A Retrospective Study on the Socio Demographic Details of Patients Presenting with Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome in a Tertiary Care Hospital
Abstract: Alcohol is a socially accepted drug, which means that there is way more accessibility to consume it as opposed to most other addictive substances. But one should not forget that though it is socially acceptable, it can still cause severe deterioration in physical and mental health and also in social relations, hence having severe implications on one?s holistic well being in life. Results: All participants were males with mean age of 39 years (SD = 5.5 years). There seems to be a correlation between alcohol withdrawal syndrome and occupation, level of education, income level, work timing, age, marital status. Discussion: There seems to be an urgent need for intervention in curbing the level of alcohol consumption especially among the less educated and poor sections of society, this can be done through family support, bringing more awareness in the work place of these individuals. The government should not subsidize the sale of alcohol and should invest in alcohol deaddiction and rehabilitation centres.
