HALPERN, Elizabeth Espindola; FERREIRA, Salette Maria Barros  and  SILVA FILHO, João Ferreira da. The effects of the labor situations in the construction of the alcoholism of the brazilian's navy military patients. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.2, pp. 273-286. ISSN 1516-3717.

The alcoholism among militaries became a matter of special attention in the Brazilian Navy since the creation of the CEDEQ, in 1997, when it was considered a relevant problem in the military life. This article, based on bibliographic research and observations with patients of the CEDEQ, analyses, critically, the factors that take place in the construction of the alcoholic disease that affect them. The determining factors seem to go beyond those related to the military institution itself. It comes to the conclusion that the easy access to alcohol, particularly due to the existence of the navy tradition and its cultural aspects, which are favorable to its use, contribute to the heavy consumption.
