About

Why not use evidence-based treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD)? If you have lost control over how much you drink, get help from an expert. If psychological or will-power based treatment methods have not worked, the Sinclair Method and medications like naltrexone or baclofen may be critical for your recovery. As a specialist in Addiction Medicine, my evidenced based medical program is affordable, practical, and accessible. Go to AlcoholRecoveryMedicine.com for more information and learn how thousands of people have found freedom from alcohol.
I have more than twenty-five years experience using naltrexone and other medications to help people with AUD; I adapt the latest scientific knowledge to help each individual patient get control and drink less. Appropriate medical treatment of AUD always recognizes the importance of psychological, social, dietary, and spiritual aspects of recovery.
Alcohol use disorder (AUD), is a complex condition affecting different people in different ways. In my telemedicine practice, I work to create a unique treatment plan to help each individual patient live their best life. Check out AlcoholRecoveryMedicine.com to make an appointment and learn more.

Sinclair Method

The Sinclair method dictates that a person with alcohol use disorder take naltrexone 1 hour before drinking - every time they drink. This can result in a gradual reduction in drinking that permits heavy drinkers to stop drinking entirely without the need for acute detoxification. This specific method of uses naltrexone to block the reward from endorphins produced from drinking while allowing endorphins from healthy activities to develop new thought paths. As drinking no longer feels as rewarding, brain changes lead away from excessive drinking, and the person begins to want the healthy activities that provide a natural endorphin reward.
