Actress Claudia Christian Challenges Current Alcohol Treatment Practices-- Leverages Indiegogo for Upcoming Documentary
LOS ANGELES December 11, 2013—Actress Claudia Christian is challenging the concepts of ‘once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic’ and abstinence-only treatment programs in her upcoming documentary One Little Pill.
The film seeks to uncover why The Sinclair Method (TSM), a scientifically proven, FDA-approved pharmaceutical treatment to reverse alcohol addiction, is not being made readily available to those who need it most. TSM uses Naltrexone or Nalmefene, drugs proven to have a 78% success rate in curing alcohol dependence. Naltrexone has been FDA-approved for decades. Recently, Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) has approved Nalmefene for use as part of the NHS National Services Scotland.
“If I could share with you the emails I have received from people whose lives have been saved with The Sinclair Method you would understand why I am so desperate to see this film on TV and available to educate people worldwide. It must be finished and seen and used to help save lives.”
One Little Pill is the first project from Christian’s C Three Foundation. The film, which is already in production for television, is seeking to raise money to cover the costs of post-production.
Christian has raised more than $29,000 on Indiegogo after partnering with the international movement #GivingTuesday, when One Little Pill raised nearly $11,000 in a single day. The campaign ends on Dec. 24.
“I have devoted what's left of my life to helping others. From now on, this is my focus and my reason to get up in the morning.”
The C Three Foundation was created to help save the lives of alcoholics worldwide. We aim to educate doctors, alcoholics and family and friends of alcohol dependent people about the most successful long term treatment for alcoholism; The Sinclair Method.
