*1: 12-step daily program with a sponsor that helps the individual deal with the stress that lead to alcohol. One drink will lead back into binge drinking.

*2: Medical treatments, even in expensive rehabilitation facilities, have a dismal record because chemically these individual find an addicted response in alcohol intoxication.

*3: Medical therapy with naltrexone is supposed to decrease the craving. Medical publications show it works no better long term than a sugar pill.

*4: AntabuseĀ®/disulfiram causes the individual who drinks alcohol to profusely vomit. The disulfiram prevents the liver from converting the alcohol so within 30 minutes, there is a buildup of acetaldehyde.
