Abstract

In 1986/87 we did a followup study on all opiate addicted patients who were admitted to the intensive care unit of the Viennese University Clinic in the years 1980 and 1981 (Uhl A, Springer A, Maritsch F, Pfersmann V, Presslich O, Mayer, A, 1980). The followup periode was 5 years. Out of the wealth of data, that we collected, we will for this presentation focus on issues related to the health state of the patients and on conclusions about an adequat care and treatment system for the addicted population. Let us discribe first the site of our study and the Viennese care system.
