VIVITROL (NALTREXONE) TREATMENT
Since naltrexone may not eliminate cravings for opioids, naltrexone is best suited for patients who are highly motivated and who have a more stable lifestyle.
As with any pharmacological treatment approach, Vivitrol/naltrexone treatment should be complimented with a strong support system.
Active participation in one’s personal recovery program is vital in achieving long-term success.
Naltrexone is not appropriate for all patients and should only be taken under the care of a licensed physician. Some patients are better treated using buprenorphine or methadone. Please feel free to contact us at any time to discuss.
