Back when I was a problem drinker I had a conversation with a buddy, whom I would consider being a seasoned drinker, about his recent trials and success with the Naltrexone Alcohol Medicine.
Naltrexone Alcohol Medication is shown to get rid of the desire to overindulge while permitting the alcoholic to easily drink in small volumes. My friend recommended a documentary on the topic called One Little Pill.
The TV program details a specific method of using the medication referred to as “The Sinclair Method,” developed by the late Dr. David Sinclair.
The assertion of the film, which is produced and told by actress and Naltrexone promoter Claudia Christian, is that the traditional methods most notably the abstinence component are outdated. The modern-day claim is that research has since produced a better way.

Review some myths about Medication Assisted Treatment Identify medications used to treat opiate dependence Identify medications used to treat alcohol dependence Discuss the mechanisms of action Evaluate pros and cons of each
3. Medications are a crutch ◦ We do what is more rewarding than the alternative Medications can make sobriety “feel better” by addressing underlying neurochemical imbalances Medications can remove the rewards from use by Making it unpleasant (Antabuse) Removing the “high” (Buprenorphine, Naltrexone) Both (Suboxone) Remember recovery is more than just NOT using. Medications can help ease the transition until the brain has rebalanced and the new lifestyle is in full swing
4. Using medication goes against 12-Step Philosophy ◦ Alcoholics Anonymous does not encourage AA participants to not use prescribed medications or to discontinue taking prescribed medications The Big Book states, “God has abundantly supplied this world with fine doctors, psychologists, and practitioners of various kinds. Do not hesitate to take your health problems to such person …Try to remember that though God has wrought miracles among us, we should never belittle a good doctor or psychiatrist. Their services are often indispensable in treating a newcomer and in following his case afterward.”
5. Medications Can… ◦ Increase energy and motivation (dopamine and norepinephrine) while the person’s brain and body are recovering ◦ Remove some of the reinforcing effects of the drugs ◦ Prevent relapse by making relapse very unpleasant ◦ Reduce the intensity of co-occurring disorders ◦ Reduce conflict/improve social support ◦ Reduce absenteeism from work

In this video, Dr. Mendelson speaks on the basics of medication assisted treatment (MAT), or medication treatment for alcohol addiction. Medication treatment is an alternative to 12 steps and other abstinence-based programs, and is shown to have greater effectiveness than abstinence alone. The Sinclair Method (TSM), which allows people with Alcohol Use Disorder to gradually reduce their cravings for alcohol and therefore the amount they drink, is one popular example.
Ria Health delivers evidence-based care that includes medications, one on one support, a digital app, and progress tools. We support people who want to either reduce or stop drinking with the care of an expert medical team and community support.
We use safe and FDA approved medications such as naltrexone, which is the cornerstone of the Sinclair Method. We also support not for profit advocates that promote awareness of options for people who want to change their relationship with alcohol. We are proud sponsors of Claudia Christian’s CThree Foundation and Moderation Management.
