About TSM image
The Sinclair Method for Alcohol Use Disorders is an evidence-based treatment for problematic drinking developed by Dr. John D. Sinclair. Unlike traditional treatments that require complete abstinence from alcohol, the Sinclair Method allows you to continue drinking alcohol at the beginning of treatment.
In fact, treatment success depends on the continued consumption of alcohol in combination with the prescription medication Nal(trexone).
Nal is at the heart of the Sinclair Method (TSM) for Alcoholism. When you take Nal prior to drinking, it blocks endorphins, the naturally occurring opiates in the brain, from being released when alcohol is consumed.

When the endorphins are blocked, there is little to no “buzz” or rewarding experience, and the alcohol doesn’t make you feel the pleasure that drives you to drink excessively.
Over time, your brain learns not to associate alcohol with pleasure, resulting in reduced cravings and improved control over alcohol use. Nal must be taken at least one hour before your first drink.

  • FDA-approved for Alcohol Dependence in 1994
  • Well tolerated with few side effects
  • Covered by most prescription insurance plans
  • Not habit-forming

Getting Nal image
We suggest you first reach out to your GP/PCP doctor.  Most of the people on TSM ask their Doctor for the script to be written as "Take up to 2 (50mg) tablets daily as needed for AUD".  In terms of Cost savings, ask your Doctor to write this as a 90 day supply with refills.

Some of the Telehealth Doctors our TSM friends have used and wanted to share are:


If you do use any of these telehealth websites, let them know sent you!
Join other TSM Meetup Members for private daily online meet ups every day of the week. These meet ups provide ongoing group support to those who are on The Sinclair Method, or want to know more about it. All are welcome at these TSM Meet Ups. You can join via Zoom on your computer or smartphone, or call in using your phone. You'll have the option to have your camera and audio on or off during the meeting. Participation is welcome but not required – it's OK to just sit and listen (You may want to put after your name "Just Listening").
