Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Alcoholism has been associated with a high prevalence of anxiety and phobic disorders. The authors ascertained the current prevalence of panic disorder and the lifetime prevalence of infrequent panic attacks in 154 male alcoholics in an inpatient alcohol treatment program. Thirteen percent (N = 20) gave a lifetime history of panic attacks and 45% (N = 9) of these had current panic disorder. Panic attacks preceded or coincided with the onset of problem drinking in 50% (N = 9) of the 18 patients with both diagnoses. Only two patients with histories of panic had been previously diagnosed, and none had been treated. Clinical implications of these findings are discussed.
