A study conducted jointly by the University of Kansas and the Institute of Preventative Medicine in Copenhagen concludes that it may be possible to definitively identify factors that lead to alcoholism later in life.
Dagens Medicin, a Danish medical journal states that boys who have an alcoholic father, who experienced difficulties during birth and who have been diagnosed with ADHD as a child have a high probability of developing alcohol dependence and addiction as an adult.
“Many of the factors cited have been individually studied and have been shown to contribute to alcoholism later in life,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center . “It’s not surprising that combining those risk factors would result in an even greater chance of alcohol dependence. Knowing these factors for alcoholism can help those who are at risk to become more aware that their actions and reactions in certain situations may help them avoid the trap of using alcohol as a means to cope with life.”
Research into various causes of alcoholism are ongoing within the field of addiction and, one day, may offer universal prevention to those suffering with alcohol dependence. Until then, Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center can assist you or a loved one onto the journey to recovery and living a life of sobriety.
