I didn't see the show for the same reasons as you, past my bedtime and broken VCR. (One of these days when I'm less apathetic I will get a new VCR.) Anyway, one thing that has helped me as an alcoholic is Naltrexone. It does a good job of killing cravings for alcohol and drugs.

I don't know the exact workings in the brain but it blocks the transmitters that give you the feeling of being high.

There was a time when I was taking this med that I continued to drink and never had the feeling of being drunk. In my case it did a great job of blocking the recepters that made me feel "good" from drinking. I can definitely reccommend this med for people trying to get off of drugs or alcohol. It also has AD properties that have been documented in the archives here.

I have no idea if this is what ABC had on their show but it has been very helpful for me.

BTW, the brand name is ReVia if you want to do a web search.
