  • 1Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Psychiatric Institute, NY 10032.


Eight (32%) of 25 alcoholic women on an inpatient detoxification unit met modified DSM-III criteria for panic disorder, 2 (8%) of 25 met criteria for depressive illness, and 7 (28%) of 25 met criteria for both disorders. These findings replicate the findings of other recent studies and lend preliminary support to the self-medication model of alcoholism.
