Is there a genetic risk for alcoholism?

Yes. Studies show that close relatives of individuals with an alcohol disorder are at three to four times greater risk for severe alcohol problems. The rate of alcohol problems increases with the number of alcoholic relatives, the severity of their illness, and the closeness of their genetic relationship to an individual.
