This paper highlights the characteristics of 800 alcohol-dependent patients treated at a drug de-addiction centre, over a period of 5 years. The mean score on SADD (severity of alcohol dependence data) questionnaire was 23.95, which indicates a severe level of dependence. Followup analysis of 607 cases showed that 379 (62.4%) patients had not utilised the follow-up services beyond one month. Discussion focuses on retaining patients in follow-up.
