Vivitrol Treatment

Expert, Medically Supervised Vivitrol Treatment in Austin

Vivitrol is one of the latest and most promising long-acting opioid maintenance medications. The brand-name for the drug Naltrexone, it is also used to treat certain types of alcoholism and relapse prevention from opioids. The drug is a once-a-month injectable that can be administered by an eligible addiction-trained physician. Vivitrol’s extended-release formula means a significantly diminished potential for abuse and limited possibility of tolerance and subsequent overdose. Although these two factors are possible. Recovery Unplugged Texas is a trained and experienced Vivitrol treatment provider and we are ready to help you or your loved one see if this medication is right for you. Vivitrol should administered only after medically supervised detoxification and post-acute withdrawal management.

How Does Vivitrol Work?

Vivitrol blocks the effects of opioids for about 28 days after the injection. Patients are given a much lighter dose of opioids that dissipates within a month. This helps mitigate withdrawal symptoms and make the long-term detox process easier. The pain and sickness of withdrawal is a leading cause of relapse. Drugs like Vivitrol help to lessen the effects of these symptoms so patients can maintain their sobriety. The body must be fully detoxed from opioids for seven to ten days (and alcohol for at least 24 hours) prior to the administering of Vivitrol injections, otherwise severe withdrawal symptoms may occur. Once the Vivitrol shot is administered, it isn’t possible to get high or feel any effects from heroin for a period of 30 days.

Who Should Not Partake in Vivitrol Treatment?

  • Have Not Completed Detox
  • Are Taking Opioid Analgesics
  • Are Currently Suffering from Serious Withdrawal
  • Are Hypersensitive to Naltrexone

It’s imperative that you speak with your physician or treatment provider prior to starting any opioid maintenance medication.
