Dublin-headquarted biopharma Alkermes has launched a new website to offer education about alcohol dependence. Myrelationshipwithalcohol.com offers educational information about alcohol dependence, an interactive questionnaire developed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) designed to assess personal drinking patterns, and a discussion guide to help start a conversation with healthcare providers about the disease and treatment options.
"As one of the few companies working in this disease area, we felt compelled to develop a resource to help people better understand alcohol dependence," commented Blair Jackson, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer of Alkermes. ”Despite its prevalence, understanding of the disease itself and awareness of approved treatment options that exist remain low. Our aim is to provide people who may be living with the disease, or those who are caring for people living with it, with information to help empower them to speak with a healthcare provider.”
