Alcohol Dependency Treatment
We create personalized treatment plans for alcohol dependence. To ensure long-term success, we use prescription medication, psychotherapy, counseling, and provide continuity of care for our patients.
MEDICATIONS TREATING ALCOHOL DEPENDENCE
- NALTREXONE ( ReVia). A medication used in alcoholism treatment to decrease cravings. Unlike Disulfiram, another medicine that is sometimes used to treat alcoholism, Naltrexone does not make you feel sick if you drink alcohol while taking it.
- NALTREXONE extended-Release (VIVITROL). A once-monthly extended-release injectable formulation. Long-acting Naltrexone was well tolerated and resulted in reductions in heavy drinking among treatment-seeking alcohol dependent patients during 6 months of therapy.
- ACAMPOSATE (CAMPRALl). Acamposate is thought to stabilize the chemical balance in the brain that would otherwise be disrupted by alcoholism. Treatment with Campral should be part of a comprehensive management program that includes psychosocial support.
- DISULFIRAM (ANTABUSE)
