Difficulties in alcohol use are widespread and it is important that all professional psychologists in healthcare, education and industry have the skills to identify problem drinking, both amongst their peers and their clients and are able to provide effective referral, support and treatment.

For example 25% of all hospitalized patients have a significant alcohol problem, regardless of admitting diagnosis or presenting problem. And an estimated 20% or patients in a primary care or family practice have a significant alcohol problem. See Epidemiological studies of alcohol use
