Abstract

Self-reported somatization symptoms could add to the detection of extreme alcohol use. In addition, primary care and other physicians should consider somatic complaints as possible indicators of concurrent and future risk for extreme alcohol use. Potential benefits of better detection of extreme alcohol use include supporting primary and secondary prevention efforts and reduced expenditures for the diagnostic workup of somatic complaints.
