Abstract

This study examined the impact of prior alcohol/drug abuse problems on long-term outcome for a series of women with bulimia nervosa. The patients with a history of alcohol/drug abuse problems were not more likely to demonstrate a pattern drug use following bulimia treatment, and overall their outcome was comparable to the outcome of those patients who had not had alcohol/drug abuse problems.
