Approximately six percent of the Unites States’ population struggles with a severe alcohol use disorder. This group and their loved ones will experience devastating consequences. On the plus side, most traditional treatments and self-help groups are geared for their recovery. However, there is a larger number of the population—over 90 million people that have a gap in services. They will avoid getting help for fear of being labeled an alcoholic, forced into treatment, made to attend 12-step meetings, and have to stop drinking completely. As health care providers, we need find ways to help this large number of alcohol users who are not experiencing addiction, but may be dealing with a mild or moderate alcohol use disorder.
