Episode Info: In this episode we meet Katie Lain, an advocate and mentor for the Sinclair Method, which is a means for treating Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) based on the principal of pharmacological extinction. Those who use this method to treat AUD will take the drug Naltrexone one hour prior to drinking. Naltrexone is an opiate blocker that over time removes one’s craving for alcohol. Katie started with TSM in August of 2017, and she found the experience to be personally transformative. Realizing that more people need to know about this method for treating AUD, Katie bravely went public with her story. Through her YouTube Channel and website, Katie has not only helped spread the word about TSM, but she has built a supportive community for others.

I’m so excited to be here. 01:22 John: Did I do a good job of briefly describing The Sinclair Method?  01:25 Katie: Yeah, you’ve described it very succinctly and that’s essentially the ABCs of how it works when someone has never heard about it and they want to understand just the very basics of what this method is, and I’m happy obviously to dive into more of the fundamentals of it as well as we get through this. 01:42 John: Well, you have done a lot of work on this.
