October 16, 2009, Newsletter Issue #226: What is Campral?

Tip of the Week

Campral is a medication used to treat alcoholism. The drug reduces cravings for alcohol and preoccupation with drinking. It is the only medication of its kind currently available in 12 states in the US. The National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors is actively lobbying to have this medication available to alcoholics in recovery in every state. If your state doesn't yet have Campral, you can purchase it through a mail-order pharmacy with a doctor's prescription. Campral is NOT like Antabuse, which makes you physically ill if you drink while taking it; Campral works quietly on your brain neurotransmitters to help you stop thinking about drinking. It is an enormously valuable tool in relapse prevention.
