I am concerned with the number of people that are considering chemical implants in order to stop drinking alcohol. I am in close contact at work with many psychiatrist and they have pointed out that Disulphiram has many physical side effects which are very unpleasant. Individuals that take this substance are able to drink very small amount of alcohol but this is associated with a tremendous amount of fear. Indeed, many fear for their lives and become phobic. They also fear that they are losing control. The psychological effects of this drug are serious. It can, as a result, also cause depression. The Disulfiram-alcohol reaction can cause the following
throbbing head and dizziness
Hypnotherapy–that is to say, aversion therapy–is a safe form of treatment which has no side effects. I would urge anyone thinking of having one of these implants to consider psychotherapy, counselling with additional hypnosis.
