Featured News: Need for Multiple Naloxone Doses on the Rise
The percentage of people treated for a drug overdose who need more than one dose of the opioid overdose antidote naloxone is on the rise, a new study suggests.
A small research study suggests that violent men with drinking problems can be treated successfully with a combination of addiction counseling, behavioral therapy, and antidepressants, Reuters reported July 9.
The study of treatments for domestic abusers found that adding Prozac to the treatment regimen worked better than treating the men with alcohol counseling and behavioral therapy alone. Researchers said that domestic-violence perpetrators may have a heightened sensitivity to environmental stressors that can affect their mood.
The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
