Alcohol related brain damage (ARBD) is a relatively new term that describes a range of brain conditions linked to long-term heavy drinking. Quite often the person who is drinking will not be aware of any problems with their mental functions, but friends and family members may notice changes. Symptoms may differ greatly but are likely to include confusion, memory loss and difficulty in understanding and learning new information. The person with ARBD may also show different personality traits – finding it difficult to control impulses, for example, or behaving in ways that would previously have been out of character.

This online handbook is for the families, carers and friends of people with alcohol-related brain damage (ARBD).
