Is Alcoholism In Women The Last Taboo?

ALCOHOLISM: TREATING THE FAMILY AS A WHOLE

Why could my grandmother be an honors graduate of the University of Michigan and not be allowed to vote until she was in her 30s? As women? Yes, we’ve come a long way. My mother could vote, but not walk up the steps of the Union. I could vote, walk up the Union steps, but not be a cheerleader.

that the use of family therapy is helping to heal the historic rift between mental-health professionals and alcohol-rehabilitation counselors, many of whom have been traditionally skeptical of recovery strategies not based on the precepts of Alcoholics Anonymous. Family therapy isn’t a ”magic bullet” or miraculous cure for alcoholism, said Dr. Peter Steinglass, professor of psychiatry and director of family-therapy training at George Washington University School of Medicine. ”It’s important to establish a cautionary tone,” he said, ”though my own feeling about the use of family therapy is that it’s definitely the wave of the future. All the studies thus far have displayed great enthusiasm for the continued use of family therapy.” Family therapists focus on the emotional life of an entire family, rather than exclusively on one member who may have been labeled ”the patient.” A therapist may treat couples or entire families – from grandchildren to grandparents. Often the therapist seeks to change a family’s pattern of relationships to avoid perpetuating a problem.

Experiments on mice found that those with mutant copies of the Gabrb1 gene preferred drinking diluted alcohol over water, in contrast to those with normal genes. The study, published in the Nature Communications journal, showed that the mice would drink so much alcohol that within one hour they would have trouble controlling their movements. Although some humans drink excessively for a variety of reasons, the findings suggest that a few may be more genetically at risk of alcoholism, researchers said. The scientists, from five UK universities, introduced several random mutations to the genetic code of mice before giving them a free choice between water and diluted alcohol. They found that those with either of two mutations in Gabrb1 chose to consume almost 85 per cent of their daily fluids from the alcohol solution, while healthy mice drank little or no alcohol. Those with the mutation were so keen to obtain the alcohol that they would push a lever to obtain it, even over long periods of time.
