Abstract

The effectiveness of three case-finding strategies for locating elderly alcohol abusers and linking them with an alcohol treatment program was explored. The three approaches emphasized the formal caregiver (CARN), the general public (PAC), and community health clinics (CBO). The CARN and PAC approaches appeared to be most cost-effective. I discuss implications of the findings.
