AIMS While psychiatric symptoms are common in the general population and even more prevalent in alcoholics, their clinical implications are not clear. The goal of this study was to establish the life-time rates of several independent and concurrent mood and anxiety disorders in alcoholics, controls and their relatives. DESIGN Structured interviews were administered to alcoholics entering treatment, their relatives, and controls. SETTING The study was carried out in six different centers in… 

Tables from this paper

Comparison of induced and independent major depressive disorders in 2,945 alcoholics.
TLDR
The contention that it is possible to differentiate between what appear to be substance-induced and independent depressive episodes in alcoholics might be important for establishing prognosis and optimal treatment is supported.
The impact of comorbid anxiety and depression on alcohol treatment outcomes.
TLDR
This study examines the impact of comorbid Diagnostic and Statistical Manual version IV (DSM-IV) anxiety and/or depression on out-patient treatment for alcohol problems and determines the most appropriate model of care for alcohol treatment seekers withComorbid DSM-IV anxiety and-or depression.
A comparison of alcohol-induced and independent depression in alcoholics with histories of suicide attempts.
TLDR
Comparisons reveal that alcohol-dependent individuals with a history of suicide attempts and independent depression had a higher number of suicide Attempts, were less likely to have been drinking during their most severe attempt, and were morelikely to have an independent panic disorder.
Does psychiatric comorbidity in alcohol-dependent patients affect treatment outcome?
TLDR
An overview on prevalence rates in studies with representative cohorts and hospital-based samples and results on gender differences are reported to determine the impact of comorbidity on treatment outcome to contradict the initial hypothesis that comor bid patients have a poorer prognosis with regard to their alcohol dependence.
Comorbidity of select anxiety and affective disorders with alcohol dependence in southwest California Indians.
TLDR
The hypothesis that despite high rates of alcohol dependence, Southwest California Indians do not have higher rates of anxiety and affective disorders or comorbidity of these disorders with alcohol dependence than those reported in large surveys of non-American Indian populations is supported.
The clinical course of alcohol-related problems in alcohol dependent and nonalcohol dependent drinking women and men.
TLDR
Overall, the time course of alcohol-related problems for men and women were more similar than different, and there is little evidence that the natural history of alcohol dependence in women is substantially different than in men.
A family study of alcohol dependence: coaggregation of multiple disorders in relatives of alcohol-dependent probands.
TLDR
The aggregation of antisocial personality disorder, drug dependence, anxiety disorders, and mood disorders suggests common mechanisms for these disorders and alcohol dependence within some families and new phenotypes for molecular genetic studies and alternative strategies for studying the heterogeneity of alcohol dependence are suggested.
Comparison of 3190 alcohol-dependent individuals with and without suicide attempts.
TLDR
The hypothesis that alcohol-dependent individuals with a history of suicide attempts are more severely impaired is supported and Screening and subsequent treatment of alcohol use disorder, psychiatric comorbidity, and substance use disorders among alcoholics may be crucial in preventing suicide attempts and completions.
Persistent cognitive deficits in community-treated alcoholic men and women volunteering for research: limited contribution from psychiatric comorbidity.
TLDR
This finding suggests that, in this sample, poorer cognitive performance was more a function of alcoholism per se than nonalcoholic comorbidity, and did not necessarily compound poor cognitive test performance associated with chronic alcohol misuse.

The prevalence of major anxiety disorders in relatives of alcohol dependent men and women.
TLDR
The data do not indicate an exceptionally high rate of anxiety disorders among close relatives of alcoholics, and results do not support evidence of a common genotype for the two disorders.
Comparison of induced and independent major depressive disorders in 2,945 alcoholics.
TLDR
The contention that it is possible to differentiate between what appear to be substance-induced and independent depressive episodes in alcoholics might be important for establishing prognosis and optimal treatment is supported.
The prevalence of psychiatric disorders in patients with alcohol and other drug problems.
TLDR
The lifetime and current prevalence of mental disorders in 501 patients seeking assistance with alcohol and other drug problems at an addiction research and treatment facility and computer diagnoses were generated according to DSM-III criteria.
Alcohol dependence and anxiety disorders: what is the relationship?
TLDR
The available data, while imperfect, do not prove a close relationship between life-long anxiety disorders and alcohol dependence, and prospective studies of children of alcoholics and individuals from the general population do not indicate a high rate of anxiety disorders preceding alcohol dependence.
Diagnosis of Depression in Alcohol Dependence: Changes in Prevalence with Drinking Status
TLDR
It is suggested that depression is largely associated with the episode of drinking which led to admission in patients who are dependent on alcohol and may be due to the effect of chronic alcohol intoxication.
The history of anxiety symptoms among 171 primary alcoholics.
TLDR
The histories of treatment by mental health workers or in psychiatric facilities taken together with the symptom picture generated from patient and resource person interviews do not indicate an elevated incidence of either panic disorder or generalized anxiety that is independent of heavy drinking.
Alcoholism in manic-depressive (bipolar) illness: familial illness, course of illness, and the primary-secondary distinction.
TLDR
The study supports the idea that not all alcoholism is primary with a corresponding familial diathesis, and that alcoholism associated with bipolar disorder is often a secondary complication.
The stability of coexisting psychiatric syndromes in alcoholic men after one year.
TLDR
It is suggested that the endorsement of multiple psychiatric symptoms is not due simply to the acute emotional and physical distress that often accompanies a recent hospitalization for alcoholism treatment, but for many male alcoholics, the symptom patterns appear to reflect additional psychiatric disorders that are stable over time and a potential target of treatment.
Prognostic effect of the variable course of alcoholism on the 10-year course of depression.
TLDR
Depressed probands who were either never alcoholic or currently nonactive alcoholic had twice the likelihood of recovery from major depressive disorder than did actively alcoholic depressed probands, and the three levels of alcoholism did not differentially predict recurrence ofmajor depressive disorder.
Lifetime and 12-month prevalence of DSM-III-R psychiatric disorders in the United States. Results from the National Comorbidity Survey.
TLDR
The prevalence of psychiatric disorders is greater than previously thought to be the case, and morbidity is more highly concentrated than previously recognized in roughly one sixth of the population who have a history of three or more comorbid disorders.
