Cognitive Rehabilitation of Amnesic Alcoholics: A Twelve Month Follow-Up Study
The rehabilitation status of amnesic alcoholic patients who previously participated in either a memory training programme, an activation control programme, or an assessment only condition, was determined at a 12 month follow-up. An earlier study found a non-specific improvement in memory functioning for patients in both group programmes. These patients were also found to be more likely to be discharged from hospital at the 12 month follow-up. It is suggested that further attempts to rehabilitate brain-damaged alcoholics may be justified.
