Abstract

Adolescent patients qualifying for a DSM-III-R diagnosis of alcohol use disorder were studied to determine whether a multidimensional schema could classify subjects into sub-groups. The Drug Use Screening Inventory was administered to 151 subjects. To test the concurrent validity of the sub-types, subjects also received a structured diagnostic psychiatric evaluation along with measures of personality, academic achievement, and drinking behavior. Two clusters were identified for each gender. Differences between clusters were reflected primarily on indicators of severity of disorder. Young women were more inclined toward affective disturbances, whereas conduct disorder was the most frequent disorder in young men. This study underscores the heterogeneity of the adolescent population qualifying for a diagnosis of alcohol use disorder. The differential pattern of alcohol involvement and comorbid psychopathology within clusters and between genders demonstrates the need for interventions tailored to specific clinical presentation.
