The Sinclair Method, or TSM, consists of taking naltrexone, an opioid blocker, one hour before your first drink. Naltrexone chemically disrupts the body’s behavior/reward cycle causing you to want to drink less instead of more. The Sinclair Method has a 78% long-term success rate. Patients who use TSM can expect to decrease their alcohol consumption, have less cravings to drink frequently, and are able to gradually reduce the amount of alcohol rather effortlessly. Naltrexone has little to no side effects.
The traditional approach to treating alcohol use disorder (AUD) has centered around abstinence, with inpatient and residential rehabilitation programs built upon this model. However, recognizing the limitations of this approach, there’s a growing advocacy for harm reduction strategies, focusing on reducing alcohol consumption rather than complete abstinence. Driven by a more advanced medical model, Dr. Paul, a Board-Certified Addictionologist emphasizes the use of medications alongside standard techniques to reduce alcohol intake.
