For several years there has been a difference of opinion as to the cause and the effects of, and the treatment for, alcoholism. These opinions have been equally expressed by professional workers and lay people in the field and have ranged through describing alcoholism as a disease, a moral lapse, and a crime. The majority of these claims have been expressed from limited observation and shallow understanding. Very little research has been done from a personality structure viewpoint.
