Adults with mild to moderate depression exhibit more alcohol related problems compared to the general adult population: a cross sectional study.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Alcohol use has been shown to interfere with treatment for depression, but consumption habits are not routinely screened in primary care. To date, few studies have compared the alcohol consumption habits of patients with depression to the general population. The purpose of this study was to compare alcohol habits in adults diagnosed with depression in primary care to the general adult population in Sweden.
