ABSTRACT

Background: Alcohol consumption affects communities in every sector of the world which makes a global issue among manhood. Worldwide one in three people (32.5%) consume alcohol, which is almost equivalent to 2.4 billion people, including 62.5% of men (1.5billion men) and 37.5% of women (0.9billion women). Objectives: The main objective of the study was to assess the quality of life and severity among alcoholic patients. Materials and Methods: Study was carried out at Psychiatry department, Mysore Medical College & Research Institute and K R Hospital, Mysore, India, from November 2017 to April 2018. A total of 120 patients were enrolled in the study as per inclusion and exclusion criteria. Patient‟s demographic data were collected by using patient data collection form and severity was assessed by using Severity Of Alcohol Dependence Questionnaire (SADQ). The quality of life was assessed by using WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire. The domains associated with the quality of life were identified and correlated with multiple factors. Result: Majority of the patients were in the age group of 35-44 years. 59.2% (71 patients) observed with severe alcohol dependence during the study period. From the QOL assessment the „environmental score‟ shows higher QOL. Conclusion: The study was conducted to enhance the overall quality of life among alcoholic individuals. A decline in alcohol consumption can be obtained by giving education and awareness about the disorder in the population.

Keywords: Alcohol use disorder(AUD), Quality of life(QOL), SADQ.
