We studied quantitative variability of chromosomal Q-heterochromatin regions (Q-HRs) in alcoholics and drug addicts in various racial and ethnic groups. It was found that in the genome of alcoholics the amount of chromosomal Q-HRs is significantly lower than in control samples and drug addicts, whereas the latter have the greatest number of chromosomal Q-HRs.
