Reporting Groups
  Description
DCS and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Subjects will receive 250 mg of Seromycin or D-cycloserine (DCS) prior to computerized cognitive behavioral therapy.

Seromycin (D-cycloserine, DCS) : 250 mg DCS once weekly for 4 weeks prior to the initiation of a Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) session for drug relapse intervention.

Placebo and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Subjects will receive a 250 mg identical looking placebo pill prior to computerized cognitive behavioral therapy.

Placebo : Placebo identical looking to the 250 mg DCS once weekly for 4 weeks prior to the initiation of a Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) session for drug relapse intervention.
