Data suggests men misusing pharmaceuticals and alcohol more than women

Date posted: 20 June 2016

The Association of Alcohol and Other Drug Agencies NT (AADANT) have warned that men are far more likely to place themselves at risk of alcohol-related harm than women: two thirds of hospitalisations related to alcohol misuse, according to AADANT, are male hospitalisations.

The misuse of pharmaceutical medications too, is a concern among men. Whilst pharmaceutical misuse has been increasing for both genders over the past few years, a more recent increase has been far more significant among men over the age of thirty, in particular.

Data was sourced from Druginfo by AADANT for this health update. For more information, please see the links below.
