Abstract
The purpose of this evidenced-based review is to examine how alcohol prescription, compared to pharmacotherapy, affects healing time for those with alcohol abuse disorder (AUD) during the hospital stay. The problem is relevant for Montana healthcare professionals as alcoholism is a public health issue. Deciding which intervention to implement creates a challenge because both methods have pros and cons. It is crucial to examine both objective and subjective data when looking at this population because addiction has both psychological and psychological components. This being so, it is important for licensed healthcare providers to deliver evidenced-based care in treating those with this diagnosis. Comparing and contrasting research will make it possible to create an environment where the best outcome can be achieved for those with AUD. Whether it be pharmacotherapy or alcohol prescription in the hospital setting, the optimal goal should be to decrease cravings and withdrawal symptoms, improve quality of life and healthcare outcomes, and promote individualized care.
