Naltrexone Treatment

  • Naltrexone is a medication-assisted treatment option that is also FDA approved to help individuals overcome opioid and alcohol addiction. It works by blocking the effects of opioid receptors reducing cravings and decreasing the likelihood of relapse.
  • Naltrexone is not addictive and does not cause withdrawal symptoms with the stop of use.
  • Unlike methadone and buprenorphine, naltrexone is an opioid antagonist, meaning it does not provide any opioid or sedative effects or produce feelings of euphoria. This makes it a safer option for individuals who are at a higher risk of overdose.
  • Naltrexone treatment is administered by a licensed qualified physician once a patient is fully detoxed and deemed medically appropriate to begin Naltrexone therapy. Typically combined with counseling and behavioral therapy, Naltrexone provides a comprehensive approach to addiction recovery.
