A friend is conducting an alcoholism intervention for someone tonight and her business takes her to Scranton, PA, where the low dose naltrexone conference will be held next weekend at the Hotel Anthracite. Perfect timing publishing this article. This will be directly helpful to my social circle. Way to go, Dr. Haider.

Mutual friends are already your ivr customers. We all appreciate your work.

Excellent article, very well done. I might add that acupuncture should be considered as well, at least as an adjunct therapy, as there is a preponderance of evidence showing the endogenous release of endorphins, enkephalins, and numerous other changes demonstrated in the blood and brain that are extremely beneficial to a variety of conditions and syndromes. Thank you Dr. Haider and team for the excellent work that you have done and continue to do.

Naltrexone is an opiate blocker. From personal experience, it is NOT a cure for alcoholism. It’s not even treatment.

Read carefully. Who takes a pill exactly an hour before drinking? If an alcoholic in recovery has an urge to drink, he or she will drink. Telling someone to plan drinking an hour out every single time is silly.

From a science perspective , FEW know of the massive contributions by Dr. Abram Hoffer.

Dr. Hoffer did a of pioneering work in investigating vita.in B3 as flush Niacin (aka Nicotinic Acid and is a vasodilator, hence the flush which lasts about 30 minutes ) .

As a brilliant doctor and psychiatrist, Hoffer FOUND and proved a massive connection with B3 deficiency and mental illness, addictions including alcoholism and more.

What if I told you that MOST mental challenges can be reversed or helped with high dose B3 and vitamin C .

Hoffer treated many including the worst Schizophrenia patients and hundreds of alcoholics including the founding member of Alcoholics anonymous BILL W.

Using any psychotropic drug will not only fail, never cure ( but turn you into a zombie like addict) AND the side effects are massive and harmful increasing even suicide .

Hoffer has many books but I suggest, as a start - "NIACIN - The REAL STORY" as an excellent start.

Of course as usual BIG CORRUPT PHARMA did everything they can to prevent this knowledge, but yes, I am living proof and take 3 grams of Niacin daily with C .

Niacin has a very short biological half life of just 45 minutes . It mist be taken 3 times a day. Vitamin C is similar.

Best in health .

Here is one man's story of a life SAVED by Dr. Abram Hoffer .

Addictions are and always have been spiritual maladies. Strongholds can only be released by God. Become accountable to yourself, God and others and ask God to remove the stronghold. Ask that same God to meet you where you are at and submit yourself through faith to Jesus. You will be free; free indeed!!

THANK YOU for this post, Dr. Haider.

Recently I listened to Dr. Marilyn Singleton’s podcast titled “The War Against Drugs is a War Against All Americans” at: https://www.americaoutloud.news/the-war-on-drugs-is-a-war-against-all-americans/

Today I read “There is a Cure for Alcoholism and Addiction. But it's been covered up by Big Pharma forever: https://blog.mygotodoc.com/p/there-is-a-cure-for-alcoholism-and

I suggested that Dr. Singleton explore and discuss your Substack article in a future podcast.

CBD is also used to curb addictions and is a natural source. Big Pharmacy keeps it at bay

Thank you for this information, Dr. Haider.

I'd be interested in hearing your opinion of Dr Abram Hoffer's work on curing alcoholism with nutrition. For example, his book: The Vitamin Cure for Alcoholism: Orthomolecular Treatment of Addictions.

Here's some info about that book (pasted from the Amazon page for it):

Alcoholism is primarily a metabolic disease that should be treated nutritionally first. The person called an "alcoholic" typically suffers from nutrient deficiency, especially vitamins B1 and B3, and seeks relief by consuming alcohol. Megavitamin therapy is more effective than drugs or counseling.
