In our study, 616 primary care physicians of eastern North Carolina were surveyed for screening practices for detection of alcoholism in their patient population.
We defined primary care as Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics and Psychiatry.
We defined eastern North Carolina as the 29 counties that Pitt County Memorial Hospital serves.
In our survey we found that eastern North Carolina is medically underserved as well as having less resources for referral and consultation.
In response to the questionnaire, we found that most physicians agreed on some numerical value for drinks per day, social drinks per week while pregnant.
