The management of alcohol abuse has since been a challenge, but with effective application of Naltrexone, commonly known as ReVia and Vivitrol, has been known to produce positive results for alcohol addicts (Patten, Schultz & Berlau, 2018). In addition, tranquilizer such as Benzodiazepines in correct doses also helps manage the withdrawal effects accustomed with alcohol abuse (Antonelli et al., 2018). Doctors have also recommended methadone as a viable treatment program to manage the pain that accompanies those who abuse alcohol and other substances such as heroine.
