Within the last month my drinking has decreased to within recommended limits. In May I was a daily, excessive drinker and now I have a couple of drinks a couple of nights a week. Like a normal person. Without trying. It’s weird after a decade + of struggle."

"I started [the Alcure program] when it became apparent I could not go more than 2-3 days without drinking before the voice in my head told me 'one drink wouldn't hurt.'

T., after 59 days in the Alcure program.

K., after 45 days in the Alcure program.
"I have to say that I was a bit skeptical that this would work for me. The promises seemed too good to be true, but I am sitting here as proof that it really does work. I could go on and on, but I think you must have heard this all before. But in a sentence, my future looks so much brighter! Thank you."
K., after 143 days in the Alcure program, successfully completing it and moving onto maintenance use of naltrexone.

A., after 6 months in the Alcure program, successfully completing it and moving onto maintenance use of the medication.

C., after 3 months in the Alcure program.

T., after starting the Alcure program and reviewing our Module One set of tutorials.
Jim: "I’m glad you’re distracted from drinking .. "

D., after completing the Alcure program in 7 months, and then 3 months into maintenance use of naltrexone.
"I signed up with Alcure specifically for the purpose of finding a prescriber of naltrexone. That process was quick and easy and got me exactly what l needed when l needed it for my recovery .. Thank you for all of your help. Alcure and all of its staff have truly and positively affected my recovery."
S., after 4 months in the Alcure program.
"Hi Jim, I'm happy to say that the program helped me to gain a greater level of control over my drinking. The naltrexone allowed me to better understand the effect the chemicals within alcohol were having on my brain and to recognize those feelings when making decisions about my drinking. When combined with other factors (taking actions to improve my mental health, removing negative variables from my environment, leveraging exercise, etc.), I think the program helped me to get to a point where I no longer feel the need to drink more than 1 or 2 drinks at any given time. I've also cut down on the frequency that I drink. Most importantly I feel a greater sense of control."
A., after 7 months in the Alcure program.
I'm doing really good I won't need anything else. So happy to find you guys."
L., after 74 days in the Alcure program.
"Hi, Dr. Green, I just wanted to tell you how well the medication is working for me. I’ve been 100% compliant and am drinking much less. Most of the time I’m having only one drink per day, if I even finish it. Prior to starting the meds, I didn’t drink a whole lot but was drinking throughout the day. That has pretty much stopped."
C., after 38 days in the Alcure program.
"Hi Dr. Green. Everything [is] going well by the way. My compliance has been great and it's making a difference."
S., after 26 days in the Alcure program.
Jim: "Hi [E.], just checking in regarding your progress..."
E: "Hey Jim, I actually have decided to stay completely abstinent and will no longer need Alcure. Thank you for all your help."
E., after 163 days in the Alcure program starting at a baseline of 10 drinks a day, 7 days a week. Now he doesn't drink at all.
"Hi Jim, I watched all your Module One videos over the weekend and want to let you know I found them very helpful and well done. They are respectful, credible, clear, articulate and I enjoyed many of your word choices (pummel, buoyant) and analogies. Your tone was professional, yet genuine and engaging. I’m sure I will go back to them again and again as I continue on this journey. PS...Cliff [Dr. Fields] is great!"
K., just after starting the Alcure program.
"Alcohol-free days began to popcorn across my calendar last month. I go many days in a row now without thinking about having a drink. The great part for me is that I am not working very hard at all. This has been nearly effortless."
C., after 110 days in the Alcure program.
[Dr. Fields] "Good morning C. .. I am interested in how you are doing and would like to speak with you briefly at your leisure."
C., "I'm doing great. My life has totally changed since being on these. It's amazing. I rarely drink anymore and because of the pills I never drink too much."
[Dr. Fields] "I will send in the prescription right now. I am very pleased with your results."
C., "OMG life changing. I feel better than ever. My career is booming, relationship great, been working with a trainer to get back in shape. Definitely highly recommend."
C., after 10 months in the Alcure program.
"Cliff [Dr. Fields] .. Needless to say I am immensely grateful for your support and guidance getting me to this place. Thank you!"
K., after 18 months in the Alcure program starting at a baseline of 30 drinks per week, an average craving rating of 8 on a scale of 0-10, and persistent difficulty stopping drinking once starting.
"I am thrilled with my progress on the program (less than 1 drink a week as I enter my fifth month) and cannot say enough about the information, respectful approach and guidance Alcure has provided .. The one good thing about this terrible year  is your program. With deep gratitude and appreciation."
K., after 5 months in the Alcure program and starting at a baseline of drinking 7 times per week, 3 drinks each time on average for about 3 hours, and reporting difficulty stopping drinking once starting.
"I think it really tamed my desire for heavy alcohol (i.e. tequila). I really toned down to 2 or 3 glasses of wine per night.. much more controlled. I think it also helped me shed 10 pounds! If I go back to old habits, I will be back in touch!"
L., after 106 days in the Alcure program and starting at a baseline of drinking 7 times per week, 5 drinks each time on average for about 3 hours, and reporting a 10 out of 10 craving just before starting to drink.
"Hi James, I am so happy with the results of naltrexone! I started the program on October 1, 2020. I was 100% compliant with taking naltrexone and so hopeful it would work. I had great support from Dr. Fields. I reached out to him about once a month, often when I felt discouraged about lack of progress. He gave me the confidence and patience to keep going .. I finished reading the book 'The Power of Habit' and I wrote down my habit loop. I paid attention to my cue, I replaced the routine with soda and tea and I didn't crave alcohol. I am able to drink like a "normal" person now. I am so glad to be able to drink socially or when I want to for any reason and not out of 'need'. Thank you!"
K., after 7 months and 28 days in the Alcure program and starting at a baseline of drinking 7 times per week, 5 drinks each time on average for about 5 hours, and reporting an 8 out of 10 craving just before starting to drink.
I’m coming up on my six months of using medication and have really noticed a difference."
M., starting at a baseline of drinking 3 times per week and consuming an average of 10 drinks each time, an average craving rating of 7 out of 10 and reporting difficulty stopping drinking once started.
"When I started naltrexone I was buying approximately 3 or 4 750 ml bottles [of wine] each week. I’m now at 1 or 2 per week. I tried alcohol-free days but found I tend to drink more the days following so I’m not there yet but I’m happy with my successes so far. I don’t really feel cravings for alcohol or the preoccupation of thought surrounding drinking."
E., after 67 days in the Alcure program.
"Good morning. I am doing REALLY well currently, with my drinking issues very reliably under control. The Alcure system has definitely worked for me and will provide a pathway for continued success moving forward."
D., after 4 months and 9 days in the Alcure program.
