Research informs treatment of petrol and alcohol users

Date posted: 10 May 2011

Research by Menzies School of Health Research at Charles Darwin University (CDU) is improving understanding of the treatment and prevention of chronic petrol and alcohol use. Kylie Dingwall, who will be conferred a PhD from CDU at its June graduation ceremony, researched and monitored the cognitive and psychological changes of a number of Indigenous Australians after they had been involved in petrol and alcohol use. Dr Dingwall said that while significant damaging brain changes were associated with chronic petrol and alcohol abuse, recovery was possible with abstinence.
