Alcohol abuse is a common problem in Türkiye. In order to address the problem, a retrospective analysis of 700 alcohol dependent patients presenting over a period of 6 years to a university hospital in Ankara was undertaken. Results showed that most of the subjects were within the ages 30-39, the married subjects representing the largest group. Age at onset of alcohol consumption was low. Although Islamic religion strongly disapproves alcohol use, it is ineffective in preventing its consumption.

Keywords: Alcohol dependence, Islamic religion, demographic characteristics.
