Dr Pavithra H, Dr Siddharth Shetty

Background Psychiatric comorbidity appears to be a rule rather than the exception for treatment of patients with alcohol dependence syndrome, with concurrent PD among the most prevalent diagnosis In clinical settings, the rates of concurrent PDs among patients with alcohol dependence syndrome range from 22- 78 % with estimates around 60 %. Prevalence rates for PDs in patients with alcohol dependence are consistently higher than the estimated 9-16 % PD lifetime rates in the general population Aim To assess frequency of personality traits in men with alcohol dependence syndrome. To assess the personality traits more commonly associated with alcohol dependence syndrome Methodology A consecutive sample of 95 patients meeting inclusion and exclusion criteria admitted in family/de-addiction ward were included in the study. Details of Socio-demographic status were enquired into. IPDE screening was used to assess the personality traits in both the groups, once the patient had completed detoxification treatment and was clinically out of delirium. Results The results were obtained using statistical methods chi square test and percentage frequency. Paranoid (66.7 %), schizoid (75.6 %), impulsive (26.7 %), borderline (17.8 %) and histrionic traits (44.4 %) were found to be statistically significant. Conclusion Study implies the need for assessing personality disorders in alcohol dependence patients as many have atleast one personality disorder. It will help in developing treatment patterns in these patients and also help in relapse prevention
