Depression on the Rise for Women Prone to Addiction

A new study finds that depression continues to increase with women prone to addiction who are in their 30s and 40s. Researchers from the University of Michigan Health System examined the women’s histories, family life and neighborhood instability on their symptoms of alcoholism, antisocial behavior and depression. The study encompassed a 12 year period including the earlier years of marriage and motherhood.

“Our findings demonstrate the complexity of the factors affecting changes in alcohol problems, antisocial behavior and depression for these women,” said Robert Zucker, Ph. D., a professor of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Michigan Medical School and the director of the University of Michigan Addiction Research Center.
