Table 5 Hazard ratios for first drinking occasion during the one-year post-treatment period in proportional hazards analysis (n = 145)

From: The predictive validity of the Drinking-Related Cognitions Scale in alcohol-dependent patients under abstinence-oriented treatment

  Wald chi-square df Hazard ratio (95% CI) P-value
Expectancy and resignation 6.01 1 0.95 (0.92–0.99) a 0.014
Perception of impaired control 11.48 1 0.94 (0.91–0.97) b 0.001
Perception of drinking problems 8.21 1 0.92 (0.88–0.98) c 0.004
Total 11.32 1 0.97 (0.96–0.99) d 0.001
  1. df = degrees of freedom; CI = confidence interval.
  2. Proportional hazards analysis was conducted using the forced entry method, with the first drinking occasion as a dependent variable.
  3. a Adjusted for adjustment factors (age, number of admissions to a psychiatry department, history of finger tremor, employment status, educational history, and history of illegal drug usage or abuse). Hazard ratio refers to a per-point increment in the score for expectancy and resignation.
  4. b Adjusted for adjustment factors in a. Hazard ratio refers to a per-point increment in the score for perception of impaired control.
  5. c Adjusted for adjustment factors in a. Hazard ratio refers to a per-point increment in the score for perception of drinking problems.
  6. d Adjusted for adjustment factors in a. Hazard ratio refers to a per-point increment in the total score.
