Modulation of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) neural pathways and the opioid system has been promising for reducing ethanol intake in alcohol-dependent rodents and humans. Specifically, CRF receptor 1 (CRF-R1) antagonism in brain sites such as the dorsal raphé nucleus (DRN) has been suggested to alter output involved in alcohol drinking.
