The substance abuse consultation team : addressing the problem of hospitalized substance abusers.
The abuse of alcohol and other drugs represents a significant health care problem that has largely gone unrecognized and undiagnosed by physicians.
A substance Abuse Consultation (SAC) Team was initiated at a tertiary care teaching hospital to provide expert diagnostic, interventional, and management services for hospitalized substance abusers.
This preliminary study represents the first 100 consults received and reviewed.
All 100 patients agreed to an interview and evaluation by the SAC Team.
