Abstract

This article presents a unique framework that combines insights from neuroscience with clinical assessment to evaluate individuals who have co-occurring alcohol use disorder, anxiety, and trauma. Through the use of a case study, the authors demonstrate the practical application of this framework and contextualize the relevant neurocircuitry associated with alcohol withdrawal, maladaptive fear and anxiety, and chronic stress. By integrating these perspectives, they provide a comprehensive approach for assessing and treating patients with complex psychiatric histories, particularly those presenting with anxiety symptoms, offering valuable insights for practitioners.
