Ever thought you should drink less alcohol? Maybe you’re not at the bottom, but one leads to many. Less patient at home? Less sharp at work?
You don’t want to quit, but less would be better.
Alcoholics Anonymous could work, but opening up to strangers is daunting. Maybe you don’t believe in the philosophy or think it takes too much time.
Oar Health — www.oarhealth.com — provides private, online and telehealth services via trained clinicians who listen to your situation and prescribe naltrexone, which is FDA-approved for the treatment of alcohol problems.
I spoke with Jonathan Hunt-Glassman, CEO & co-founder of Oar Health and Dr. Joshua Lee, Oar’s clinical advisor and professor in the departments of population health and medicine at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine in New York City. He is also director of the NYU Fellowship in Addiction Medicine.
