What is Vivitrol?
Vivitrol (naltrexone) is a non addictive medication that blocks the effects of opioid medication, including pain relief or feelings of well-being that can lead to opioid abuse. It is commonly used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to address opioid use disorders. Unlike Suboxone (buprenorphine) and methadone, Vivitrol is not an opioid agonist/partial agonist (opioid like medication), which does not cause physiologic tolerance.
Vivitrol injection is also used to treat alcoholism by reducing your urge to drink alcohol. This may help you drink less or stop drinking altogether. Vivitrol is commonly used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for those trying to abstain from alcohol.
