A Prescription for Alcoholics: Medications for Alcoholism

Recommended Posts


This book has the most inclusive, up to date information about medications for the treatment of alcoholism available in one location. It is extremely well researched and well written. It is a must read for anyone interested in medications for addiction treatment. 

From the Amazon description: 

Eighty-eight thousand Americans will die this year from alcoholism. Most will do so without ever knowing of the FDA-approved medications that might have saved their lives. 

‘A Prescription for Alcoholics – Medications for Alcoholism’ by author Linda Burlison, is the first book ever published about FDA-approved medications 

The book takes a first sober look at anti-alcoholism drugs, the research behind them, and why nobody seems to know about them. 

Most people (including physicians and alcoholics) are unaware of the FDA-approved medications to fight alcoholism, despite the fact that the US government calls them the ‘standard of care for the treatment of alcoholism.’ 

Instead of medical treatment, the vast majority of doctors send treatment-seeking alcoholics to Alcoholics Anonymous-based 12-step programs which result in a dismal failure rate estimated at 90 percent. 

The 550-page book is an extensive look at drugs like naltrexone, acamprosate, baclofen, topiramate, gabapentin, nalmefene and others.
