Excessive alcohol use, which affects almost a third of adults, is the nation's third leading cause of preventable death. It is a major risk factor for many health, social, and economic problems. In addition, the problem has worsened with the COVID-19 pandemic.
NC AHEC will help primary care practices implement evidence-based interventions such as screening for unhealthy alcohol use; brief interventions for adult patients who drink too much; and medication-assisted therapy for patients with an alcohol use disorder. This activity is funded by AHRQ's Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) initiative.
