Abstract: This is a comparative study of alcohol dependence in Chinese and Indian patients admitted to a hospital in Singapore. There were 46 patients - 21 Chinese and 35 Indians. In both ethnic groups there was a preponderance of male over female patients. There was no significant difference in the mean ages of the two groups but Indian patients started drinking at an earlier age and more of them had a family history of alcohol problems. Comparing the severity of alcohol dependence, Indian patients scored higher on the SADQ but no patients scored above 30 points.
