      *Daily Edition* December 19, 2006

      *TOP STORY*

      *Addiction Recovery Includes Brain Benefits*
      Abstinence from drinking allows the brains of chronic drinkers to
      regenerate, and the sooner problem drinkers quit the more brain function
      they are liable to recover.


      *Sleep Medicine Ambien Abused by Teens*
      Some adolescents are misusing the prescription sleep medication Ambien,
      which they say causes hallucinations and blackouts.

      *Checkpoints and Interlocks to Fight Drunk Driving*
      Increased use of police checkpoints, devices to prevent convicted drunk
      drivers from operating their cars, and other new approaches are seen by
      advocates as necessary to continue cutting the number of alcohol-related
      traffic deaths in the U.S.

      *Effectiveness of Posh Treatment Programs Questioned*
      New luxury addiction-treatment programs offer such comforts as massages,
      gourmet dining, personal concierges, and stylish bedding, but critics
      say such niceties may work against a key component of recovery: getting
      addicts to let go of their ego and self-centeredness.

      *Smokers Want Philip Morris to Pay for Cancer Screening*
      Tobacco company Philip Morris is being sued by a group of Marlboro
      smokers from Massachusetts who say the firm should be forced to pay for
      cancer screenings.
