Lightbulb Single Dose of Ketamine May Help Heavy Drinkers

Interesting research findings that may bring help for alcoholics...

NPR Choice page

Quote:
The researchers thought ketamine might be able to target a heavy drinker's memories, particularly if people had their memories of drinking triggered just before they received a dose of the drug.

Thanks Chemar; very interesting.

I know somebody who (under close medical supervision of course) has found ketamine helpful in managing her otherwise treatment-resistant Major Depressive Disorder.
