The End of My Addiction, by Olivier Ameisen: Could Baclofen Be the Cure We’re Looking For?

The End of My Addiction, by Olivier Ameisen: Could Baclofen Be the Cure We’re Looking For? | Baclofen - Press Articles | Scoop.it

Originally posted by Scicurious On February 26, 2009, at 1:06 AM ....The idea that you just take a pill and make it go away? It is possible that, even though we all know that alcoholism and other kinds of drug abuse are diseases that cost the public billions of dollars per year, that society has still made up believe in will power. That we think, at some level, that addicts should suffer for what they have done. Ameisen had no suffering. He just stopped. Is our society ready to accept that kind of a cure?

La RTU est une mesure qui peut être prise par l'ANSM lorsqu'il n'existe pas d'alternative thérapeutique appropriée disposant d'une autorisation de mise sur le marché (AMM) pour une pathologie donnée. Elle ne peut excéder une durée de trois ans...."
