    If true, this is a very good thing.

    AA will fight this tooth and nail if it is indeed a cure for alcoholism. They will lose a lot of funding and their grasp on people whom lack the self discipline to control their drinking.

    Researchers claim LSD may treat alcoholism as well. The resources are all in print, but they exist. Linkity Dink.

    But Baclofen itself is addictive.

    Shifting one addiction for another seems a common theme for the ones that work quick.

    Breaking the addictive habits are the hard things to do.

    We treat heroin addiction with methodone, and this guy wants to treat alcohol abuse with trancs. Sounds good, lets get right on that.
