11 Apr Alcoholism in Ageing Australia – Interview with 2GB and South Pacific Private
Rev. Crews, 2GB, hears from Claire Barber, CEO, South Pacific Private Hospital, on treatment options for the increasing number of older Australians abusing alcohol.
Alcohol consumption makes the older person more vulnerable because of the natural changes to the body and brain that occur in addition to the direct toxic effects which can occur at any age.
It is much better for the older person whose alcohol consumption may be becoming excessive to seek advice and treatment rather than action being deferred until serious problems have arisen.
