Preston'K. Harrison, su- perintendent of Big Spring Slate Hospital, said more'than' 52 per cent of the patients admitted in the fiscal year ginning September, 1972, were alcoholics, lie added, that, while this percentage is on the Increase, incidence of "real mental illness" is also on the rise.

Abpul'90-per these Harrison said, were for alco- holism. Harrison stressed thai treat- ment of alcoholics, as lar as medication is concerhcfJ, is rel- atively rhild. Pirsl the -patient is '.'dried pr allowed lo'go through Ihe withdrawal syniplpms of Ihe drug Then, initial medication'is administered to prevent de- lirium', tremcns, a stale of acute mental'confusion, char- acterized by anxiety, tremors, hallucinations, delusions and incoherence, and caused by alcohol poisoning. .Other than this initial medi- tation, no oilier drugs are used, Harrison said. FINALLY the patient begins group therapy and Alcoholics Anonymous programs. The treatment is incorporated in the person', and he is then released lo continue treatment within his home community, -Harrison ex- plained The other 10 per.cenl of in- volunlary commitments are marte up of those patients who suffer one of two different types of mental illness: neu- rosis or psychosis. Harrison said symptoms of mental illness include an in- ability to relate lo others, de- pression, lack of motivation, forget fulness, inability lo make judgments, inability to per- form in a social setting, sus- t' picion and fcel- ing lhat everyone is out lo "gel" the person. It is in this realm in which Harrison said he has seen an increase in the number of cas- es admitted to the hospital. NEUROTICS, HE explained are -suffering ious, .tense, hung up on some- thing, and cannot eat or sleep.. They respond lo' treatment Harrison said the treatment is first in the form of mild Irahquilizcrs "to make sure Ihe patient is comfortablc'and will sleep will at night." Then, ;is with alcoholics, group therapy sessions arc scheduled. 'They r c s p ft n d See MENTAL, Pg, SA, Col. I -1.. ;
