"The Council on Mental Health urges hospital administrators and the staffs of hospitals to look upon alcoholism as a medical problem and to admit patients who are alcoholics to their hospitals for treatment, such admissions be made after due examination, investigation and consideration of the individual patient. Chronic alcoholism should not be considered as an illness which bars admission to a hospital, but rather as a qualification for admission when the patient requests such admission and is cooperative, and the attending physician's opinion and that of the hospital personnel should be considered. The chronic alcoholic in an acute phase can be, and often is, a medical emergency.
