THE SINCLAIR METHOD
The Sinclair Method – Reduce the amount you drink!
We believe that our clients define their own success. We listen to our clients – which is why we offer The Sinclair Method (a way to moderate your drinking) as one of our recovery solutions. Addiction Recovery Centers believes that the Sinclair Method of treatment is ideal for those struggling with alcohol who simply want to gain control over their consumption. It has been especially effective for those that aren’t necessarily sure they have a problem or who are frequently in social and work settings that revolve around libations. ARC has expanded the program to include a series of confidential one on one counseling sessions and a proprietary workbook. This method has proven to be life changing.

The Sinclair Method . . . (from the C3 Foundation)
The Sinclair Method (TSM) is a treatment for alcohol addiction that uses a technique called pharmacological extinction—the use of an opiate blocker to turn habit-forming behaviors into habit erasing behaviors. The effect returns a person’s craving for alcohol to its pre-addiction state.
TSM consists of taking Naltrexone or Nalmefene one hour before your first drink of the day for the rest of your life as long as you continue to drink. Naltrexone (or Nalmefene) 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.*
*Most other treatments claim a 5-15% success rate.
*All other treatments for alcohol dependency fall into one of three categories: attempting to manage the desire to drink; chemically suppressing the craving to drink, like a diet pill; or making drinking so miserable the person doesn’t want to drink anymore.
*As with any medical treatment, patient results may vary. Dosage changes should be discussed with a physician.
