Drug and Alcohol Abuse among the Elderly: Is Being Alone the Key?
Brown, B. Bradford; Chiang, Chi-Pang
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v18 n1 p1-12 1983-84
Compared 21 older clients of drug treatment facilities, 30 older abusers not in treatment, and 155 elderly nonabusers. Analyses suggested that age and gender affect the likelihood of receiving treatment more than the likelihood of being an abuser. Substance abuse appeared more prevalent among single elderly who lived alone. (JAC)
