Alcohol interventions need to be in people’s own hands not in specialist treatment services. Most risky drinkers typically don’t want or need alcohol treatment. Services need to take a different approach.
HAGA started developing a digital pathway for risky drinkers in 2011. Our poster offers an overview of the learning so far from our digital alcohol pathway. The poster was presented at the Society for the Study of Addiction symposium 2015.
The poster outlines how digital delivery enables the easy identification of alcohol use disorders and online support services have the potential to reach a cohort not represented in alcohol treatment services.
