Alcohol Use Disorders

Chronic alcohol consumption at high, or in some cases, even moderate levels has significant detrimental effects on health, both physical and psychological. It can lead to alcohol use disorders, a chronic condition sometimes associated with co-occurring mental health disorders such as depression. Treatment involves psychosocial and behavioral therapies and medication. Research on treating alcohol use disorders is complex, involving issues such as access to care, relapse, cost and organization of services, treatment effectiveness, and mutual help and recovery services.
