A clinical and follow-up study was conducted in 98 alcohol dependent women to establish the biological, psychological, and social predictors characterizing the rate of development and course of female alcoholism. An integrative approach (clinical-and-psychopathological, clinical-and-follow-up, experimental psychological, and statistical methods) was applied. An adapted standardized multifactorial questionnaire was used to assess the personality profile. The main predictors of the malignant course of female alcoholism were identified. Heredity, adverse microsocial environmental factors, and mental traumas play a crucial role in female alcoholism.
