THE NEW LOOK IN ALCOHOLISM TREATMENT Matching Fingarette (l988b) has considered some of the purported innovative advantages of the new look in alcoholism treatment and theory in contrast to treatment based on a disease conception of alcoholism. One such new look, he claims, is the matching of patient and treatment. There is a very extensive, varied, and complex literature on the general problem of matching patient and treatment (Lindstrom, 1992). Fingarette does not discuss the relevant issues or review the pertinent research.
Descartes' volitional decision produced a volitional bifurcation. Anatomy and physiology, the study of structure and function of the body follows the same deterministic rule as physical science and can be studied by its methods. Mind does not. It must have its own method, looking inward. It led to the development of a consciousness centered psychology that dominated the field for 300 years, represented in the latter part of the 19th century by two preeminent figures. One, we already mentioned, Wundt, and a second, Brentano the grandfather of modern cognitive psychology.
Fingarette and others fail to note that a relatively small number of subjects were involved and the result appears as a higher order statistical interaction which was not predicted and therefore is reasonably interpreted as a chance occurrence. That the latter is the case is suggested by the results obtained in a larger outcome study by Welte, Lyons, and Sokolow (1983). They obtained no evidence indicating that younger alcoholics have a better outcome at a second follow-up if they had been engaging in controlled drinking at an earlier follow-up, whereas older alcoholics have a better outcome with abstinence.
