Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Although there are gender differences in alcoholism, the definition of alcoholism is the same for women as it is for men. The American Psychiatric Association (Packard, 1986), the National Council on Alcoholism (Estes, 1982), and the World Health Organization (Kinney and Leaton, 1978) all define alcoholism as a chronic disease manifested by excessive drinking which causes a continuing problem in any area of a person's life including physical and mental health, interpersonal relations, and social and economic functioning.
