Mortality risks in alcoholism and effects of abstinence and addiction treatment.
The mortality rate from alcoholism and related comorbidities is high.
Studies show multiple causes of premature death from alcoholism.
Several studies showed that abstinence had a positive effect on the overall survival of alcoholics.
Alcoholics who abstained from alcohol, particularly continuously, showed reduced mortality rates and increased years of longevity than alcoholics who relapsed to alcohol consumption.
The sources of the findings tend to be derived from treatment populations, in which abstinence is expected to occur in higher rates than in the general population.
