    Genetic, environmental, and sociocultural factors are all thought to contribute to alcohol abuse and dependence. The cause for alcohol abuse is not completely understood; biological, societal, psychological, and behavioral theories have been proposed as possible reasons. Studies of twins and of adopted children reveal that there is some genetic link to alcoholism. However, children also learn about and establish attitudes towards drinking by observing parents and peers, suggesting that social factors also play a role.

    Some studies indicate that people who abuse alcohol do not become intoxicated as easily as non-abusers. Some research shows that the brains of alcohol abusers tend to be less sensitive to the effects of the alcohol than non-abusers' brains. Therefore, alcohol abusers need to drink more than the average person in order to become intoxicated, which may lead to the physical problems of dependence.
