Hopelessness in the alcoholic patient.

Abstract

The inability of the alcoholic to establish a meaningful posture towards the future has been articulated in terms of hopelessness. This study examines the effects of inpatient treatment on measures of hopelessness and implies that the decrease in hopelessness reported results from the restoration of a meaningful present during the course of treatment.
