Volunteering for CARDS

What is ARBD?

Alcohol Related Brain Damage is a spectrum of disorders that merge and overlap, changing the structure and function of the brain through long term consumption of alcohol (A Fuller Life, 2004).

As a result, difficulties with learning, retaining or recalling information occur alongside physical symptoms. A specific diagnosis is not essential for the CARDS service to support the individual. For a full explanation of ARBD and its potential effects on an individual we direct volunteers and individuals towards Alcohol Concerns resources:
