Naltrexone can help to reduce alcohol cravings, but it does not completely stop them. Naltrexone works by blocking the effects of opioids and endorphins in the brain, which are associated with the pleasurable effects of alcohol and the craving for it. By reducing the craving for alcohol, Naltrexone can help people reduce their drinking or maintain abstinence.

Studies have shown that Naltrexone can be effective in reducing alcohol cravings in people with alcohol use disorder. However, the degree to which Naltrexone reduces alcohol cravings can vary depending on the individual and their specific circumstances. Some people may experience a significant reduction in cravings, while others may experience only a partial reduction.

It is important to note that Naltrexone should be used in combination with other forms of treatment, such as counseling or support groups, to achieve the best outcomes in the treatment of alcohol use disorder. It is also important to talk to a healthcare provider to determine if Naltrexone is right for you and to discuss potential side effects and drug interactions.
