Drug tests are most commonly used to screen for opioids, amphetamines, cannabis, cocaine, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and alcohol—but can be expanded by special order to include a whole host of other substances.
It can feel like tough times come at us hard and fast. Just when you’re getting the hang of this recovery thing, a situation comes up that shakes you to your very core. Something that makes you stare into the night sky and wonder, “Am I being tested?” But the answer is no, my friend. You’re not. You’re just living life, and handling what comes at you.
Naltrexone can completely block the euphoric and pain-relieving effects of opioids, helping to deter opioid misuse by erasing the ability of a user to get high. It begins working slower and is longer lasting, so it won’t help in an overdose, but can help to manage an opioid use disorder. And, unlike naloxone, naltrexone can also be used in the treatment of alcohol use disorders.
