Alcohol Use Disorder Treatment

What if I told you there is a treatment for alcoholism that not only allows you to continue drinking, but also teaches your brain moderation?

This is exactly what our Pathway to Addiction Independence for alcohol does utilizing a method dubbed The Sinclair Method or TSM for short. 

The thing that sets TSM apart from the other treatment programs is the success rate of nearly 80%. It also is the only treatment program that is not abstinence based and actually allows you to continue drinking as long as you take the pill one hour before consumption. Another pro of this medication-assisted treatment is it rewires your brain overtime to dramatically decreases your cravings for alcohol and eventually have permanent effects on your alcohol driven pleasure responses.

 

The Science

TSM relies on naltrexone, an opioid antagonist, to block the pleasure responses from the brain due to alcohol consumption. Naltrexone is typically taken one hour before consuming alcohol. Users have reported they now only drink a glass of wine at a dinner party where before they would drink bottles. There has been a general consensus that this treatment program has a success rate of around 80%.
