Brief Summary:
This study is an assessment of the long-term effect of oxytocin nasal spray on alcohol withdrawal and dependence in adults admitted for detoxification of alcohol after 60 days and 1 year. It is a follow-up study of a placebo-controlled randomized controlled study where subjects used oxytocin nasal spray during acute withdrawal and the following 4 weeks in an outpatient setting. Half of the participants have received oxytocin nasal spray, the other half placebo nasal spray (NCT02903251). (added March 2019: 24 patients were available for 1-year follow-up)
