“We highly recommend this accessible and research-informed online resource to any clinician working with patients with alcohol-related problems. Alcohol use is the third leading cause of preventable death in America and alcohol-related problems are often overlooked and undertreated. This resource can help clinicians gain more knowledge including how to promote health and reduce alcohol-related harms. You can also earn free CME credits. We are grateful to the NIAAA for creating this resource, which included expertise from our Psychiatry department faculty members.” - Anne Fernandez, Ph.D.
