In this study 42 samples were collected and attempted to find out their associated depression and organic brain dysfunction in order to help alcohol dependents in improving their associated depression and organic brain dysfunction in the best possible way. The study was conducted at in patient department of Post Graduate Institute of Behavioural and Medical Sciences (PGIBAMS) using specially design socio-demographic and personal data sheets. The informations were gathered from alcohol dependents using Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) and Nehor Benson Test to find out their depression and organic brain dysfunction.
