dc.description.abstractAlcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS) occurs after an individual significantly reduces or completely stops consuming alcohol after a period of constant consumption. Existing literature plentifully describes social factors that contribute to lower likelihood of development of alcohol dependence among women. Physiological differences make alcohol dependent women more likely to develop alcoholrelated hepatic complications. Animal studies suggest that ovarian hormones are neuroprotective and lead to lower incidence of seizures and allow for quicker recovery from AWS.
