African drug Ibogaine blocks alcohol cravings

Here's an article of interest from the University of California at San Francisco's Ernest Gallo Clinic and Research Center:

"A naturally occurring hallucinogen advocated by some clinicians as a potent anti-addiction drug has been rigorously studied for the first time, confirming its ability to block alcohol craving in rodents, and clarifying how it works in the brain."

Their findings were published in The Journal of Neuroscience.

The complete article is "African drug Ibogaine blocks alcohol cravings". Well worth checking out.
