As long as I have been involved with the issue of alcohol, both as a drinker and a clinician, the issue of self reporting has always been a constant. My time being over 60 years, I have NEVER had a individual report their usage in a manner that held up over time in treatment. As trust and confidence is developed the self-reporting changes dramatically. My "estimate" of AUD in the adult population of the U.S. would be closer to 20% and may very well be higher.
