TIP 49: Incorporating Alcohol Pharmacotherapies Into Medical Practice


TIP 49, Incorporating Alcohol Pharmacotherapies Into Medical Practice, provides clinical guidelines for the proper use of medications in the treatment of alcohol use disorders. The underlying objective is to expand access to information about the effective use of these medications, not only in specialty substance abuse treatment programs but also in physicians’ offices and other general medical care settings. The TIP includes discussions of acamprosate, disulfiram, oral naltrexone, and extended-release injectable naltrexone. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved these medications for treating alcohol use disorders. The TIP explains each medication’s history, the reasons for its use, how to use it, who should use it, and other clinical information about the medication.
