Study examined the relationship between alcohol abuse history and (1) depression and acceptance of disability and (2) the occurrence of pressure sores during the first 3 years following spinal cord injury (SCI). One hundred seventy-five people completed the Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (MAST), the Inventory to Diagnose Depression (IDD), and the Acceptance of Disability Scale on admission to an inpatient rehabilitation program. One hundred five participants were evaluated for pressure sores. Results indicate that alcohol abuse was not associated with depression or disability acceptance. Severe alcohol abuse history was associated with pressure sores over the 3 years.
