Drinking and spousal abuse by male US Army soldiers

pousal abuse when neither the perpetrator nor the victim has been drinking, and this is true even when alcohol-use habits are measured years before the event. Thus, there may be some behavioral or social factors that are associated with both drinking and the propensity to abuse a spouse such as impulsivity or aggression and these factors may not dissipate over time. Young men who are heavy drinkers may 'age out' of these drinking behaviors or at least moderate their drinking as they get older, but it is not clear if they will also 'age out' of other factors that may go along with heavy drinking behaviors, such as impulsivity or aggression."

"Many people assume you can't do anything about heavy drinking, but there are clearly studies that show if you can screen and identify people with problem drinking and get them into early treatment then you can significantly reduce the consequences of the drinking, including spousal abuse," added Smith. "Treatment for alcoholism or problem drinking has similar effectiveness to that for other chronic diseases like asthma and diabetes. If people have asthma, they will keep having recurring attacks of asthma no matter how good the treatment is, but treatment reduces the frequency and severity of the attacks. It's the same with people who have diabetes. Treatment for alcoholism does work, and can prevent or reduce the frequency of relapses in many people. However, like most chronic-disease therapies, treatment does not always work 100 percent of the time."
