The Need for Longitudinal Studies on Co-occurring Alcohol Use and Anxiety Disorders among Older Adults

The Need for Longitudinal Studies on Co-occurring Alcohol Use and Anxiety Disorders among Older Adults

  • 15

Co-occurring alcohol use and anxiety disorders is common in older adults and contributes to poor health outcomes, higher health care utilization, heightened mortality, and social dysfunction in later life. Although there are several proposed theoretical explanations for the association between drinking and mental health disorders (e.g., the precipitation model, the self-medication model, and the mutual maintenance model), few studies have tested the longitudinal time-dependent relationship between alcohol use and anxiety disorders in later life, in part, because longitudinal studies are limited. Better understanding of the temporal sequence of the relationship between alcohol use and anxiety disorders will have implications for improving prevention and treatment programs for at-risk drinking and anxiety in the older population.
