‘Hitting Highs at Rock Bottom’: LSD Treatment for Alcoholism, 1950–1970

This is an abstract of a current article that discusses an interesting recent episode in the history of psychiatry. Althought it was taken seriously as a treatment a little more than 50 years ago, LSD treatment is almost as hard to imagine as the mythical Melampus' use of hellebore with milk to treat the daughters of Proetus. If your interested you can find the latter at "Case Histories from the History of Psychiatry."
