This trial is evaluating whether Inpatient admission will improve 2 primary outcomes and 4 secondary outcomes in patients with Alcohol Drinking. Measurement will happen over the course of 4 weeks.
This trial requires 44 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. Inpatient Admission is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. Some patients will receive a placebo treatment. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
About 2.5 million men drink alcohol a year in the United States. If one looks at the men drinking, then 21% are light drinkers. But if the men with light drinking were accounted for, the number of heavy drinkers declines.
Alcohol drinking is commonly treated with counselling and medication, with no clear evidence of which of these are more effective. The evidence for the short-term or long-term benefits of CBT is unclear. Given the large amount of harm associated with alcohol, more studies are needed to establish the role of medications and counselling in alcohol drinking and the long-term outcomes to help individuals with harmful alcohol consumption.
Alcohol consumption involves many components, with significant variation in consumption across countries and regions, and between socioeconomic groups within a country. In terms of health, alcohol consumption is typically associated with a wide range of adverse health effects, including an increased risk of chronic disease, alcohol-related deaths and injuries. The health and social burden of alcohol is substantial and requires further efforts to understand the complexities and risks associated with alcohol consumption, to identify the determinants of alcohol consumption and to prevent and reduce the adverse health effects associated with alcohol consumption. In recent years, alcohol consumption has fallen substantially worldwide, particularly among women; however alcohol consumption continues to be particularly high in low-and middle-income countries.
Drinking can affect you in many ways. The earliest signs are typically short-term effects such as headaches, fatigue or the feeling of being unwell. These can then progress to long-term effects such as difficulty concentrating or having trouble making decisions due to blurred or disorientated vision and loss of judgment. Other early signs include feeling restless, dry mouth or difficulty swallowing. If a person drinks for long enough their tolerance becomes reduced and eventually it seems they are no longer able to drink at all. This is the point where the alcoholic has reached a point of losing control and is not able to stop any more. People can stop drinking if the severity of their alcoholic drinks become too much for the person, their family or their friends.
It is important to understand what causes alcoholic drinking rather than which group is more susceptible to getting alcoholism. It is important for healthcare workers and patients to understand that alcoholism is a disease and that, unlike many of the other [diseases] found in the population, it is not [correctable] by altering lifestyle habits.
Patients having a lower number of outpatient visits to the hospital on the index day of admission were not at increased risk of inpatient mortality. This could be a result of greater experience-based medical care for these patients with a high number of outpatient visits to the hospital.
None of the current drugs available for treating alcohol dependence has the capacity to restore the brain's normal ability to regulate the action of alcohol. (http://mcrf.org/publications/pubs/drinking_control.aspx). Although the number of clinical trials is still small, some have shown a great deal of promise, as have agents in clinical research for this purpose. As of 2018, researchers in this area still lack the means to determine with any reasonable accuracy which of these promising drugs may offer the best approach toward normalization of alcohol drinking. Future research will focus on optimizing current interventions and developing novel approaches to the treatment of alcohol dependence.
Among those with alcohol use disorder, alcohol drinking is primarily a means of coping with negative mood states and not a pleasurable activity. As such, this may not be an effective management strategy in the context of alcohol treatment.
Alcohol and drug intake, the patient’s history and associated conditions and symptoms. Alcohol (not alcohol-related admission for poisoning) has a significant admissions rate (>70%) and may represent one of the most important causes of admissions during an acute hospital stay, the management of which can be challenging. In this series of patients admitted to the general hospital following admission for alcohol related injury, an alcohol dependency pattern of intake was uncommon.
It was found that the perceived seriousness of alcohol drinking was very different in each age category. It should be emphasized that moderate alcohol drinking is more common in each age group when compared to heavy or serious drinking.
The current research reveals that the amount of alcohol that people drink (in terms of volume) is not associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, or other diseases. The majority of studies on alcohol and health have examined heavy drinkers (4 to 5 drinks/day). Data from a recent study of current research suggest that heavy drinking is not a serious public health issue.\n- Alcohol and health\n- Alcoholism"
