There are more than a million heroin addicts in the U-S-- many have tried unsuccessfully to quit the habit.

But an experimental procedure is taking the sting out of heroin detoxification with some impressive results.
The procedure is known as UROD-- Ultra Rapid Opiate Detoxification.

The Center for Investigation and Treatment of Addiction started the study six months ago in New York.
Experts say UROD is effective for patients addicted to natural or synthetic drugs-- such as heroin, methodone, and opium....and prescription painkillers such as morphine and demorol.
Doctors say unlike any other treatment in the world, UROD can provide 100-percent detoxification in 24 hours-- compared to other treatments that can take up to 30 days.

Our moods often depend on our sleep-- not necessarily how much sleep we've had, but whether the sleep is in sync with our internal biological clock.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=04-JAMA; :


At least that's according to a recent study.
It put volunteers through a month of isolation to study sleep patterns.
The study found the volunteers' moods were worst when they were awake two hours before the time their internal clock said they should have been getting up.
Moods were happiest several hours after the biological clock said they should be awake.
In a typical schedule, that corresponds with mid-afternoon.
