What can you tell me about medication used to fight alcoholism? How would I get it, and how much will it cost? I don't have much money. The prescription medications used to treat alcoholism work best in conjunction with counseling and social support. ReVia (naltrexone) has been available for some time and takes away the pleasurable feelings associated with alcohol. Sadly, the drug is quite expensive (more than $200 for a month's supply), and there is no patient assistance from the manufacturer.

Bad beats and the stories that go along with them are to poker players what "the one that got away" is to fishermen - essentially hard-luck occasions that lend themselves to colorful, if sometimes tiresome, yarns. Bad beats occur when an exceptionally good hand winds up losing to an even better one; the defeat is all the more galling when it comes on a final, lucky card. Those who have watched the most recent World Series of Poker main event on TV saw one of the game's top woman players, Jennifer Harman, take a debilitating bad beat early in that No-limit Texas Hold 'em tournament.

Even the staunchest Washington Redskins fan might be hard-pressed to find anything positive in the team's 0-2 preseason record. But to some of the players, superseding the turnovers, penalties and erratic play are signs that the defense is still formidable and that the offense appears - however slightly - to be improving. In the 24-17 loss to the visiting Cincinnati Bengals on Friday night, Washington offered a glimpse of what its offense can do, and the results were somewhat encouraging.
