The COGA (the Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism) states that the child of a drink dependent parent is 4 to 9 times more likely to develop the same problem.

Another study suggests that 95% of alcoholics had or have a close family member with a drink problem. % of sons and daughters of alcoholics become drink dependent.

The Genetics of Alcoholism The researchers used a questionnaire completed by participants to differentiate problem drinking from causal alcohol consumption, an important distinction in this study.

Researchers were able create a score for alcohol use, relying on an Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT) that measures a broad spectrum of alcohol consumption. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) often seems to run in families, and we may hear about scientific studies of an “alcoholism gene.” Genetics certainly influence our likelihood of developing AUD, but the story isn’t so simple.

Research shows that genes are responsible for about half of the risk for AUD. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: x, pages: illustrations ; 25 cm. Contents: 1. The Genetic Epidemiology of Alcoholism / Victor M. Hesselbrock Genetic Determinants of Alcoholic Subtypes / Michie N.

Genetic factors account for more than 50% of the variance in alcoholism liability. Susceptibility loci for alcoholism include both alcohol-specific genes acting either at the pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic levels, as well as loci moderating neuronal pathways such as reward, behavioral control and stress resiliency, that are involved in several psychiatric by: Excessive consumption of alcohol can have serious physical, psychological and social implications.
