Aim: Alcohol is one of the most consumed substances worldwide, and the prevalence of alcohol use disorder is increasing. Intolerance of uncertainty has been proved to be one of the causes of alcohol intake. This study aimed to investigate whether the levels of uncertainty intolerance of people with alcohol use disorder differed from the healthy population.
Method: 53 patients with alcohol use disorders and 55 healthy controls were included in the study. Sociodemographic data form and Intolerance of Uncertainty Scale were given to participants.
Results: Patients with alcohol use disorder were found to have a higher intolerance of uncertainty than healthy controls.
Conclusion: Since alcohol use can play a role as a coping method in people with intolerance of uncertainty, this should be considered in treating alcohol use disorder.
