Alcohol-related brain damage report highlights concerns

March 20th 2014

A report into alcohol-related brain damage (ARBD) should serve as a “wake-up call”, Alcohol Concern Cymru said.

Symptoms include confusion, memory loss and difficulty reasoning as a result of heavy drinking.

The charity is using the report to raise awareness to help develop improvements in prevention and help.
