The urge to use opioids, even when you want to stop, is related to craving the drug’s effects. Unfortunately, if you have an addiction to opioids and are stuck in the endless cycle of continually seeking that “high” feeling, it can feel as though you may not be able to break free. You may have even tried to stop using opioids before, only to relapse back into the addiction.
The Symetria Recovery team understands that opioid addiction may have changed how your brain functions so that you constantly feel the need to use. We also recognize that your withdrawal symptoms may be so intense that you start using opioids just to stop the pain. Most people find that it is nearly impossible to quit using opioids without professional help. That’s why our naltrexone treatment program is an effective treatment approach to help you end dependence on opioids.
Our Naltrexone Treatment Program
The purpose of Vivitrol® (naltrexone) is to prevent patients from relapsing after they have completed the detoxification of the withdrawal process. Because Vivitrol® is exclusively designed for patients who have already completed detoxification, Vivitrol® is not administered until later in the recovery process. Patients may receive other medications, such as Suboxone® (buprenorphine) and methadone, to help comfortably navigate detoxification before transitioning to naltrexone.
Naltrexone therapy requires monthly injections that block desirable opioid effects to help thwart opioid use. This medication works by binding to the opioid receptors in the brain and concurrently blocking the typical effects other drugs produce, such as euphoria or sedation. Naltrexone is also reported to help curb those opioid cravings that can make abstinence so difficult for someone in recovery. If a person relapses while taking Vivitrol® therapy injections, they will not usually feel the effects of the substance.
Vivitrol® is the medication used at our naltrexone treatment center. It is slowly released into the body through monthly injections. Our experienced physicians safely inject the medication for the patient, which minimizes the risk of accidental patient injury.
Benefits of Our Naltrexone Treatment Program
The naltrexone treatment program at Symetria Recovery can be quite beneficial for those who immerse themselves in recovery. Some of the numerous benefits include:
- Our comfortable, state-of-the-art outpatient treatment centers put you at ease throughout your experience.
- Because the medication is administered on-site, there is no need for you to call a pharmacy for refills, join a waiting list, or worry about costly medication co-pays.
- Treatment with Vivitrol® is affordable and discreet.
- Addiction treatment is also proven to be most effective when medication is supplemented by therapy, counseling, and a strong support system for the patient.
The high level of care you will receive at Symetria Recovery allows you to focus your recovery process. Our team is proud of our commitment to outstanding addiction treatment. One of the qualities that make our naltrexone treatment program so effective our comprehensive approach to treatment.
Our Comprehensive Treatment Approach
Recovery from opioid addiction is not something that happens overnight. Even though medication-assisted therapy (MAT) with Vivitrol® treatment is an effective component of your recovery, it is not a cure-all. Complete, successful recovery can only come from tending to the psychological or emotional elements of addiction and prior substance abuse.
At Symetria Recovery®, each patient who comes to us gets a full assessment to determine the best treatment plan. Whether you or a loved one is seeking help, we will determine if treatment with Vivitrol® is appropriate, but we will also build a therapeutic plan around MAT.
