Abstract

This paper addresses the clinical presentation of patients with alcohol problems including screening, diagnosis, detoxification, treatment, referral, and longitudinal follow-up. The case-based discussion focuses on the clinical management of a patient whose hazardous drinking progresses to alcohol dependence and requires coordinated care. Ways in which internists can aid patients with alcohol problems by screening, giving brief advice, and providing appropriate referrals when indicated are discussed.
