Miami, Florida (PRWEB) October 02, 2013 -- As reported by Medical News Today (9/25) in their article titled, Alcohol-related violence dependent on drinking 'context', that through a research study, it was found that alcohol drinking is more likely to cause violence in certain environments or social situations.

Researchers from the Prevention Research Center, California, and Arizona State University analyzed 1,585 couples from over 50 medium-to-large cities across California. The study was published in the journal Addiction.

People were asked to provide information about how much they drank in six different situations. These included:



Parties at another person's home

With friends at home

A quiet evening at home, and

At parks or other public places

After conducting the study it was found that men drinking at parties and bars away from home, and women drinking in parks and public places, were both linked to increased male-to-female partner violence.

Men who drank during quiet evenings at home were linked to increased female-to-male violence.

More drinking with friends at home was associated with a lower level of male-to-female and female-to-male partner violence.

Higher amounts of drinking with friends at home was linked to increased male-to-female and female-to-male partner violence.

The study authors say, "The analyses presented in this paper indicate that both frequency of drinking and excessive drinking in certain contexts are important predictors of context-specific patterns.”
