      *Study Shows Most Treatment Effective Against Alcoholism*
      A complex study of alcoholism treatment medications and counseling has

      promoting short-term abstinence, with only the drug acamprosate
      (Campral) proving to be disappointing.


      *Alcohol Costs Community Hospitals $2 Billion Yearly*
      Treating alcohol addiction and related disorders cost community
      hospitals about $2 billion last year, according to a report from the

      *Fear that Trade Pact Could Increase Drug Production*
      More poor Colombian farmers could turn to cultivating coca if a new

      *Many Parents Still Smoke at Home, with Kids*
      Public-smoking bans may cut down on secondhand smoke at restaurants and
      other workplaces, but many children are still exposed to smoking at
      home, according to researchers from Mississippi State University.

      *Delaware Court Hears Appeal of Anti-Tobacco Ad Case*

      *No Outsized Behavioral Problems Among Cocaine Kids*
      'Crack babies' were to the 1980s what 'meth babies' are to the new
      millennium, but follow-up research has consistently shown that children
      exposed to cocaine before birth have no more behavioral problems than
      others their age.

      *Multiracial Teens More Prone to Problem Behaviors, Study Says*
      Multiracial adolescents in middle school are significantly more likely
      to engage in such problem behaviors as violence and substance use than
      single-race young people, according to a new study. However, as one
      co-author notes, in most cases the majority of the multiracial youth
      were not involved in these problems.
