Alcohol, anxiety and depression (video)

Dr. Connor Farren talks about the link between alcohol use and depression. He explains the reasoning behind the new terminology ‘alcohol use disorder’ and the checklist of 11 criteria, two of which are needed to diagnose AUD.

Farren explains that mild depression is exacerbated by alcohol and that research shows that mood can improve significantly even after a break from alcohol of only ten days. He emphasizes that when alcohol is abused, both the alcohol dependence and the depression need to be treated.
