Session Summary

Alcohol use disorder (AUD) continues to be a condition that is detrimentally affecting the lives of many Americans. Mortality continues to be on the rise. With the costs of inpatient hospitalization and stigma of mental health treatment being deterring factors in those seeking care, it’s important to utilize ambulatory management of these disease states when feasible. This session will review the prevalence of AUD, the barriers and suggested solutions to ambulatory management of withdrawal, and how psychiatric pharmacists can be integral to treatment. Participants can expect to learn proper treatment strategies including pharmacotherapy plans for managing the care of alcohol withdrawal in the outpatient setting.
