Our Say When results were recently published which showed statistically significant promise that oral naltrexone taken on an as-needed basis could reduce alcohol use. It was Dr. Santos' study that inspired me to explore naltrexone.
I started the medication with the intention of harm reduction/reducing my alcohol consumption. My journey eventually took me to taking naltrexone on a daily basis. I took the medication for 9 months and I realized I didn't need it anymore. This was combined with group support and 1:1 individualized therapy around my substance use. I celebrated my 7 years sober on October 16th, 2022.
We all have different relationships with alcohol and other substances. This was mine. Thank you, Milo.
