Alcoholic Brain Gets Better After Abstinence
In another case where common sense is now bolstered by the science,
researchers have determined that the brains of those who suffer
alcoholism have positive, measurable increases in brain capacity.
The study showed that within a few day's worth of abstinence, an
increase in brain mass was already demonstrated. Structural,
metabolic, and functional gains were all present in the findings. For
those who suffer from alcoholism, the research now demonstrates solid
evidence that the brain can recuperate from addiction.
