More Information

ARBD is the term used to describe a number of serious medical conditions where the function of the brain is impaired as a result of alcohol abuse. These include Wernicke-Korsakoff’s syndrome, alcohol related dementia, and amnesic syndrome.

Common symptoms include short-term memory loss, confusion, problems with co-ordination, attention, planning and judgement. Changes in personality and behaviour are also common.

Unlike many other conditions, the effects of ARBD can be reversed if patients receive the right treatment and support. In order for patients to have the best chance of making a full recovery, however, this treatment has to be given within two years of their diagnosis. After this short window of opportunity, any improvement is likely to be small.
