natural history, alcohol, representative survey,
treatment use.
