New Drug to Treat Alcoholism in Japan

New Drug to Treat Alcoholism in Japan

Do you struggle with controlling your drinking? Do you wish that you knew how to stop consuming alcohol? Do you ever wonder if an alcohol rehab center could help you? Do you despair of treating your addiction? Alcoholism is a disease that affects millions of people all over the world. But people don't have to suffer without help. In Japan recently, a drug has been approved that shows lots of promise for being able to combat alcoholism.

The drug has been approved in 24 other countries, and was available for sale there. "Regtect went on sale earlier this year in Japan, becoming the first alcohol-dependence drug in 30 years to launch in a country that is famous for being 'alcohol happy,'" reported the Japan Daily Press. But it had to go through various clinical trials to be approved in Japan. On the details of the study, the Japan Daily Press wrote that "In the clinical test prior to getting approval, almost half of the 320 patients involved in the study became alcohol-abstitent after just 24 weeks of using the drug, compared to the 36% in the placebo group."

Do you ever wonder if maybe you can't control your drinking? Do you wish that you could stop? Do you ever find yourself drinking more than you intended, or doing things that you wouldn't do while sober?
