[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] Purpose: This quasi-experimental study was conducted to validate the effects of the problem drinking management program on drinking reduction, depression, and life satisfaction in elderly with alcohol misuse.

Method: Study participants included a total of 52 elders aged between 60 to 75 years (n=23 for experimental group; n=29 for control group) who had alcohol misuse and were not demented. The data were collected at a community elderly welfare center located in S city during the period of January 5th to February 26th 2010. The main intervention was the problem drinking management program provided to the experimental group twice a week for 4 weeks with 90 minutes per session. A total of 8 consecutive programs were applied to the experimental group. The data were analyzed using SAS 9.1 program.

Results: The experimental group showed a significant decrease in AUDIT scores and the level of depression, and a significant increase in life satisfaction compared to the control group.

Conclusion: The drinking management program may reduce problem drinking behavior and depression, as well as improve life satisfaction among community-dwelling older adults with alcohol misuse, suggesting that the utilization of the program may help older adults live a healthier life.
