Addiction Medicine - Medical Consequences - Insomnia and Alcohol and Substance Abuse

Addiction Medicine FYI Addictive disorder research is beginning to define the relationships between detoxification, early recovery and sleep disorders.

Alcoholism and the microbiome — The American Microbiome Institute

An article was recently published in PNAS that investigated the relationship between alcohol dependence and the microbiome. The authors had previously shown that alcohol-dependent people are at higher risk for a 'leaky gut', in which some molecules, such as bacterial metabolites, are passing through the GI tract into the bloodstream.
