I read that this drug was helpful for some heroin addicts.

Kudzu has been shown to be highly effective in deterring alcohol consumption for many years (like a thousand or so, in China).

Rehab centers are even using the herb to treat.

Holistic health comes through again where conventional medicine fails.

Yes, it is the same Kudzu.

I've wondered if that stuff was good for anything other than vinning up telephone poles.

It only works in a fairly small percentage of people, and largely does so by making them feel sick when they drink. Think of it as a natural antibuse. Happened to check it out when I was researching kudzu in depth.
