Hospital-based treatment of alcoholism and other, so- called "chemical dependencies", has become common practice in the U.S. In 1983, 4,465 facilities, including hospitals, halfway houses, and outpatient treatment programs and agencies, provided chemical abuse treatment (Denzin 1987: 17). This increase in facilities is mirrored by the increase in people receiving treatment.
