A study to determine the costs incurred by alcohol abuse in the Navy was conducted at four residential alcohol rehabilitation facilities. This study determined cost in six areas: (1) damage to Navy property, (2) loss of work, due to drinking patterns, (3) legal and administrative expenses, (4) cost of sick call visits, (5) loss of work due to associated medical problems and (6) cost of residential rehabilitation treatment. Cost of operating the rehabilitation facilities was determined by examining budgets of each facility. All other costs studied were determined by interviewing patients at these facilities. Costs incurred by the Navy because of an individual member's alcohol abuse, savings gained by rehabilitating a Navy member as well as loss incurred by not rehabilitating an individual were also determined. This study indicates that it is more cost effective to rehabilitate an individual than to let his abuse of alcohol continue and to use his or her talents rather than to separate early from active duty.
