Alcoholism in Teens-adolescence

In adolescence mainly completion of intellectual development, while concurrently-cascaded relations between ideational and affective sphere is not yet established. There are immaturity and the imbalance of the main features of the personality and character, high emotional excitement. Teenagers are looking for your own reference models of behavior, by the authority of your peers. Hence the tendency how to emancipation and to rapprochement with peers (Licko, 1977). Puberty leads to increased sexual and other forms of drives. All these circumstances as would create preconditions for the emergence of teenage different variants of deviant behaviour. One such option is the systematic alcoholism, leading to alcoholism.
Early alcoholism is more often seen in troubled teenagers, consisting on the account in inspection on Affairs of minors, students auxiliary schools and vocational schools.
At the initial stage of formation of the disease booze, as a rule, group, and a state of intoxication deep enough. Memory impairment by type of palimpsests rarely detected. It is believed that on average early alcoholism is formed by 3 times faster. According to centuries Makarova (1981), early alcohol abuse often occurs in patients with residual organic insufficiency (with residual effects of organic lesions of the Central nervous system in combination with intellectual disabilities: hypertime unstable in conjunction with the pedagogical neglect; pubertal crisis (the critical period of development during adolescence) in combination with the conflict relations in the family; pubertal crisis in combination with the type of care.
It is established that alcohol abuse in teenage and youth aged formed the faster, the younger the patient. The formation of the disease coincides with the formation of the personality. In such patients, as a rule, there is no healthy personal rod, originally formed as "alcoholic personality". Patients poorly oriented as in questions of personal esteem and disease. There are pronounced and formidable non-critical in respect of the main symptoms of alcoholism and consequences of the systematic use of alcohol. Symptoms of alcoholism unstable and polymorphic. Form of alcohol consumption are subject to considerable variation. In the structure of alcohol intoxication in patients meet diverse manifestations, frequent severe cases of intoxication and criminal behaviour in intoxication. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome formed in adolescents is not up to the end and short term, but the habit hung over can be based on copying the behavior of drinking companions, and not upon its own internal desire to hung over.
On the II stage of the disease, usually formed binges. Develops rapidly tapering premorbid personality traits and personality changes alcohol type, characterized by numerous violations of social adaptation: persons of young age, the sick with alcoholism, are chronically conflict relations with relatives, drop out, are not held at work. They often fall into antisocial companies are committing illegal actions, and suicidal behaviors (suicide attempt).
At the same time possible and overdiagnosis of teenage alcoholism. This is due to the fact that the organism of teenagers is not yet ripe, so genuine alcohol dependence as such may not develop. Teenage body is not always able to adjust to pathological alcohol homeostasis". In this regard, sometimes instead of "early alcoholism" more than justified the use of the term "malignant alcoholism".
