Newsweek cover - Fighting Addiction

Dr. Bankole Johnson, an internationally respected addiction researcher and the Wurzbach Professor in the UTHSC departments of psychiatry and pharmacology, was one of a handful of experts quoted in "Can This Pill Stop You from Hitting the Bottle?" ­ an article in the Feb. 12 issue of Newsweek. Dr. Johnson told Newsweek's Claudia Kalb that scientists hope to develop therapies tailored to the individual. "Alcoholics are not all the same," he was quoted as saying. "The hope for the future is that we give people the treatment that is best for them."
