The Guidelines for the treatment of alcohol problems are an update of the 2003 guidelines. They provide up-to-date, evidence-based information to clinicians on treatments for people with alcohol problems. The guidelines are directed to the broad range of health care professionals who treat people with these problems and include a comprehensive review of treatment options. The guidelines do not provide advice on methods of treatment delivery and it is noted that some treatments will not be suitable for all populations and settings.
