High levels of stress coupled with a sense of loneliness have emerged as contributing factors for growing cases of drug and alcohol addiction among married educated women, a study says. The study conducted between 2005 and 2011, covering 371 women addicts at four de-addiction centres here, says apart from alcohol, anti-depressants and sleeping pills too were found to have been used by the subjects in their struggle to overcome domestic stress and marital discord.
Around 28.8 per cent women covered in the study had academic degrees. The percentage of married women was about 55, she said adding that stress, marital discord and stigma of divorce appeared to be some of the factors leading to addiction.
