Treating Alcohol Addiction with Medications that Work

The Rising Concern of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD)

Understanding Medication for Alcohol Use Disorder (MAUD) with Dr. Overton

Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) remains a critical and escalating issue in the United States, affecting millions and resulting in increasing mortality rates. Statistics reveal a concerning trend:

  • Annual Mortality: AUD is linked to about 144,000 American deaths each year.
  • Increased Consumption: During periods like the COVID-19 shutdown, nearly 60% of Americans reported a spike in alcohol intake.

Despite the magnitude of this problem, less than 1% of the over 29 million Americans suffering from Alcohol Addiction (AUD) are benefiting from Medication for Alcohol Use Disorder (MAUD).

The Promise of Medications for Alcohol Use Disorder (MAUD)

MAUD showcases remarkable effectiveness and safety, particularly when combined with standard alcohol addiction treatments. These standard treatments often include:

  • Behavioral therapies (such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
  • Support groups (like Alcoholics Anonymous)
  • Lifestyle modifications and coping strategies
