The alcoholics were abstinent from six months to 13 years, on average, 6, Performance was nine domains: nine domains: abstraction / cognitive flexibility, attention, auditory working memory, immediate memory, delayed memory, psychomotor function, reaction time, spatial processing , and verbal skills.

Both fine and Sullivan noted that these results offer the hope of recovering alcoholics, and can be used to promote abstinence from alcohol. Continue reading
