Dry Drunk Syndrome

Dry Drunk Syndrome

Just quitting an addiction is not enough to ensure success in recovery. If people do not put enough effort into building a good life away from substance abuse they might start to experience dry drunk syndrome. Their behavior deteriorates and they can be full of anger and resentment. In AA, they talk about those individuals who haven’t touched alcohol in years but still haven’t managed to get sober.
