Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
Is brief intervention (BI) in primary care effective in reducing alcohol consumption in adults with excessive alcohol intake?
Bottom-Line:
Brief intervention reduces drinking to lower risk levels over 12 months for one in 10 adults with excessive alcohol intake. There is no evidence of corresponding improvement in alcohol related morbidity and mortality. This could take up to -40 hours per year for the average-sized practice.
