Aims To investigate the prevalence and correlates of recovery from Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM–IV) alcohol dependence by examining the past-year status of individuals who met the criteria for prior-to-past-year (PPY) dependence. Design Cross-sectional, retrospective survey of a nationally representative sample of U.S. adults age 18 and older (first wave of a planned longitudinal survey). Methods This analysis is based on data from the 2001–2002…

Rates and correlates of relapse among individuals in remission from DSM-IV alcohol dependence: a 3-year follow-up.
TLDR
Abstinence represents the most stable form of remission for most recovering alcoholics, and study findings highlight the need for better approaches to maintaining recovery among young adults in remission from alcohol dependence, who are at particularly high risk of relapse.
Maturing out of alcohol dependence: the impact of transitional life events.
TLDR
Transitional life events demonstrate many effects on recovery, including both direct effects consistent with role socialization and associations more reflective of selectivity than causation, and taken as a whole, these events appear to contribute to the high rates of recovery from alcohol dependence that have been observed even in the absence of treatment.
Estimating the effect of help-seeking on achieving recovery from alcohol dependence.
TLDR
Individuals who participated in 12-Step programs in addition to formal treatment had almost twice the chance of recovery and more than more than twice the chances of AR compared with those who received formal treatment alone.
Correlates of recovery from alcohol dependence: a prospective study over a 3-year follow-up interval.
TLDR
Compared correlates of recovery based on a 3-year prospective design with those based on cross-sectional analyses of data from the same source generally supported results from prior pseudo-prospective survival analyses with time-dependent covariates but differed in many ways from cross-section analyses of Wave 1 NESARC data.
Natural outcome of cannabis use disorder: a 3-year longitudinal follow-up.
TLDR
A substantial level of remission from cannabis use disorders (CUDs), including non-abstinent remission, suggests that the nature of CUDs may be more unstable than reported previously.
Epidemiology of DSM-5 Alcohol Use Disorder: Results From the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions III.
TLDR
The NESARC-III data indicate an urgent need to educate the public and policy makers about AUD and its treatment alternatives, to destigmatize the disorder, and to encourage those who cannot reduce their alcohol consumption on their own, despite substantial harm to themselves and others, to seek treatment.
Alcohol abuse and dependence criteria as predictors of a chronic course of alcohol use disorders in the general population.
TLDR
With the exception of tolerance, all DSM-IV dependence criteria are useful in predicting the course of AUD in the general population.
Prevalence and Correlates of Past-Year Recovery From DSM-5 Alcohol Use Disorder: Results From National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions-III.
TLDR
Odds of achieving AR or NAR relative to persistent AUD were generally lower among non-Hispanic Blacks and those with higher education, greater among women and married individuals, and lower among illicit drug users and individuals with histories of a personality disorder or mood/anxiety disorder.
The three year course of alcohol use disorders in the general population: DSM-IV, ICD-10 and the Craving Withdrawal Model.
TLDR
The conviction that addiction is a chronic relapsing disease may apply to treatment-seeking alcoholics, but the data show a far more favourable course of alcohol use disorders in the general population.

Family history of alcoholism and gender: their combined effects on DSM-IV alcohol dependence and major depression.
TLDR
These findings supported prior research showing more familial alcoholism among persons with comorbid dependence and depression than among those with dependence alone, and were supportive of the proposed distinction between pure depression and depressive-spectrum disease.
The dimensionality of alcohol abuse and dependence: factor analysis of DSM-III-R and proposed DSM-IV criteria in the 1988 National Health Interview Survey.
TLDR
Factor analyses to assess the dimensions underlying the DSM-III-R and DSM-IV dependence and abuse criteria as operationalized in the NHIS88 show that a two-dimensional model is required.

TLDR
Treatment studies may not be generalizable to alcoholics who do not seek treatment, and treatment history modified the associations between past-year status and race, marital and educational status, number of past alcohol problems, and rapidity of onset of dependence and age at onset.
Co-Occurrence of 12-Month Alcohol and Drug Use Disorders and Personality Disorders in the United States
TLDR
National data on sex differences in the co-occurrence of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM–IV) alcohol and drug use disorders and 7 of the 10 DSM–IV PDs are presented to highlight the need for further research on the underlying structure and treatment implications of these disorders when comorbid.
Factors influencing remission from alcohol dependence without formal help in a representative population sample.
TLDR
Logistic regression analysis revealed that individuals remitted from alcohol-dependence without formal help reported a higher non-physiological severity of alcohol dependence, less social pressure to quit drinking and more incidents of driving while intoxicated.
Prevalence, correlates, and disability of personality disorders in the United States: results from the national epidemiologic survey on alcohol and related conditions.
TLDR
Personality disorders are prevalent in the general population and are generally highly associated with disability, and the need to develop more effective and targeted prevention and intervention initiatives for personality disorders is highlighted.

TLDR
Differences between dependent and nondependent drinkers who drank comparable amounts suggest that this risk may result from longer and heavier drinking histories before baseline, more severe health problems at baseline,More heavy episodic drinking, and, possibly, differences in beverage preference.
Recovery from alcohol problems with and without treatment: prevalence in two population surveys.
TLDR
These two surveys are among the first to report prevalence rates for recovery from alcohol problems for treated and untreated individuals and for moderation and abstinence outcomes.
