Drug Addiction Treatment – Atropine Comatose Therapy

A somatic therapy for the treatment of selected cases of mental illness and drug addiction is described. Coma is produced by the administration of massive doses of atropine and terminated by physostigmine. Increased accessibility, better contact with reality, and more appropriate affective responses are found immediately after termination of coma, providing the opportunity for more effective psychotherapeutic assistance.
