Abstract

Once functional tolerance to and physical dependence on alcohol have been acquired, they are more readily reacquired (Mendelson et al., 1966, Branchey et al., 1971 and Kalant, 1973). Kalant (1973) designated this effect “carry-over” indicating a residual effect of the preceding alcohol tolerance and dependence.
