The fault for the treatment gap lies with the behaviour of doctors who don’t trust themselves to ask the right questions, Spies said in a statement for the German Society for Internal Medicicine (DGIM) in Wiesbaden.

Alcohol addiction and related illnesses will be the focal point of a medical symposium that begins in Wiesbaden on Wednesday.
