Naltrexone cuts costs of drink problems

Oral naltrexone can significantly reduce the healthcare costs associated with alcohol. It is estimated that around one in twelve people in the U.S. has a drink problem, something that cost an estimated $185bn in 1998. Researchers, led by Henry R. Kranzler from the University of Connecticut, studied 7,959 people over a six-month period and found that people with alcohol problems who took naltrexone had significantly lower healthcare costs than people with alcohol problems who did not take the drug.
