Fighting an alcohol addiction is difficult for everyone the family and friendship circle, not just for the addict themselves. Although it’s also a psychological issue which can’t be treated directly by pharmaceuticals, there are drugs that are being used to help addicts get sober.
In the UK and the US the drug – Antabuse (disulfiram) is used in form of a daily pill. This means that staying sober is still a choice, and a difficult choice to maintain through willpower alone.
However, in Eastern Europe scientists took things a step further and found a way to make it work non-stop for at least 8-12 months. Instead of using a daily pill, we administer an implant that goes under the skin.
How Does It Work?
Antabuse is a powerful drug that stops the body from producing enzymes that breakdown the alcohol in your system which then causes a powerful reaction with an amount as small as a sip. It works within minutes and with being an implant, not a pill that you take willingly once a day, it works at all times. By doing so, even the smallest amount of alcohol in your system would mean a reaction similar to a hangover but much more severe. Headaches, dizziness, excessive sweating, drop in blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, hyperventilation or even extreme anxiety are normal and they would continue to occur for hours on end.
The effects of drinking alcohol while having an implant under your skin can last up to 10-12 hours and they start just few minutes after taking a sip of alcohol. Antabuse is effective on anything consumed which has alcohol as part of its ingredients, such as vodka, beer, cider, chocolates laced with alcohol or even some medicines that are based on low alcohol dosage. It’s a really powerful drug and one that can get you feel disgusted by alcohol. And that’s the point.
Pro’s and Con’s
One of the main pros of an anti-booze implant is that it works at all times and you can’t simply take it out whenever you want. That way it’s much more effective than a pill which you could throw away the moment you feel like you need a drink or switch to vitamins to keep pretending that you’re taking care of the problem. That’s not all though. Antabuse works for about 12 months straight which means it stays in your system longer than an average rehab treatment. You can easily incorporate it in your program, starting from the detox and then going in with a disulfiram implant to form an aversion towards alcohol while you try to solve your problems and figure out that alcohol is not an answer.
If there is one disadvantage of the anti-booze implant it would be that you can have it surgically removed if you truly wanted to. There are no laws that say an addict can be forced to get an implant, go to rehab and quit drinking. Other than that, there’s no harm in getting n Antabuse implant and there are so many positives that you can get out of it.
What is it?
Antabuse has been used as an implant in Eastern European countries as a way of eliminating the struggles of an addict at the beginning of their road to sobriety. When you have to take a pill every day, someone should be there to remind you and even shove it down your throat if necessary! With the implant, there’s no such risk. The addict has to be willing to go through the procedure and they can just as easily go to the doctor to get it taken out, but it’s still far more effective.
The main idea behind the Antabuse implant is to make the person despise alcohol, which has been their problem solver for a long time. People who struggle with giving up drinking all by themselves need that push which would tell them that alcohol is not actually an answer and that it can harm them and still not mask the psychological pain it used to.
