Prevalence and Correlates of Insomnia in a Polish Sample of Alcohol-Dependent Patients
Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, 04/13/2012
Zhabenko N et al. – More than 60% of alcohol–dependent patients in a Polish sample screened positive for insomnia using a validated scale, a rate similar to those assessed with other scales in other countries. The study also showed that insomnia in alcohol–dependent patients is associated with poor physical health and childhood abuse, similar to the general population. The multifactorial nature of insomnia in alcohol–dependent patients has treatment implications.
