Diagnosing Alcohol Problems
Did you know that doctors often miss alcohol problems in their patients? Often, doctors do not receive enough training to recognize the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse, so they may not perform screening tests for alcohol problems. Symptoms from alcohol use often mimic those of other health problems. For instance, people with alcohol problems often have an accompanying disorder such as depression, making it it difficult to correctly diagnose alcohol abuse.
