Dear Help
Yes you can have antabuse inplantation - talk to your GP about this. You also have to try to find something that will work for your Bipolar - have you been to a psychiatrist yet? Patients often "self medicate" with alcohol when they are feeling bad due to anxiety or depression or bipolar disease...
