Binge drinking in adolescence may increase risk for anxiety later in life

University of Illinois at Chicago

A growing body of evidence supports the idea that alcohol exposure early in life has lasting effects on the brain and increases the risk of psychological problems in adulthood. Now, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have found that adolescent binge drinking, even if discontinued, increases the risk for anxiety later in life due to abnormal epigenetic programming.

Fourth-year College Students Benefit from Less Permissive Parental Attitudes Toward Alcohol Use

Research Society on Alcoholism

Although parents have an important influence on drinking among students during their first year of college, there is limited research addressing whether parenting later in college has a similar effect. Researchers followed 1,429 students at three large public universities to examine the associations between parents’ permissiveness toward alcohol use and monitoring of students’ behavior and students’ drinking outcomes. Students completed surveys during the fall semesters of their first and fourth years of college. The study used a structural equation model, a form of causal modeling, to examine associations between parental permissiveness of college student alcohol use, parental monitoring of students’ behavior and students’ drinking and alcohol-related consequences at the two time points, controlling for parental modeling of risky drinking, peer norms, sex, and campus.

Genes and Brain Structure in Alcohol Use Disorder

Research Society on Alcoholism

Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a common addictive disease that affects the brain. The risk of developing AUD is due, nearly equally, to environmental and genetic effects. More than 3,000 genes have been linked to AUD or the response to alcohol. Brain imaging studies have revealed alterations in brain structure and function related to AUD. However, few studies have linked genes to brain findings in individuals with an AUD diagnosis.

“Why are women less likely than men to seek alcohol treatment?”

Research Society on Alcoholism

Only a minority of adults with an alcohol use disorder (AUD) seek treatment for it. Although women are more likely than men to seek treatment for most medical or psychiatric disorders, men are more likely to seek alcohol treatment. To understand the basis for differences in alcohol service use, researchers used a national, longitudinal study that included data on treatment utilization, the perceived need for help, and reasons for not seeking help for an AUD. They analyzed data from nearly 2,600 white, African-American, or Hispanic adults with a diagnosis of alcohol abuse or dependence in 2000-2001 who were re-interviewed in 2004-2005.
