The Sinclair Method (TSM) is a revolutionary approach for treating alcohol use disorder, integrating naltrexone medication with continued drinking, plus lifestyle changes to gradually decrease alcohol dependency.

If you're in the United States and thinking about trying TSM to manage your drinking, here's a quick breakdown of what you'll need to budget for:

Three Main Expenses for Starting the Sinclair Method:


1. Doctor Visit 👩🏻‍⚕️

You'll need a prescription for naltrexone, a medication that helps reduce cravings. This can be done by:  

  • Your regular doctor: Costs vary depending on your insurance and doctor. Call them to get an estimate. 
    • Not all doctors will prescribe this medication, that's why we recommend working with a specialist 
  • Thrive's telemedicine partners: Estimated cost of $175 for the first visit, $70 for follow-ups. Convenient & easy!

2. Naltrexone 💊

  • Without insurance: Around $30-$40 for a month's supply. Coupons can bring it down to $16.
  • With insurance: Coverage varies, so check with your provider.

3. Support Program 👋

Research shows that naltrexone works best when combined with psychosocial support.

  • Thrive's Alcohol Freedom Program: $997 for lifetime access to coaching, peer support, and resources. Affordable payment plans available, click here to learn about your options.
  • Therapy: You can find a therapist at different prices depending on location and insurance.


Estimated Total Cost for the Sinclair Method + Support with Thrive

  • Starting up: $175 (telemedicine doctor) + $30 (medication) + $997 (Thrive program) = $1,202 (one-time payment, can be lower with payment plans)
  • Follow-up doctor visits: Add the cost of follow-up appointments (~$70) to cover medication refills and progress checks.
