Long-term, high-dose disulfiram in the treatment of alcohol abuse.

Author information

  • 1Stapleford Centre, London.

Abstract

A patient who had experienced most of the standard methods of managing alcohol abuse found that during 11 years of treatment, the most consistently effective intervention has been the taking of disulfiram under family supervision. He has received 600 mg daily almost continuously for over six years without side-effects. Smaller doses do not have an adequate deterrent effect.
