LSD Could Save Alcoholics and Money Too

Alcoholism has been labelled a disease for far too long and the cure could come from LSD. It might sound strange but this is a little known fact that has been around for years. The government banned it during their 60s witch hunt years but it has been making a comeback and not just for tripping balls either.

A group of researchers from Norway looked over several prior studies that treated alcoholics with LSD and found the success rate was actually damn high — 59 percent of alcoholics didn’t relapse and start drinking again after being treated with LSD.

Teri Krebs of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology was quoted as saying,

LSD worked in an entirely different way than any current psychiatric drugs… Many patients said they had gained a new appreciation for their alcohol problem and new motivation to address it.

Isn’t it funny how low cost and beneficial drugs are always outlawed yet overpriced garbage is allowed to pump out from the pharmaceutical industry. Perhaps it’s time to rethink that position and turn to treatments that are actually effective.
