Vestnik VGMU. 2019;18(4):81-90.

The analysis of character accentuations and personal characteristics associated with them, factors of school anxiety and aggression that affect the development of disorders caused by alcohol use in adolescent girls at the age of 14-18 years from the Republic of Belarus has been made. According to the results of the study, it has been determined that the most relevant risk factors for the development of harmful consequences of alcohol use in female adolescents are astheno-neurotic and schizoid types of personal accentuation, high levels of aggression and school anxiety. On the basis of the data obtained a prognostic model of risk factors for the development of disorders due to alcohol use in this socio-demographic group has been worked out.
The results of the study served as a basis for the elaboration of a treatment method for female adolescents whose use of alcohol leads to harmful sequelae. Clinical efficacy of this method has already been proved.
Key words: alcohol, adolescent girls, risk factors, method of treatment of alcohol use with harmful consequences.
