3  ate-Onset Drinking Problems: Reevaluating L the Evidence The literature on alcohol use across the life course has delved extensively into the idea that a subgroup of older problem drinkers develops problems only as they reach older adulthood. Late-onset older adult problem drinkers have been identified using treatment samples [28–30]. Definitions of what constitutes late vary between 40 and 60 years of age [31], and numbers of individuals who fall into the categories of late versus early onset also vary from approximately 15 % late alcohol problems [32] to nearly a 50/50 ratio [29].

Moreover, the authors did not find evidence of stressrelated drinking in their sample. Earlier studies of so-called late-onset alcohol problems have typically utilized samples of older adults in treatment, relying on self-report of individuals who may have only just recognized that they have a problem with alcohol but who may have previously met criteria for an alcohol use disorder. Alternatively, individuals who enter treatment in older adulthood may be more likely to come from the rare group of individuals who develop an alcohol use disorder late in life.
