The Sinclair Method (TSM) is a treatment for alcohol
addiction that uses a technique called pharmacological extinction. Pharmological extinction uses a medication that acts as an opiate blocker to change the way a person responds to alcohol by
disrupting the reward/behavior cycle. The repeated use of the medication naltrexone, before drinking, allows a person to take control of their drinking and possibly even reverse the addiction
process. The Sinclair Method has been proven effective for those who suffer from a diagnosis of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) and those people who drink socially but would like to cut back on
The Sinclair Method has a 78% long-term success
About one quarter of those on TSM become 100% abstinent.
Those who continue to drink usually report that their drinking substantially decreases.
