And did you know that bias goes both ways? Patient bias towards physicians and the healthcare industry can play an important role as well.

Alcohol use frequently co-occurs with anxiety disorders, especially during the highly anxiety-provoking circumstances of the current pandemic. People increasingly self-medicate their stress with alcohol, sometimes leading to frank alcohol use disorder. Despite alcohol’s legal status and social acceptability in many countries, it remains a potentially dangerous, toxic substance. Withdrawal from alcohol can be fatal, and medically managed withdrawal is often necessary to ensure patient safety. In this presentation, we will describe the fundamental pharmacology and acute presentations of alcohol use disorder and discuss counseling approaches. We will then explore the clinical aspects of the three FDA-approved medications for its treatment: disulfiram, naltrexone, and acamprosate. We will conclude with some novel ideas about future directions in the pharmacotherapy of alcohol use disorders.
