Vivitrol (depo-naltrexone) is a monthly non-narcotic injectable medication that is useful for the treatment of opioid addiction and alcohol addiction. Vivitrol has been clinically proven to reduce the probability of relapse. For those suffering from an opioid addiction, Vivitrol may be initiated only after opioid detoxification. Vivitrol may also be used by patients who have completely tapered off of buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, generics) to prevent relapse. Antagonists like Vivitrol are non-addictive and do not lead to physical dependence. Vivitrol blocks opioid receptors in the brain for one month at a time. Like Suboxone, Vivitrol is a part of a complete treatment program at Victory Recovery Partners (VRP) that also includes behavioral health services.
