AbstractAIMS: A single case study of alcohol withdrawal through monitored alcohol consumption in a hostel resident.
METHOD: A standard dose of cider was given when the client requested, and had a lower breath alcohol concentration than when he took his previous dose of cider.
RESULTS: Abstinence was uneventfully achieved on two separate occasions each taking only 2 days.
CONCLUSIONS: Withdrawal from alcohol through monitored alcohol consumption is a potentially effective and rapid procedure, but the limits of its appropriate use have not been established.
