MR. JIM PAQUETTE - APRIL 2010
Read Jim's letter to MUSC about his experience as an alcohol treatment clinical trials participant




"I am going to be brief because I will start crying. I was on the verge of losing a wonderful husband and three fabulous children. Most of all, I was losing myself. I have all that back now." - Anonymous

"Everyone was extremely nice, open, accomodating, and helpful. I think the medicine decreased my desire to drink, but the accountability and encouragement of the frequent meetings was equally, if not more, beneficial. I am much more optimistic about my future as a result of my participation in this program." --Bob 

"A great program! I would highly recommend it to anyone that is trying to quit drinking. The staff is great and very undertanding. It changed my life!" --JR

"I have nothing but good feedback to offer about this trial and the folks that administer it. Melissa & Dr. Latham have been so kind, educational, accommodating & caring. They are not judgmental (which I was afraid of) & offer heartfelt 'atta-boys' for the smallest of accomplishments. Thank you for positively impacting my life." --LW
