In many countries suicide attempt has been the target of great concern in the last decade. In the global context, the most important finding when analyzing data is the observation that mean age of individuals who commit suicide is decreasing aggravated to the fact that substance use is intimately related to suicide behaviors. Drinking is strongly associated to suicidal thoughts and in women, this may occur with occasional drinking. Studies, however, do not concur to whether the risk is higher due to abuse or the substance dependence. Data from MACHT (Matching Alcoholism Treatments to Client Heterogeneity, 1997) revealed that suicidal thoughts are more prevalent among alcohol dependents in  treatment.
