A single infusion of ketamine in combination with psychotherapy may help people with alcohol use disorder to reduce or stop drinking, according to a pilotstudy published today inAJP in Advance. Compared with participants who received the sedative midazolam, those who received ketamine had a lower likelihood of alcohol use over a three-week period.“Although alcohol-related costs exceed 1% of the gross national product in developed countries, most affected individuals are not in treatment,” wrote Elias Dakwar, M.D., of Columbia University Medical Center and colleagues. “Of those in treatment, a large number...

Join us as Miguel explains how the sacred masculine is increasingly being recognized as a new model of masculinity to replace the old ideas of what it meant to be a man.

Effectiveness trials of psychological interventions for AUDs in PLWH that include disaggregation of data by level of alcohol consumption, gender and age are needed. There is a need to standardise alcohol use outcome measures across studies and include objective biomarkers that provide a more accurate measure of alcohol consumption and are relatively free fr...

The study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that people who had higher levels of optimism had a longer life span. They also had a greater chance of living past age 85. The researchers analyzed data gleaned from two large population studies: about 70,000 women from the Nurse...
