Addiction Treatment in Knoxville

Alcohol Addiction Treatment


Vivitrol is a brand name formulation for naltrexone. It can be used to help people maintain abstinence while recovering from an opioid or alcohol dependence. Other formulations of naltrexone are available in oral tablet form, but Vivitrol is administered as an intramuscular solution once per month.

It is important people in treatment for an addiction to opioids first completely detox from these substances and then maintain abstinence for 7-10 days prior to starting Vivitrol; otherwise, this prescription medication can elicit withdrawal symptoms.
