You're ready to start Vivitrol treatment. What doctors prescribe it, and how can you get started?
There are safe, effective medications to help people kick opioid addiction to the curb. We offer two of these medications: Suboxone (buprenorphine) and Vivitrol (naltrexone extended release as a shot). Which is better? That depends on your own needs in opioid addiction recovery.
Just because you are taking Suboxone to treat an opioid addiction doesn’t mean that you have to suffer needlessly after surgery or injury. There are medications you can take to manage acute pain while on medication-assisted treatment (like Suboxone or other forms of buprenorphine) for opioid addiction.
