Abstract

The need for interpersonal resources of both female and male patients diagnosed with alcohol dependency was determined, but no differences were found. However, the coefficients of correlation between the need for interpersonal resources, the level of reported drinking, and the number of symptoms are gender related. For women, the coefficients of correlation are positive and generally significant, whereas for men the coefficients tended to be lower and non-significant. The findings may suggest that, while problem drinking among women is significantly associated with the need for love and respect (status), especially in the family, this is not the case for men.
