What is Antabuse?

Antabuse, also known as Disulfiram, is a drug used to support the treatment of chronic alcoholism by producing an acute sensitivity to alcohol, which results in a highly unpleasant reaction when the patient under treatment ingests even small amounts of alcohol.

Why Should You Take Antabuse?


When you accept Antabuse therapy, you acknowledge to yourself the need for temporary and, perhaps, long-term assistance in solving a drinking problem. It lets you and the physician know that you have determined to put your life in order. Most importantly, it can help you "buy time" while you come to grips with ways in which you rebuild your life without alcohol. Your total cooperation with the physician is, of course, one of the most important factors in a successful recovery.


Will Antabuse Cure Alcoholism?


No. There is no magic answer to alcoholism. Antabuse is only an aid to the overall achievement of sobriety. When you accept treatment with Antabuse, you reinforce your acknowledgement that alcohol is a problem for you.
