Physicians in .u'eneral practice have a op- portunity In start alcoholic patients toward recovery, es- pecially in towns (hat don'l have special alcoholic treat- ment facilities. dct your husband to make an appointment with your doc- lor for a general checkup. Be- fore he KOCS, talk to Ihe doctor about the drinking problem. That way (lie doctor will look for symptoms and for Ihe opportunity to discuss the drinking problem. Alcohol -dependent persons often visit doctors because of physical or emotional prob- lems related to drinking, but research .shows that alcohol is seldom implicated because the physician doesn't take an ad- Dr. Andelman equate drinking history and the patient is often unwilling to discuss his drinkinti prob- lem. That's why it's so im- portant to advise the doctor of the problem before he exam- ines your husband. Drs. David .James Beard and Robert Fink have researched the general practi- tioner's role in the treatment of alcoholics and say it's ab- solutely essential that the doe- tor net an accurate drinkinti history of the patient. Many medical disorders, including! some .gastrointestinal, car- diovascular and blood ail- ments, have multiple causes, including excessive alcohol use. The researchers say tin1 doctor's ability to obtain a history depends on his own drinkinti habits and bias. The doctor should ask the palient tinns aboul Ihe nature of his drinking. Frequency Il's important for the doctor to establish the alcoholic bev- erage consumed, drinkinti frequency and relationship to meals; the social climate in which drinkinti occurs; the effect for which the patient drinks, and whether the pa- ticill is il Inienince to the driiK. The doctor will also want to know if the patient has been lakinti drutis alonti with the alcohol, if there's evidence ol inappropriate hostility while drinkinti and whether the pa- tient has said or done things while drinkinji thai he can't remember. These :iuestions should all help the doctor pinpoint the relative import- ance of alcohol in the patient's life. If the drinkinn history re- veals a pattern of alcohol abuse, tile doctor can then attempt to uvl the patient into treatment. With more than 711 percent of our adult population drink- inn on a regular basis and thousands sufferiuii from drinkini.' problems every doctor should know of alcohol- ic treatment programs in his area.
