Book Description

Oct. 23 2012
Finally, there is a cure for alcoholism. This is the first step.

Featuring new and updated information and studies, including an introduction by actress Claudia Christian, the second edition of 'The Cure for Alcoholism' delivers exactly what millions of alcoholics and families of alcoholics have been hoping for: a painless, dignified, and medically proven cure for their addiction. Backed by 82 clinical trials and research that extends back to 1964, The Sinclair Method deploys an opiate-blocking medication in a very specific way—in combination with ongoing drinking—to extinguish the addictive “software" in the brain. The de-addiction process rolls back the addictive mechanism in the brain to its original pre-addicted state— 'before' the first drink was consumed, making this program an actual cure for alcoholism.

Drs. Roy Eskapa and David Sinclair of The Sinclair Method have put together a sound scientific book that proves that with this particular method, alcoholism can be cured in more than 78 percent of patients. What's more, the treatment avoids the dangerous withdrawal symptoms, allowing patients to detox gradually and safely while they are still drinking. This removes the need for expensive and unpleasant inpatient rehabilitation programs. Actual drinking levels and cravings automaticallydecrease until over alcohol is restored. The bottom line is that patients can their drinking or stop altogether with the simple yet powerful process outlined in 'The Cure for Alcoholism'.

Including a new introduction by actress Claudia Christian about The Sinclair Method's impact on her life, updated trial information, and a letter explaining the treatment that can be given to doctors by patients, 'The Cure for Alcoholism' is a revolutionary book for anyone who wants to gain over drinking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Caveats are necessary July 3 2013
By Coolest - Published on
First off, you *must* have a genetic proclivity for alcoholism for the Sinclair Method to work well. Secondly, you must not have drunk enough for so many years that you have liver damage (nalmefene, a variant that doesn't affect one's liver, may not be FDA-approved and thus not be available yet for the U.S. market). Thirdly, a cross-addiction to benzodiazepines precludes or severely hampers the success of the Sinclair Method. Why and how this physiological impairment exists is not well understood.

The first two conditions are noted in the book but perhaps not well developed or emphasized, and the third is not mentioned at all. It is important that the method not be overblown as a cure-all for everyone with an alcohol problem because the withholding or de-emphasizing of those conditions doesn't do anyone a favor. Greater discussion of and research into the value of this method versus the failures of the method will only prove beneficial. Too many success stories and not enough stories of disappointment will not lend credence to the effectiveness and greater use of the Sinclair Method - only an honest discussion will do that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grateful for this Revolutionary Cure Nov. 13 2012
By Cazzie - Published on
I read Claudia Christian's book Babylon Confidential in which she writes so frankly about her hellish battle with alcoholism. Not only did she lose her house but, more importantly, she almost lost her life. She talks about how she stumbled upon Dr Roy Eskapa and The Cure for Alcoholism and taking the road less traveled, i.e. Naltrexone, was what made all the difference to her life.

Imagine my delight to then see that she's written the introduction to the new version of Dr Eskapa's book. I also noted that since the publication of that book, Naltrexone has been approved in the UK for alcoholism (2012). I've been following The Sinclair Method with great interest since that first book, reviews of which can be reached here:

The naysayers seem to miss out on the most important aspect of the entire method; i.e. you MUST take Naltexone EVERY time you drink or it simply will not work! For those who want to try abstinence or AA the book doesn't try to sway you. But for those who can't go down the road of abstinence it's giving an alternative route.

I myself don't even drink but have seen firsthand the difference it has made it in the lives of my friends who can't/couldn't control their drinking via traditional methods. My hope is that The Cure for Alcoholism and Babylon Confidential will reach people and spread the amazing scientific breakthroughs that Dr David Sinclair has been working on his entire life. I've seen a recent article in The Los Angeles Times:

I quit drinking in January 2013 because of the treatment in this book. I am so appreciative to those who fought to bring this information to the Public and I am sure it will be the Cure in the future. I cannot thank you enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book Aug. 25 2013
By Melissa Danner - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Amazing book that gives you step by step instructions on how to break the addiction. My husband has tried everything from hospitalization, rehab, cold turkey, nutritional iv to antibuse but to no avail. This seems to be doing the trick. His desires are down & drinking decreasing. He's starting to drink normally. Great program for those that have tried it all but had no luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a Cure July 6 2013
By Auddie H - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book carefully walks you through the origin, the efficacy, and the method of The Sinclair Method: a drug called naltrexone. Naltrexone allows you to continue drinking while simultaneously curing alcoholism--it prevents endorphins from being released such that when you drink, after a short time you no longer crave more. As long as you take a naltrexone pill before every drink, the pill will prevent the cravings.

Eskapa provides all the statistics you could ever wish to prove the efficacy of naltrexone. For example and most importantly, success rates with naltrexone are 78% or higher in curing alcohol addiction than current methods, which sit around 10-15%. Is that incredible or what?

We get various stories from several people for whom naltrexone has saved their lives, including actress Claudia Christian, who writes the witty introduction to the book. Furthermore, Eskapa lists what he calls the human costs of alcoholism-- all of the statistics and facts that will scare your pants off. For example, 1.8 million people die every year from alcoholism, it costs $187 billion per year, and 20% of suicides were alcoholics. You cannot keep living like this; The Sinclair Method can help.

The most helpful part of Eskapa's book, however, is that it explains precisely how you go about starting The Sinclair Method and has a section for physicians to understand how to help their patients begin the medicine. This book is the perfect start to curing alcoholism, and every alcoholic should give it a read in hopes of taking their lives back.
