Vivitrol and 
Long-acting naltrexone

Vivitrol® is a long-acting naltrexone that comes as an injectable solution. It is used as an opiate receptor blocking medication that prevents relapse and reduces cravings in opiate dependence. In alcohol, it decreases craving and eliminates the pleasurable effect of alcohol if it is used. The injection lasts for one month and is typically covered by insurance.

A unique service we provide at Chiron Healing Arts is an
implantable naltrexone pellet.

This lasts for 2 months, and for some individuals, it is a better option, at least initially, than Vivitrol.
