VIVITROL® (viv-i-trol) (naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension) is a prescription injectable medicine used to:
- treat alcohol dependence. You should stop drinking before starting VIVITROL.
- prevent relapse to opioid dependence, after opioid detoxification. This means that if you take opioids or opioid-containing medicines, you must stop taking them before you start receiving VIVITROL. To be effective, treatment with VIVITROL must be used with other alcohol or drug recovery programs such as counseling and/or group therapy.
At Veritas Health, PLLC we recommend Vivitrol, a long acting injectable form of Naltrexone that last 30 days.
