    That was interesting. I have never heard about that drug.

    It's funny that two of the most addictive drugs are legal.

    There's a lot wrong with AA. For starters, they mention the faith based treatment. Cramming your belief structure down someone else's throat isn't treatment. Secondly, that most people referred to AA are referred by the courts, to a faith based treatment, is frankly bizarre and maybe unconstitutional. Thirdly, NO treatment is going to be effective, for anything, unless and until the person being treated makes a dedicated effort. I mean, they decide they want to change their lives, not the court deciding they should change their lives.

    Just my .02.

    You can't cure somebody who doesn't want to be cured.
