Hiromi Ariyoshi, Estuko Yamada, Yoshika Suzaki, Naoko Takayama and Megumi Hattori

In this research, alcohol dependence prevention measures were carried out at the Japanese Newspaper Company A. Early detection of drug additions and other lifestyle-related dependencies is necessary, and can be evaluated by a occupational health nurse during the oral history taking portion of the physical exam, in which alcohol and tobacco consumption are compulsory checklist items. Whether a high-intake case may have another existing addiction is an important assessment point. Case 1 of our research illustrated the bias that still exists towards alcohol treatment facilities, Case 2 showed the effectiveness of exercise in anti-dependency treatment, and Case 3 demonstrated the risk of alcohol dependency transitioning into a drug addiction.
