The current study investigated the role of family resources in successful outcome of alcoholism treatment. Fixty-six patients were administered the Family Environment Scale. The scores of completers and non-completers were compared. The current findings suggest that marital status alone is not predictive of outcome and that self-reports of the family environment should not be accepted without qualification. The need for further research which looks at the role of needs and accommodation within the relationship is discussed.
