About The Guideline

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) developed this Guideline on Alcohol Withdrawal Management to provide updated information on evidence-based strategies (hereafter referred to as the Practice Guideline) and standards of care for alcohol withdrawal management in both ambulatory and inpatient settings. While the current clinical guideline focuses primarily on alcohol withdrawal management, it is important to underscore that alcohol withdrawal management alone is not an effective treatment for alcohol use disorder. Withdrawal management should not be conceptualized as a discrete clinical service, but rather as a component of the process of initiating and engaging patients in treatment for alcohol use disorder.
