New pharmacological treatment strategies for relapse prevention

Rainer Spanagel and Valentina Vengeliene

Current Topics in Behavioral Neurosciences 2013, Volume 13, pages 583–609

Editor's comment:
Acknowledging the value of non-pharmacological interventions, the authors focus in their review paper on treatment strategies that are based on pharmacological interventions. No other field in psychiatric research has yielded as many promising approaches in target definition and drug development as that for alcohol addiction. Learning from other addictive substances as well as making use of new pharmacological and pharmacogenetic findings will be very helpful in the further development of treatment strategies. A combination of behavioral and pharmacological therapies might be the optimal approach, and the whole organism has to be taken into consideration to provide the best therapy.
