Men with antisocial personality have a higher prevalence of alcoholism than men without. This relationship was examined in a narcotic-dependent sample, and it was found that narcotic-dependent men with antisocial personality had a rate of alcoholism comparable to that of narcotic-dependent men without antisocial personality. The methodological and clinical explanations for this finding are discussed along with the neurophysiological implications.
- Antisocial personality
- narcotic dependence
