Can I get naltrexone from my doctor?

The short answer is yes – but it also depends. 

Many physicians may not be aware of naltrexone for treating alcohol use disorder – and/or they may not be familiar with treating alcohol use disorder at all.

For this reason, some physicians may:

  • Refuse to prescribe the medication entirely (don't feel bad if this happens to you – because unfortunately it's quite common), or
  • They may prescribe it to you with incorrect instructions for how to take it (since The Sinclair Method is a very specific protocol), or
  • They may require you to be abstinent before they will prescribe it (again, if they don't understand the research and how The Sinclair Method works), or
  • They may not give you enough because they think the medication is only needed for a few months (for the same reasons above)

All of the above scenarios are based on our personal experience, or what we have heard from Thrive members over the years.

On the other hand, some physicians may be totally on board with prescribing it – it just depends and you won't know until you go. If you were going to explore asking your doctor for naltrexone, it can be helpful to bring materials to your doctor’s appointment that show the science and efficacy of this treatment method – including this scientific paper here.


Do I have to quit drinking to go on The Sinclair Method?

No, in fact, in order for this treatment protocol to work effectively, it requires a person to continue to drink alcohol. Therefore, there is no need for a person to stop drinking alcohol when they start on The Sinclair Method. For most individuals, their drinking will continue to gradually decrease the longer they are on the treatment.
