An enquiry into alcohol dependent subjects admitted to the clinical wards of the first section of Occupational Medicine belonging to Medicina Preventiva Occupazionale e di Comunità of University of Pavia for an alcohol disaddiction treatment has been performed through a phone interview. 289 patients have been contacted and time elapsed from admission to interview was one to three years. The questions focused alcohol abstinence, occupational position before and after admission, any improvement in the work sphere (relationship with the collegues), any feeling of empowerment of the work abilities and any increase in the responsibilities load. From our results we can conclude that alcohol disaddiction carried on during admission has positively contributed to the reinstatement of alcoholics patients.
