There is growing interest among hepatology providers in incorporating addiction medicine skills in the evaluation of patients with addiction-related liver diseases, particularly alcohol-associated liver disease. Recent studies have shown an association between receipt of addiction treatment and improvements in liver-related outcomes in patients with alcohol-associated liver disease. Furthermore, a survey by the AASLD Alcohol-Associated Liver Disease Special Interest Group examining hepatology provider knowledge and attitudes toward the identification and treatment of alcohol use disorder revealed that 90% of respondents felt the need for additional training. Substance use disorders beyond alcohol use disorder can impact candidacy for liver transplantation as well as other liver-related outcomes. Given the rising prevalence of alcohol-associated liver disease and high burden of substance use disorders in the United States, arming liver care providers with skills to address addiction among their patients can have a significant clinical and public health impact. The purpose of this course is to provide a focused overview of key addiction medicine topics and how they relate to the care of patients with chronic liver disease.
