Abstract [en]

Aim of the study: In the Netherlands, guidelines for the allocation of patients with alcohol related disorders to different levels of care have been implemented and evaluated nationwide. These guidelines cannot be used in the German health care system without adaptation, but with modifications they may prove useful. Aim of this study was therefore to develop an adaptation of those allocation guidelines to the German system. Methods: Using the Delphi-technique, experts in substance use treatment discussed existing addiction treatment services and indication criteria relevant for allocation in 3 rounds. The results of this process were integrated by means of a concluding consensus conference. Results: The Dutch allocation guideline was adapted for treatment decisions following detoxification treatment of alcohol dependent patients. Conclusions: The consented guideline can support the allocation of patients with alcohol-related disorders. The guideline is currently evaluated in a randomized controlled trial.
