Vivitrol is the brand name for a specialized type of drug known as an opioid antagonist. And while this may sound similar to an opioid, it functions much differently. Rather than producing opioid-like effects, it blocks them. The medication is used to treat opioid addiction by preventing relapse in people who’ve ceased abusing drugs. It can help prevent cravings for opioids, and if relapse occurs, the opioid doesn’t produce the effects it’s consumed for. Vivitrol is also used similarly to treat alcoholism. While it doesn’t block the effects of alcohol, it can help prevent or diminish cravings for alcohol.
Vivitrol is a clear, liquid substance that comes in a prescription vial. Hypodermic needles are required for the administration of the medication.
Vivitrol injections must be maintained monthly to work effectively. Otherwise, the person may become susceptible to cravings and relapse.
No, Vivitrol is not addictive. It is used to help treat opioid addiction. But Vivitrol is not a complete treatment in itself and should always be used in conjunction with a comprehensive substance abuse treatment program.
Vivitrol is injected into the muscle, where it is slowly absorbed over the following four weeks. Vivitrol is only given in a medical setting by healthcare professionals.
