NALTREXONE IS WIDELY PRESCRIBED TO PATIENTS WHO ARE RECOVERING FROM AN ADDICTION TO PREVENT OPIOIDS OR HEROIN RELAPSE
The purpose of Vivitrol® (naltrexone) is to prevent patients from relapsing after they have successfully completed the detoxification of 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 Subxone® (buprenorphine), Probuphine® implants, and methadone, to help comfortably navigate detoxification before transitioning to naltrexone.
Vivitrol® is the naltrexone used by Symetria Recovery®. 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. Because our physicians administer naltrexone on-site at our comfortable, state-of-the-art outpatient treatment centers, there is no need for the patient to call a pharmacy for refills, join a waiting list, or worry about costly medication co-pays. Treatment with Vivitrol® is affordable, discreet, and proven to be effective when medication is supplemented by therapy, counseling, and a strong support system for the patient.
