What is The Sinclair Method (TSM)?
The Sinclair Method (TSM) for Alcohol Use Disorders (AUD) is a scientific evidence-based treatment for problematic drinking developed by Dr. David Sinclair. Unlike traditional treatments that require complete abstinence from alcohol, the Sinclair Method allows you to continue drinking alcohol during treatment.
TSM is a scientifically-proven method for treating alcohol addiction that has been found to be highly effective for many individuals. The method uses a FDA approved prescription medication we call "Nal"(trexone), which is taken before drinking and works to reduce cravings and the pleasurable effects of alcohol.
One of the unique features of TSM is that it allows individuals to continue drinking while in treatment, as opposed to requiring complete abstinence. This allows the person to gradually decrease their alcohol consumption over time, rather than stopping abruptly.
TSM is based on the principles of operant conditioning, which means that over time, the person's brain learns to associate drinking with reduced pleasure, leading to a decrease in alcohol consumption. This approach can help to reduce the risk of relapse and improve the chances of success in treatment.
Overall, TSM is a non-invasive, medication-assisted treatment option that can help people struggling with AUD to overcome their dependence and regain control over their lives. It has been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials, and is gaining popularity as a treatment choice for those seeking help for AUD.
