Are you talking about Prometa? It will air on 60 minutes at 7 this evening. It is a new treatment for alcohol, cocaine and meth. I am always interested in hearing of new treatments, although I have read of this one.

Thanks for the post on the 60 minute segment.

Does anyone get really mad at the pharmaceutical industry. Now they make more money "helping" you get off of drugs they made. Just venting here but....

That is why Hythiam is really cool as their treatment is non addictive. They don't manufacture any of the meds and the treatment targets cravings its not a blocker.
