An understanding of the nature and progression of alcohol addiction has emerged: alcoholism as the result of an imbalance in the brain's natural production of neurotransmitters critical to our sense of wellbeing.

Alcohol and the Addictive Brain is an account of the scientific discoveries concerning alcoholism.
