Armenia http://moh.am/?section=static_pages/index&id=625&subID=824,29.
Data collected annually, reference period: 31 December.
The reduction in number of new cases in 2014 is due to reduced use of mental services and also
migration of population.

Deviation from the definition: Data on new cases does not exist. Data contains the number of
patients with alcoholic psychosis (ICD-9: 291; ICD-10: F10) discharged from hospital. The number of
discharges includes deaths in hospitals, but excludes same-day separations and transfers to other
care units within the same institutions.
Break in time series: Up to and including the reporting year 2002, data only include discharges in
general hospitals and mental health hospitals. From reporting year 2003, data include additionally
discharges in preventive and rehabilitative hospitals, however discharges of these institutions with
less than 100 beds are not included. The years before 2003 are therefore not comparable to the
following years.
From the reporting year 2000, for the first time, data have been collected according to ICD-10.

Kazakhstan
Sharp increase in the number of cases of alcoholic psychosis is caused by the transition to ICD-10.
Before 1997 only alcoholic psychosis (ICD-9 code 291) was included in the reporting forms, while
non-dependent abuse of alcohol (code 305) was not included. Since 1997 both mental and behavioural
disorders due to the use of alcohol are reported (ICD-10 code F10).
Latvia
Note: The data in 1994-1995 is very high and this is probably due to the political and economic
changes which took place in the early nineties. At this time there was not strict legislation or
tight control against production and purchase of illegal alcohol in Latvia. Therefore, the incidence
of alcoholic psychosis increased in 1994-1995.
