More People Seek Alcohol Abuse Treatment

March 23, 2008

According to Medical News Today, there are more patients getting addiction treatment services from the healthcare system for alcohol abuse than there were in the past. This is good news as there are millions of people in the United States who have an alcohol abuse problem and never seek professional help for it.

It was also stated that drug companies which make medications for the treatment of alcohol abuse are expected to have an increase in profits in the future. There are a few different types of prescription medications which are used to help make recovery more successful for individuals with an alcohol abuse problem, including Antabuse (disulfiram), Depade or ReVia (naltrexone), and Campral (acamprostate). There are also more than fifty new products to treat this condition currently being tested in clinical trials.

Unfortunately, while the number of individuals seeking treatment for alcohol abuse is rising, the number of people who get help for alcoholism is declining at the same time. More efforts needed for those who have a more serious problem of addiction.

New knowledge that has been gained by recent research is expected to help more patients get treatment. More is now known about health problems associated with drinking excessively and how alcoholism and alcohol abuse are related to one another. Doctors are able to become more informed about addiction and substance abuse, and in turn they may begin screening their patients more often.

It is hoped that new educational programs about alcoholism, alcohol abuse, and the medications that are available for treatment will result in more patients taking advantage of the potential benefits of the drugs.

This information comes from a study titled United States Alcohol Dependence and Abuse Pharmaceuticals: Therapeutic Overview and Patient Outlook. It was done by Frost and Sullivan and published in Medical News Today.
