Abstract

A sample of 82 (41 men 41 women) DSM IV alcohol-dependent inpatients admitted for detoxification was studied at baseline and followed-up 12 weeks thereafter. The following questionnaires were administered 4-5 days after admission for detoxification: Sociodemographic information, Severity of AlcoholDependence Questionnaire (SADQ), Alcohol Problems Questionnaire (APQ), Rotterdam Symptoms Checklist (RSCL), Life Situation Survey (LSS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), General Health Questionnaire (GHQ 12), and Nottingham Health Profile (NHP). All indices other than socio-demographic data, the SADQ, and APQ were administered at 12-week follow-up. After controlling for confounding factors at baseline, women were more likely to be in a higher social class, prescribed antidepressants during the previous 12 months, drinkfewer units of alcohol in a typical week, and have a higher level of psychiatric caseness scores (GHQ-12). A total of 80 subjects (97%) were successfully followed-up. Difference between gender did not significantly impact upon any of the 12-week outcome measures. There was no significant differencein the study relapse rates or time taken to relapse between men and women. The only significant total sample change was a reduction in the amount of alcohol consumed in a typical week. This was significantly related to changes in the following Quality of Life (QoL) measures,NHP emotional reaction sub-scores, LSS, and BDI scores. 2000 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved.
