Description of the procedure

Alcohol insertion is a method of treating alcohol addiction, which involves subcutaneous insertion of a preparation containing disulfiram (Esperal). This preparation causes the body's intolerance to alcohol, which results in unpleasant symptoms after drinking alcohol, discouraging the patient from drinking it.

How it's working?

Disulfiram contained in the patch inhibits the action of the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase, which leads to the accumulation of toxic acetaldehyde in the body when the patient consumes alcohol. This reaction manifests itself with unpleasant symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, headache, and rapid heartbeat, which is intended to deter people from drinking alcohol again.

Effects:

• Increasing motivation for sobriety
• Support in the treatment of alcohol addiction
• Reducing the risk of relapse to drinking

Indications:

• Alcohol addiction
• The need for pharmacological support in maintaining abstinence
• The patient's decision to undertake treatment and awareness of the consequences of alcohol consumption during therapy

Duration of the treatment

The alcohol tag is implanted under the skin on an outpatient basis, and the entire procedure usually takes about 20-30 minutes.
