The Unit for Clinical Alcohol Research (UCAR) engages in research relevant for everyday clinical work of alcohol treatment facilities, with the aim to increase treatment efficiency. We collaborate with a large section of alcohol treatment institutions, hospitals and other facilities in contact with individuals, who drink too much. The uniqueness of our research is its proximity of practice, with the inclusion of staff targeted to subsequently implement the results into their everyday treatment practice.
Head of the unit is Director Anette Søgaard Nielsen. The unit was founded in 2013 along with the alcohol research programme RESCueH, which comprises 5 studies - links to the studies are listed below. These studies are near completion, but have been integrated into the treatment of individuals who drink too much. At the same time, new exciting studies have been launched. For instance, the study CRAFT applies to significant others of individuals who drink to much.
