Family violence and Asian drinkers.
This is a study of 70 consecutive referrals to the Department of Psychological Medicine, National University Hospital, for treatment of drinking problems.
There were 31 Chinese and 39 Indian drinkers, with 63 males and 7 females.
Family violence with physical abuse occurred in 21 cases (30%). One in three wives of drinkers had been physically abused, but no children were victims.
Drinkers with family violence were generally younger and more severely dependent on alcohol than the non-violent drinkers.
