Abstract

The phenomenon of dependence has grown into a problem of epidemic proportions. Present throughout the Western world, it is an emergency not only in health terms, but also in social and political terms, and one that, to be overcome, will require common endeavour. In the whole scenario of substance dependence, alcohol abuse, both alone and in combination with other substance abuse, certainly plays a prominent role. Alcohol abuse is today the leading cause of mortality and morbidity, both through its acute effects (intoxication, accidents at work and on the roads) and its chronic effects, which lead to the development of pathologies involving practically all the districts of the organism.
