RECOVERY

VIVITROL® (naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension) is a non-addictive, once-monthly treatment proven to prevent relapse in opioid dependent patients when used with counseling following detoxification.1

Before starting VIVITROL, you must be opioid-free for a minimum of 7-14 days to avoid sudden opioid withdrawal.

WHAT IS VIVITROL?

VIVITROL is a prescription injectable medicine used to:

  • Prevent relapse to opioid dependence after opioid detox. You must stop taking opioids or other opioid-containing medications before starting VIVITROL.
  • Treat alcohol dependence. You should stop drinking before starting VIVITROL.

To be effective, VIVITROL must be used with other alcohol or drug recovery programs such as counseling.

It is not known if VIVITROL is safe and effective in children.
