Vivitrol for Opioid Use Disorder
The opioid crisis has wreaked havoc across the country, leaving thousands of people addicted to opioids, struggling to find treatment, and dying from overdoses. The only solution many states have found to this crisis is to keep people on opioids, leading to more addiction and death. A new solution has emerged: Vivitrol, which blocks the effect of opioids and blocks the urge to relapse. It has effectively treated opioid use disorder, saving lives and reversing the opioid epidemic in its early stages.
Vivitrol for Alcohol
Alcohol addiction is a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition affecting millions across the country. For some, alcohol is a fun relaxer or social lubricant. But for others, alcohol becomes the primary focus of their lives, to the point where it takes over their family, job, and social obligations. This alcohol dependence, sometimes referred to as alcoholism, is a disease that must be treated with long-term addiction treatment. Fortunately, there is a medication that can provide a safe and effective way to help people quit alcohol addiction: Vivitrol.
Vivitrol has been shown to reduce the number of days that recovering alcoholics engage in heavy drinking and the likelihood that a patient would continue drinking during the treatment period.
