Abstract:
Article reporting on a survey intended to determine the level of alcohol use and motivation to change drinking habits among persons with recent spinal cord injury (SCI). Data are from a survey of 68 persons with recent SCI during inpatient rehabilitation. It was found that soon after SCI, most at-risk drinkers are at least considering changes in their alcohol use. The authors conclude that this may represent an under utilized window of opportunity to implement interventions designed to reduce alcohol abuse.
