Break Free from Addiction with the Naltrexone Implant.




Naltrexone a form of MAT, or Medication Assisted Therapy, which is an evidence-based method of treating drug addiction and alcoholism.

Naltrexone was approved by the FDA in 1984. Since that time, it has become a valuable tool for healthcare professionals to help treat people with addictions to heroin, alcohol, pain medications, and other opiates. It is one of the three medications that are approved to treat addiction in medicine today.  Naltrexone is not an opioid. It is actually an opioid receptor blocker. It completely blocks the effects of heroin and other drugs on the body and may reduce cravings when paired with a formal therapy regimen and accountability. It is not a substitute, however, for a full program of recovery, but short term studies have shown that it increases your chances of remaining opiate and alcohol free while you are adjusting to your new sober life.

You need every advantage to stay sober. This is a step in the right direction.
