Background. We examined the association between parental alcohol use disorders and patterns of alcohol consumption and DSM-IV alcohol use disorders in their offspring in a community-based sample of young adults. Methods. Data are based on baseline and 4-year follow-up data of 2427 respondents aged 14–24 at baseline. Alcohol use and disorders in respondents were assessed using the Munich-Composite-International-Diagnostic-Interview with DSM-IV algorithms. Diagnostic information about parents was… 
The contribution of parental alcohol use disorders and other psychiatric illness to the risk of alcohol use disorders in the offspring.
TLDR
parental AUD was associated with an increased risk of offspring AUD independent of other significant predictors, such as gender, parental social status, and parental psychiatric hospitalization with other diagnoses.
Alcohol and illicit drug dependence among parents: associations with offspring externalizing disorders
TLDR
Both parental alcohol and drug dependence are independently associated with an increased risk for a broad range of externalizing psychopathology among late-adolescent offspring.
Searching for an environmental effect of parental alcoholism on offspring alcohol use disorder: a genetically informed study of children of alcoholics.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the direct causal effect of being exposed to an alcoholic parent on offspring alcohol use disorder is modest at best.
The role of childhood risk factors in initiation of alcohol use and progression to alcohol dependence.
TLDR
Results highlight the role of psychiatric and substance use disorders in progression from first drink to AD, underscore the continuity of risk associated with CD and indicate that (with the exception of CD) different factors play a role in transition to AD than in initiation of alcohol use.
Prevalence and correlates of alcohol and other substance use disorders in young adulthood: A population-based study
TLDR
The cross-sectional analyses suggested that the association between behavioral and affective factors and SUD was only partly accounted for by other correlates, such as early initiation of substance use and parental alcohol problems.
Differential Effects of Maternal and Paternal Alcoholism and Gender on Drinking, Alcohol‐Related Self‐Cognition, and Psychopathology
TLDR
It is suggested that maternal and paternal alcoholism may confer different risks to the offspring, and that risk may vary depending on the gender of the offspring.
Parental Separation and Offspring Alcohol Involvement: Findings from Offspring of Alcoholic and Drug Dependent Twin Fathers.
TLDR
Findings highlight the contribution of both parental separation and paternal substance dependence in predicting timing of offspring alcohol initiation and problems across adolescence into early adulthood.
Parental alcohol use and adolescent school adjustment in the general population: Results from the HUNT study
TLDR
Parental alcohol abuse is an independent risk factor for attention and conduct problems at school, and some of the risk associated with mothers' drinking is likely to be mediated by adolescent mental distress.
Risk of Mental Disorders in Children of Parents with Alcohol or Heroin Dependence: A Controlled High-Risk Study
TLDR
The results emphasize the need for prompt identification and treatment of these children and highlight the need to pay clinical attention not only to the patient, but also to the co-parent in order to optimize prevention in offspring.

Patterns of Use and Their Relationship to DSM-IV Abuse and Dependence of Alcohol among Adolescents and Young Adults
TLDR
There is however only a moderate association between average number of standard drinks consumed with the risk of developing abuse and dependence, and in light of the substantial rates among adolescents and young adults the validity of DSM-IV alcohol disorder criteria is discussed.
Prevalence of mental illnesses in adult offspring of alcoholic mothers.
Co-morbidity and familial aggregation of alcoholism and anxiety disorders.
TLDR
The finding that the onset of social phobia tended to precede that of alcoholism, when taken together with the independence of familial aggregation of socialphobia and alcoholism support a self-medication hypothesis as the explanation for the co-occurrence of social Phobia and Alcoholism.
Alcohol consumption in high school adolescents: frequency of use and dimensional structure of associated problems.
TLDR
Boys in general had greater usual frequency and quantity of alcohol consumption than girls and began drinking at an earlier age; girls with a diagnosis of alcohol abuse/dependence had a significantly earlier mean age of alcohol disorder onset and were more likely to have a relapse ofalcohol disorder.
Serious alcohol and drug problems among adolescents with a family history of alcoholism.
TLDR
It was illustrated that FH+ females were as likely as FH- males to report a serious problem and that Fh+ families reported a higher rate of having more than one troubled offspring.
Parent and sibling influences on adolescent alcohol use and misuse: evidence from a U.S. adoption cohort.
TLDR
Findings suggest that adolescent alcohol use is affected minimally by the environmental consequences of parent problem drinking and family functioning, but substantially by sibling environmental effects.
Alcohol use disorder among adolescents: impact of paternal alcoholism on drinking behavior, drinking motivation, and consequences.
TLDR
There is no strong or pervasive effect of paternal AUD on adolescent offspring's AUD characteristics, and adolescents with AUD differed from adolescents without AUD on numerous variables pertaining to drinking behavior, history, and consequences.
Characteristics of children of alcoholics: putative risk factors, substance use and abuse, and psychopathology.
TLDR
There were few Gender X Family History interactions; the effects of family history of alcoholism were similar for men and women and when gender effects were found, they showed greater family history effects for women.
Psychiatric disorders in adult children of alcoholics: data from the Epidemiologic Catchment Area project.
TLDR
Differences in the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in individuals who did or did not have alcoholic parents from the Piedmont of North Carolina are examined to add to a literature based mainly on descriptive material or studies of smaller samples.
Genetic and environmental contributions to alcohol abuse and dependence in a population-based sample of male twins.
TLDR
In this first population-based study of male twins from the United States, it was found that genetic factors played a major role in the development of alcoholism among males, with similar influence for alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence.
