Have a Plan for Alcohol Use Disorder Meds During Transitions of Care
You'll see more patients admitted on medications to treat alcohol use disorder.
Up to one in seven Americans have trouble controlling their alcohol consumption...leading to problems with health, family, work, etc.
Maintenance meds, such as naltrexone, acamprosate, or disulfiram, may help patients drink less...or prevent relapse. Feel comfortable holding these meds...but be ready to manage transitions of care issues.
