Most Postdisaster Alcohol Abuse Reflects Preexisting Problem

Donnerstag 14. Oktober 2010 von htm

More than 80 percent of alcohol problems that occur following disasters are among people with a preexisting or ongoing drinking problem, Internal Medicine News reported Oct. 4.
Researchers at the VA North Texas Health Care System examined data from 10 disaster studies and identified nearly 700 survivors who had undergone both pre- and post-disaster alcohol assessments. All subjects had been directly affected by the disaster: More than one-third had been injured, and 20 percent had disaster-related post-traumatic stress disorder. (Source: Join Together, 10/12/10)
