“In addition to great health risks, alcohol abuse could cost you your job, family and self worth. Take action by checking into a detox center such as Harbor Village that offers safe, effective treatment,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.

As reported by ScienceDaily (9/8) in their article, Fish Oil Could Help Protect Alcohol Abusers from Dementia, a Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine study found that if alcohol abusers take omega-3 fish oil, they may gain a measure of protection against alcohol-related dementia.

Previous research has shown that alcohol abuse, especially of a long-term nature, increases the chances of dementia. During the study, the brain cells of rats were exposed to high levels of alcohol. When the rats were provided with a fish oil compound, it was discovered that they were protected against cell death and inflammation.

Alcohol abuse can cause serious health issues up to and including death for drinkers. It is best treated by a professional, certified 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village. Located in sunny South Florida, Harbor Village, an alcoholism treatment center, has a trained staff including physicians and nurses who provide private alcohol rehab for clients. In an upscale, state-of-the art environment, clients are greeted by luxury accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of scenic outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the individualized care by the attentive staff.

According to Fish Oil Could Help Protect Alcohol Abusers from Dementia, the study by Michael A. Collins, PhD, and colleagues was reported September 8 at the 14th Congress of the European Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism in Warsaw.

Collins believes that quitting or reducing alcohol consumption is the best way for someone dependent on alcohol to protect their brain. "We don't want people to think it's okay to take a few fish oil capsules and then continue to go on abusing alcohol."
