Abstract

The diagnosis of alcoholism alone should not preclude consideration of liver transplantation as a mode of treatment. State and private agencies dealing with issues of third-party payment need to involve actively clinicians experienced in the field of alcoholism and other drug dependencies in the establishment of appropriate guidelines free of arbitrary abstinence requirements and based on solid data, taking into account alcoholism treatment.
