Aim: The aim of this position paper is to discuss findings on alcohol-attributable mortality according to consequences for prevention and treatment in Germany. Results: Evidence revealed that participation in specialized alcohol dependence treatment was not associated with longer survival than having not participated and that tobacco consumption should be considered. Conclusions: The conclusion is drawn that a system of support should be realized that fulfills seven prerequisites. These include preventive action and integrated care with proactive contacting of the population and a stronger consideration of tobacco smoking than in the past. Doing so, more life years of those affected may be kept than by the existing focus on treatment of alcohol problems.
