Table 4 Results from multinomial logistic regression. Reported reason not to seek treatment was predicted by alcohol use disorders (AUDs) severity (past 12 months), adjusting for age. Odds ratios (OR), respective 95 % confidence intervals (CI) and p-values are displayed

From: Alcohol use disorder severity and reported reasons not to seek treatment: a cross-sectional study in European primary care practices
