Aims: The risk for harmful alcohol use increases following traumatic events and hazardous drinking is thought to be a negative coping mechanism for mental health symptoms associated with the event. Few studies have investigated alcohol use problems following disasters in low- and middle-income countries. This study assessed the prevalence of hazardous alcohol use and rates of co-morbidity with depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among 513 adults affected by the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal.
