Abstract: The study objective was to analyse the relationships between the severity of the pattern of alcohol consumption and psychopathology levels in alcohol-dependent patients, and compare the changes in psychopathology during treatment related to length of treatment in three different addiction treatment facilities in the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic and Poland. The sample consisted of 380 alcohol-dependent patients (282 men and 98 women) with an average age 44.58 years (+10.48). Out of the total, 212 patients were treated in the rehabilitation centre OLÚP Predná Hora, 117 in the facility Wotuw Krakow, and 51 patients were from the psychiatric hospital Jemnice. Sixty per cent of the patients had at least one other psychiatric diagnosis. The screening tool AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test) and the questionnaire of psychopathology SCL-90 (Symptom Checklist 90), including nine dimensions, were administered to the study respondents. We proved a significant relationship between all scales of the SCL-90 and the final scores of the AUDIT. We found significant differences between the final scores of the SCL-90 at the beginning and the end of the treatment; the most significant decrease of psychopathology occurs in the first six weeks of treatment.
