Abstract

The purpose of the researcher was to investigate alcoholism and surrender. The independent variables were: gender, number of times in treatment, drinking behavior, length of time sober, and level of recovery. The dependent variable was scores from the Reinert S Scale. Five composite null hypotheses were tested. Two main effects were found to be statistically significant at the .05 level. The results of the study indicated that people who had a higher level of recovery had a higher level of surrender than those who had a lower level of recovery. Those who had been sober longer also had a higher level of surrender than those who had been sober a shorter period of time. The results of the present study appear to support the following generalizations: 1. level of recovery is associated with level of surrender, 2. people who are sober longer have a higher level of surrender than those who have been sober a shorter period of time, and 3. the variables, level of recovery, and number of times in treatment should be interpreted concurrently.
