Naltrexonone (Vivitrol)

Naltrexone is an oral or injectable drug proven to prevent relapse in opioid dependent patients when used in conjunction with counseling. It blocks opioid pleasure receptors in the brain while individuals address the psychological aspect of drug misuse. Naltrexone can be taken orally or once month by injection under the brand name Vivitrol.

In order to begin either the oral or injectable naltrexone treatment, the individual must be free from opioid and alcohol use for a period of 10-14 days.
