Locus of control among alcoholics, recovering alcoholics, and non-alcoholics.

Abstract

An alcoholic's relapse to drinking is thought to be related to various interpersonal and intrapersonal factors. Drinking-Related Locus of Control (DRIE) scores among alcoholics, recovering alcoholics, and non-alcoholics were compared in this investigation. Each group consisted of 22 males similar in age and other socioeconomic factors. Results indicated significant differences among the three groups. The non-alcoholic group scored more internally than the alcoholic or recovering alcoholic groups; the recovering alcoholic group scored more internally than the alcoholic group. The findings suggest that assessment of the alcoholic's DRIE scores may be useful in planning and monitoring the treatment of this disease.
