“Stress Reactivity as a Determinant in Co-occurring Alcohol Use and Anxiety Disorder: Diagnosis and Alcohol Use Outcomes”
Alcohol dependence is among the most common and costly public health problems affecting the nation. Among individuals with alcohol use disorder (AUD), those with (vs. without) a co-occurring anxiety disorder (AnxD) are as much as twice as likely to relapse in the months following AUD treatment. Dysregulation of biological stress-mood systems predict and correlate with AUD relapse and AnxD symptomatology. In contrast, stress system re-regulation correlates with improved AUD treatment outcomes but has not been examined with respect to AUD recovery and relapse in co-occurring AUD+AnxD.
