F TWIN, AND adoption studies have convincingly demonstrated that genes play an important role in the development of alcohol dependence, accounting for approximately 50–60% of the population variance (McGue, 1999). Additionally, patterns of alcohol use seem to be under genetic influence. Twin studies have demonstrated that dimensions of alcohol use, such as quantity of alcohol consumed on a typical drinking occasion, frequency of use, and frequency of intoxication, and alcohol metabolism… CONTINUE READING
