The western societies have a rapidly aging population and an increasing number of elderly with alcohol use disorders. The purpose of the Elderly study is to develop and test an outpatient treatment program for people with an alcohol use disorders. The presentation will show the characteristics of the Danish population in the Elderly-study.
Methods
The study is a randomized controlled study and has so far enrolled 716 participants from Germany, USA, and Denmark and 341 are from Denmark. Participants are 60+ years old and fulfil the DSM-5 criteria for alcohol use disorder. The exclusions criteria are severe dementia, psychosis; illegal drug use, severe depression, bipolar disorder, suicidal thoughts or behaviour, and having received treatment for the last 30 days for their alcohol use disorder. All participants are examined at baseline, and at four follow up points by the means of structured interviews.
Results
The presentation will include baseline characteristics of the Danish participants including demographics, expectations to treatment and the history of drinking in the last 90 days before baseline.
Discussion/Conclusion
The data will present information about the profile of 60+ year’s individuals seeking treatment for alcohol use disorder, and thereby provide knowledge about which characteristics that may be important when planning treatment for this age group.
