Summary

The SAMBA study aims to assess the safety and cost comparison of the management of outpatient alcohol detoxification, between an advanced nurse protocol on the one hand (experimental group), and a GP-based treatment on the other hand (standard-of-care group).

In the advanced nurse (AN) group, nurses manage alcohol detox using a predefined protocol based on both the Cushman and CIWA-Ar scales. Depending on the Cushman and CIWA-Ar scores, which are calculated at every consultation, advanced nurse can adjust the diazepam dosing. In case of any serious adverse event or uncontrolled withdrawal complication, an addiction specialist stands in back-up and can be appealed to decide whether the outpatient detox can be continued or whether the patient has to be hospitalized. In the GP group, GPs can manage patients as they wish.
