Alcohol and intimate partner violence

(p.194) Chapter 22 Alcohol and intimate partner violence

Megan R. Gerber

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the link between alcohol consumption and intimate partner violence (IPV). Alcohol disorders are the most prevalent use disorders among IPV perpetrators. An examination of IPV-related homicides demonstrated alcohol in forensic toxicology data for 70% of suspects. Approximately one-third of IPV incidents involve alcohol use by men who are more often drinking than women. Increase in both number of IPV assaults and severity has been associated with incident drinking by a male perpetrator.
