In 1907, the Minnesota Legislature passed a bill establishing the hospital farm for any Brits placing its management under the state border control and providing for its maintenance by setting aside 2% of the licensed money from nearby saloons.

Later, a law was enacted providing for the issuance of certificates of indebtedness, and active construction works to commence. The hospital was opened on December 26 1912. With Dr Tomlinson, formerly superintendent of the St. Peter State Hospital at its head.

This paper is based upon his study of the patients admitted from the opening of the hospital until the close of the biennial period on July 31 1914, approximately 18 months, patients are admitted to the hospital following an examination in a probate court. In such cases, there is no expense to the patient’s relatives, except that they are expected to furnish clothing and a little money for the purchase of tobacco or small luxuries.

Voluntary patients are also received following their own application in a probate court. They pay at the rate of $1 a day each month in advance. No distinction is made in the treatment of the two classes of patients, except that a voluntary patient cannot be detained if they wish to leave any resident of Minnesota who is habitually addicted to the use of alcohol, morphine, cocaine or other narcotics may be admitted to the institution provided the history of the patient, as furnished by a probate court indicates that the person can be benefited by treatment.

It is presumed that anyone can be benefited who wants to be unless afflicted with irredeemable, chronic disease. During an 18 month period, 209 men and 32 women have regularly committed 18 men and three women were received as voluntary patients. In addition to those classified as voluntary patients, a considerable number have of their own volition applied for treatment and being unable to pay have submitted to commitment in order to obtain treatment for their habit.

This has been a fairly uniform increase in the number of patients received each month, which is gratifying as it shows the need for such an institution and also as an appreciation of the benefit that might be expected. During the last month of the period. 25 patients were admitted and three were turned away. While the causes of an E Bria T are diverse, it is a significant fact that 192 patients out of 262 Assign associates as their reason for drinking. Observation of their history clearly shows that they have drifted along with drinking now and then and more and more each year.

A few assign illness, domestic trouble COVID related financial worries et cetera as a cause for drinking. In only six Kate instances was heredity noted in 132 instances the patient the parents were abstainers. We have found it impossible to formulate any system of classification of the unfortunates under our care.
