Thanks Debra

She is on the tablets now and her psyc said that the implants are not being done anymore? Who is the doctor,perhaps the psyc has the incorrect info.

Thanks

Hi Sonja

i managed to track down a doctor yesterday who does the implant in cape town.

i am not sure where you are located but surely he will know of colleagues in other areas that does the implant.

let me know if you require the information.

Good Luck with your sister!

Regards,
Debra

Thanks Debra, that is amazing to know. My sister has been battling with alcoholism for a number of years now, and this is really good to know next time she goes to see a doctor.

Thanks again!

Hi Sonja

Antabuse is an implant done under the skin which helps alcoholics to " stop"  drinking.

it does not deter cravings, but basically your immune/digestive system does not break down the alcohol once consumed and you get very severe side effects. it is so severe it can make you stop drinking altogether.

there''s alot on the internet about it but im struggling to find a doctor/hospital in the western cape that actually does in the implant.

thanks
Debra
