Doctor Claims Cure for Alcoholism in a Pill

ABC News: Doctor Claims Cure for Alcoholism in a Pill: "A French cardiologist says he has discovered a cure for alcoholism and ended his own decades-long addiction to alcohol by dosing himself with a drug usually used for treating muscle spasms.

Dr. Olivier Ameisen, 55, a French physician who practiced for a time at New York's Weill-Cornell Medical Center claims in his new book 'Le Derner Verre' ('The Last Glass') that since he started taking the drug baclofen, he has lost his desire to consume alcohol."
