Study: Social Factors among older drinkers

Sonntag 31. Januar 2010 von htm

Among older drinkers, social factors can both predict and sustain alcohol misuse.
Social factors have consistently been implicated as a cause of vulnerability to alcohol use and abuse. The reverse is also true, in that individuals who engage in excessive drinking may alter their social context. New research on drinking among older adults has found that older adults who have more money, engage in more social activities, and whose friends approve more of drinking are more likely to engage in excessive or high-risk drinking.
