Vivitrol Is Revolutionizing Addiction Treatment

 

Vivitrol is an injectable medication that is used to treat alcohol and opiate abuse. The active ingredient in VIVITROL® (naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension) — naltrexone — works as a “blocker.” It attaches to certain receptors in your brain and blocks the pleasurable feelings associated with drinking alcohol and taking opioids.

It blocks other opioids from acting on the receptors in the brain and blocks cravings. By blocking the effects of other opioids it takes away the pleasurable effect, which can help with preventing relapse. Although it is not fully understood as to why an opioid antagonist works in treating alcoholism, it is believed that Vivitrol blocks the pleasurable effects of alcohol by blocking the release of endorphins caused by alcohol. This treatment can help you stop misusing opioids and alcohol and, when combined with counseling, can help you rebuild your life.
