Doctors Should Screen Patients To Reduce Alcoholism
Date:8/15/2013

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

According to Fox News, (5/14), [Doctors should ask patients about alcohol misuse, panel says, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), a government-backed panel, says that doctors should ask adults how much and how often they drink alcohol and counsel those with risky and dangerous drinking habits. The panel reviewed studies conducted since 1985 and determined that screening patients can accurately detect alcohol abuse and that counseling can reduce heavy drinking.

Anyone can become alcohol dependent and suffer severely from the disease. Those experiencing the detrimental effects of alcohol abuse should check into a 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village.

At Harbor Village, individualized programs have been developed by a team of medical experts to help clients achieve recovery from both drugs and alcohol. Located in Miami, Florida, Harbor Village, an [alcoholism treatment center, allows each client to experience detoxification in a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite complete with satellite television, over an acre of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of a friendly, knowledgeable staff.

According to [Doctors should ask patients about alcohol misuse, panel says, Screening "takes hardly any time at all, and it works pretty well," said Dr. Michael LeFevre, co-vice chair of the Task Force and a family medicine doctor at the University of Missouri School of Medicine in Columbia.

"From my point of view as a family physician, the shorter and easier the better," he said.

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has set a standard for what the agency considers a risky level of drinking. For men, that means consuming not more than four drinks in a single day or 14 drinks per week. For women,not more than three drinks in a day or seven in a week.

Asking men the last time they had five drinks in one sitting, and women the last time they had four, is a good start, according to LeFevre. "If they can name a time, that means we should be talking to them more about what their alcohol consumption looks like," he said.

“If you allow an alcohol dependency to be left untreated your condition will likely worsen. Your best option is to check into a detox center such as Harbor Village and get the help you deserve,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
