There are quite a lot of different treatments that deal with the problems related with alcohol dependence. The treatments available for this problems can be put into the following categories…medication to reduce withdrawal symptoms and stop alcohol cravings, professional counseling to support relationship issues and education and support to
The previously mentioned methods are normally the ones that are recommended although a new drug has just come onto the market called chemical Revia (formerly Trexan), Vivitrolnaltrexone. This drug is normally administered by the form of an injection about once a month , but it is also available now as a pill.
The way Naltrexone works is by confusing the part of the brain that is responsible for making us feel good while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. It basically numbs the pleasure effect that alcohol gives us and can be either taken on its own or as a combination drug with other alcohol dependence drugs.
Recent studies have shown though that Naltrexone is most effective when its use is combined with counseling. It has also been proved that Naltrexone drastically reduces the risk of relapse after having managed to
Unfortunately this drug is not always 100% effective especially on certain men who have suffered from alcohol dependence big time or over a long period of time. Naltrexone is no different to any other drug and can cause side effects like fatigue, dizziness and nausea and it can even make you feel nervous, sleepy or anxious.
These treatments need professional backing and you may be interested in hearing what other people have to say on the subject. You will be amazed at just how many people share their experiences at stopdrinkingadvice.org.

Okay, I recently received an email from Rebecca, with some really good questions about young people drinking, and the problems that this culture can lead to.
So first I just want to thank Rebecca, but add that this only is my own personal opinion, and that any recommendations made by StopDrinkingAdvice.org is just good wholesome advice.
Anyway, on to the first question…
Do you think allowing people to bring their own alcohol into clubs is a good idea? If not why?
No, definitely not. The whole alcohol culture is just an excuse to make people believe that they cannot have a good time without alcohol, and clubs are on the whole an arena full of available addictions, so I would not loosen the restrictions already in place, I would add further restrictions to make to more difficult to purchase alcohol in the first place. The real problem is that too much money is made by selling alcohol, making any changes to protect people from alcohol even more complicated.
Do you think it will encourage young people to drink more?
Well yes it certainly will as the cheaper they can purchase alcohol at the more people will drink, so maybe as has been done with cigarettes, tax on alcohol should be increased to help push up the price of alcohol. Although if we are too just focus on Clubs, then maybe the first 2 or 3 drinks could be cheaper, as a way to restrict converting a social habit into an alcohol addiction.
Do you think it will encourage an increase in appropriate behavior such as fighting among people while on a night out?
Now you have touched a different aspect of drinking here, as we know that alcohol does lead in violence in some people, but not everybody. So although alcohol can lead to violence, it is not the only cause.
What advice would you give for young people who are buying their own alcohol before entering clubs and pubs in North East England?
My advice would be to remember that alcohol needs to given a great respect, and that with the more one drinks, the more risk they are at in getting hurt. When young people drink, they only need to know that they have to maintain a complete control over their actions, and more important of all that they manage to get home safely.
I realize that there does exist a drinking culture in North East England, but always remember not to mix alcoholic drinks, and never drink if you have to drive home later. Keep alcohol under control, and enjoy the nightlife available without ruining your life by abusing alcohol… It all goes back to plain old just being sensible!!!
