As a result, both current and former professional footballers are at risk. Alcohol-related psychiatric assessments need to serially assess severity, risk, social function and manage any comorbid physical or mental health conditions. Following these assessments, a personalised biopsychosocial care plan should be agreed. A sport psychiatrist must understand how alcohol misuse presents within the elite football environment and how patient motivation towards behaviour change is central to recovery.
