Survey of early alcohol  treatment preferences shows higher confidence in face to face meetings. Adult men and women (n = 307), working and living in the area of south west Sweden, answered a web based questionnaire where they graded treatment and caregiver preferences while imagining themselves developing an alcohol problem. Alcohol consumption was measured using AUDIT-C. Face-to-face delivered treatment was preferred over telephone or internet based advice. About 53 percent of the men and women considered treatment given by primary health as poor. Only 7,6 percent would prefer help from a health care centre if they were having alcohol problems. Shame and stigma were considered the main obstacles for both seeking and getting help. Despite the availability of effective treatments for early alcohol problems, many avoid seeking help for their problem. This also applies to socially established people. It is important that the health care recognizes and identifies people with less serious problems and offer them treatment.
