New Methods Offer Real Hope For Curing Alcohol Addiction
Perhaps a pivotal moment in history has been reached in the search for a cure to alcohol and drug addiction. Traditional approaches to recovery revolve involve the AA model and even the most expensive rehab clinics in the world will recommend cognitive therapies, counselling and attendance at AA as their aftercare treatment. Whilst this works for some, a new drug (Baclofen) is providing hope for dealing with the problem at its route i.e. by treating the underlying biochemical cause of most addiction. Now is the time for action in setting up urgent clinical trials whereby the correct dose can be established for individuals to help them, alongside other therapies where necessary.
