A powerful anti-addictiondrug, Addictol is an effective pre-War medicine that works both physically and psychologically to remove both the symptoms of drug abuse and the craving. However, it does not prevent relapse, especially in cases of long-term drug abuse. It generally takes a few hours to work and has a number of side-effects, including nausea.
↑The Sole Survivor: "What's Addictol? How does it work?" Rachel: "Addictol works both physically and psychologically to remove both the symptoms and the need. It's very effective. However, if the patient doesn't want to quit, he or she will just go back to using." (Rachel's dialogue)
↑Bobby De Luca: "I want to get clean." Rachel: "I can help you, but you're going to have to trust me."
Bobby De Luca: "Is it going to hurt?"
Rachel: "You may feel uneasy for a few hours while the Addictol takes effect. But then you'll feel better than you ever have before."
Bobby De Luca: "Thanks for being honest."
