Abstract

Research involving suicidal alcoholics is scarce despite the frequent presence of suicidal ideation and behavior among alcoholics. Unfortunately, suicidal ideation is a common exclusion criterion from participation in most studies that are relevant to this population. This article addresses identifying, evaluating, and treating people with alcohol abuse or dependence who display suicidal ideation or suicidal behavior. The state of the art is reviewed regarding interventions, including acute stabilization and specific medications for alcoholism and depression with a special focus on the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Appropriate hospitalization, discharge, and family involvement are discussed. Finally, gaps in knowledge are identified with a focus on priorities and directions for future research.
