Abstract

In this issue, Walker and Roach present their critique of the Dickens Committee's investigation of our research. In their critique, Walker and Roach confound criticism of the Dickens Committee with criticism of the study‘Individualized behavior therapy for alcoholics'. We respond to the specific issues raised to demonstrate the misconceptions, and erroneous assumptions upon which Walker and Roach base their critique. The alcohol field will not be advanced by polemics.
