Suggest treactment for alcohol addication
User rating for this question
Hi: I am investigating non-pharmaceutical treatments for alcohol. I have read about a "Last Call" program using a substance called Sobrexa and another program using a substance called Declinol. Both use kudzu among other ingredients over a 4 week program to reduce or eliminate alcohol use and cravings. I have read about kudzu years ago, but never was able to find it in a formulation that was helpful. I have tried Campral but ended up paying $20,000 per year in insurance as a result of my "alcohol problem." This will change with Obamacare, but you can understand why I would rather avoid the drugs. Thanks.
