Research shows LSD can help cure alcoholism. Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology conducted a meta-analysis of research of six different LSD studies that were conducted in the U.S. between 1966 and 1970. These studies investigated the effects of LSD on 536 alcoholics. The studies were controlled, one group was given LSD while the other was given a placebo. Only 38% of the placebo group showed an improvement, while 60% of the LSD group showed improvement and were also less likely to relapse.
A single dose of LSD, in the context of various alcoholism treatment programs, is associated with a decrease in alcohol misuse.
