Alcoholism Future

separate studies indicate that dopamine stabilizers may reduce alcohol cravings in alcoholics, ScienceDaily reports. While more clinical studies are required, researchers have found that the dopamine stabilizer OSU6162 normalized the level of dopamine in the brain reward system of rats that had consumed alcohol for a long time period. The findings come from research conducted at the Karolinska Institutet and the Sahlgrenska Academy in Sweden. Alcoholism changes the social patterns and behaviors of the drinker: Stop attending family functions, choosing instead to drink Drink alone or try to hide their drinking Become physically aggressive towards others while under the influence Make excuses for their drinking or deny that it’s an issue Get arrested for behavior under the influence, being drunk in public, or driving while intoxicated No longer prioritize their appearance or basic hygiene
