Description

These guidelines provide up-to-date, evidence-based information to clinicians on the available treatments for people with alcohol issues. The guidelines are directed to the broad range of health care professionals who treat people with these problems, including primary care (general practitioners, nurses), specialist medical practitioners, psychologists and other counsellors, and other health professionals. As all forms of treatment will not be readily available or suitable for all populations or settings these guidelines may require interpretation and adaptation. Health service planners represent a signi´Čücant audience for this document.

These guidelines do not attempt to provide information about systems of treatment delivery, which is a policy decision that relates to the needs, resources and structure of health care within jurisdictions.
