We investigated the prevalence and associated factors of alcohol use disorder and depressive disorder and the influence of those diseases on quality of life. 507 adults participated in the study. Using the scores of Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test-Korea (AUDIT-K) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) criteria, the participants were categorized into one of three diagnostic groups: social drinking, harmful drinking and alcohol use disorder. Using scores of Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale (CES-D) scores, we classified individual scoring 16 to 24 as having probable depression and those scoring≥25 as having definite depression. Prevalence of social drinking, harmful drinking and alcohol use disorder were estimated to be 72.0%, 22.1%, 5.9%, respectively. Gender, age, educational level, religion and AUDIT-K score were associated with greater risk of alcohol problem. Mental component score (MCS) of alcohol use disorder was lower than that of social drinking. Prevalence of normal, probable depression, and definite depression were estimated to be 77.5%, 13.0%, 9.5%, respectively. Religion, job, cohabitants and medical insurance state were associated with greater risk of depression. Both physical component score (PCS) and mental component score (MCS) were lower in patients with depressive disorder than normal group. Alcohol use disorder and depressive disorder were very common and may cause poor mental and physical health. More attention should be paid to detection and management of alcohol use disorder and depressive disorder.
