In Austria the Curatel law has long applied, not only to the insane, but also to habitual drunkards and others deficient in self-control. This law provides for the appointment of a Curator, under whose control the patient is put when discharged from an asylum, etc. The Curatee can apply from time to time to the Court for the annulling of the Curatel, and the decision rests on the evidence of State physicians and other testimony. In some instances repeated applications have been made before the discharge from Curatorship has been granted.
