One area of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) proving to be effective at Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles is the use of non-narcotic medications for opiate craving reduction. Qualified individuals seeking abstinence from opiates may begin using these post-detox when the body is free of opiates. Vivitrol is one of these medications that has produced very good results and is helping many individuals on their journey to long-term recovery.
Vivitrol is Naltrexone that is taken by injection and remains effective for 30 days. Opiate cravings are reduced by Vivitrol, which means that a major relapse trigger is removed. This gives Vivitrol patients a much better opportunity to achieve long-term recovery, and helps them focus on drug addiction treatment. Vivitrol can be taken once or on a monthly basis, depending on an individual’s needs, and can also be used for alcohol craving reduction.
