Alkoholschäden

  • M. Oehmichen

Zusammenfassung

Bezogen auf die Bundesrepublik Deutschland geht man von 4,5 Millionen Alkoholabhängigen und ca. 40000 Alkoholtoten im Jahr aus (Petersson et al. 1982; Oehmichen et al. 1992). Werden nur Personen ab dem 16. Lebensjahr berücksichtigt, so muss von 2–7% Alkoholikern bzw. von 16–47% starken Alkoholkonsumenten ausgegangen werden, im Vergleich zu 6–14% Abstinenten bzw. „fast“ Abstinenten (Trojan 1980). Überwiegend handelt es sich um Männer im Alter zwischen 30 und 49 Jahren (Feuerlein u. Küfner 1977).
