Description 

This manual provides state-of-the-art, practical materials to detect, prevent, and intervene with older adults who are at-risk and problem drinkers. It provides the first systematic, practical approach for working with the growing vulnerable population of older adults who use alcohol at risk levels often unnoticed in everyday clinical practice. Including guides to alcohol screening, protocols for managing withdrawal care, and an English/Spanish Health Promotion Workbook for Older Adults, this book is designed as a hands-on text for use in a range of primary and mental health care settings. Physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and case managers will all be able to use it profitably.
