Regaining impulse control

In a study published online by the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, UC Davis researchers found that it takes at least a year for former methamphetamine users to regain impulse control. Lead author Ruth Salo, assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, said the results tell recovering substance abusers and their supporters that it can take extended time to improve brain functions critical to recovery.
