ANALYTICAL STUDY NO. 5: AN ANALYSIS OF DRINKER DIAGNOSIS AND REFERRAL ACTIVITY

In 1975, the presentence investigators conducted 2548 presentence investigations, a total of 1696 of these investigations included drinker classifications. Of these, 845 or 49.8 percent were classified as problem drinkers; 715 or 42.2 percent were classified as non-problem drinkers, and 136 or 8.0 percent were classified as undefined. In Section 2.2, the authors noted a significant increase in the classification of problem drinkers by presentence investigators. This continues a significant trend from 1973 to 1975 of more offenders being classified as problem drinkers. Section 2.3 analyzes referrals by drinker classification. The authors noted a significant increase in those not referred to any treatment. Sections 2.4 and 2.5 discuss Judicial participation in drinker diagnosis and referral and Rehabilitation attendance by drinker class. Section 3.0 analyzes drinker classification profiles. The authors compared socio-economic factors of all drinker classes and noted significant variations of all factors with the degree of the alcohol related problem except for income levels.
