“Collaboration between substance abuse treatment providers and primary care physicians and clinicians on behalf of alcohol-dependent individuals is key to obtaining the best treatment outcomes for this chronic, relapsing disease.”

Patients must be assessed for Vivitrol treatment by qualified medical personnel. Tarzana Treatment Centers’ alcohol and drug treatment
program has licensed medical professionals on staff daily. This minimizes the time between decision and assessment. Every step like this toward getting the actual injection helps a patient to resist thoughts suggesting to not go through with the decision.
Vivitrol is available by prescription only, which is the next step toward injection. Our daily staff of medical personnel includes licensed prescribers. This minimizes another possible waiting period, and may even eliminate it if the assessor and prescriber is the same person. The only step left is to receive the Vivitrol injection, and we keep a stock ready for new patients.
Collaboration between providers is easy at Tarzana Treatment Centers because they all work in the same facility and use the same software to track patient care. Nobody can promise that you will get a Vivitrol injection the same day you make the decision, but we make it possible.
Telemedicine services are also available with online medical care, online mental health treatment, and online alcohol and drug treatment.
