Alcohol Related Brain Injury

Alcohol misuse may cause alcohol related brain impairment (ARBI) or brain injury. 'Binge drinking', drinking in excess of recommended levels in a single session or heavy drinking over a long time may lead to ARBI. Problems with memory, thinking abilities and physical coordination are possible symptoms of ARBI.
