When you are prescribed VIVITROL, it is important to try to help avoid delays in getting your VIVITROL medication.

By following a few steps and working closely with your healthcare provider and the specialty or other pharmacy, you have the resources you need to help you stay on track in your recovery journey.

To receive your VIVITROL injection:

Your doctor prescribes VIVITROL® and sends to the specialty pharmacy.
With your healthcare provider:
  • Complete the specialty pharmacy form
  • Provide your insurance card (if applicable)
  • Discuss the VIVITROL® Co-pay Savings Program
Your healthcare provider will then send the form to the specialty pharmacy.
A specialty pharmacy fills your VIVITROL® prescription.
The specialty or other pharmacy:
  • Confirms insurance coverage with your health plan
  • Applies any co-pay savings you are eligible for
Expect a call from your pharmacy to coordinate the delivery of your first prescription.
Your VIVITROL® prescription is delivered to your doctor.
You will be contacted by the pharmacy to verify:
  • Payment
  • Shipping

Upon approval, the prescription will be filled and shipped to your healthcare provider’s office.
Your doctor administers your VIVITROL® injection and schedules your next appointment.
  • Visit your healthcare provider to receive your VIVITROL injection on your appointment date
