How Does It Work and Is It Safe?

How Vivitrol Treatment Works

Vivitrol is a prescription medication used in medication-assisted treatment for alcoholism and opioid dependence. Patients are administered Vivitrol via a monthly injection by a qualified healthcare professional.

In most cases, when taken as directed, Vivitrol has proved to be safe for both short-term and long-term use. But as is the case with virtually all prescription medications, Vivitrol can cause side effects. Your healthcare provider can discuss these side effects in specific detail with you, and will work with you to decide if this is the right medication for you.

Please note that a key ingredient in Vivitrol, naltrexone, is not safe for use by pregnant women, and Vivitrol cannot be taken by individuals who have used any opioids in the past seven days. In addition, Vivitrol increases your risk for liver damage, so it is important to complete a full physical examination prior to taking this medication.

Effectiveness of Treatment

The Effectiveness of Vivitrol Treatment

By engaging in a comprehensive treatment program that includes the monitored use of Vivitrol, you are more likely to achieve long-term sobriety. Many individuals have had their recovery compromised by relapse. And while relapse is a common part of the recovery process, sometimes it can have a lasting negative impact.

Vivitrol is effective because it lessens the chance of relapse, mitigates cravings, and prevents the painful withdrawal symptoms that can set in after you stop your opioid or alcohol use. These effects make this medication a powerful and important tool for overcoming addiction.

Benefits of Treatment & Counseling

The Benefits of Vivitrol Treatment & Counseling

Vivitrol has helped many individuals defeat addiction. But it must be remembered that this medication is only one component of a comprehensive treatment plan. While Vivitrol might help you keep your behaviors under control, it will not address the underlying issues that may have contributed to your drug use in the first place.

When considering medication-assisted treatment, know that you will have greater success if you include individual and group counseling in your recovery plan. These supports will allow you to process your emotions and experiences one-on-one with a licensed mental health professional, and receive support from peers who are traveling a similar path.

How You Can Be Successful in a Medication-Assisted Treatment Program: First, understand that treatment is just one part of a long-term effort to achieve and maintain sobriety. The process will require you to make a commitment to your health and your recovery, and then make the changes that will be necessary to turn that commitment into a reality.

You will be required to take an honest look at the life you have been leading, acknowledge the unhealthy decisions you have made, and prepare to make meaningful changes. When you enter treatment, do so with the mindset that you are finally ready to stop making excuses and start making the real and lasting changes that will support a healthier tomorrow. The road may not be smooth, straight, or obstacle-free, but if you are committed to the process and dedicated to achieving your goals, the journey will be more than worth the effort.

How to Support Your Loved One During Medication-Assisted Treatment: Watching a loved one struggle with an opioid addiction can be painful, frustrating, and heartbreaking. But do not think for a minute that the support you have shown your loved one has been wasted.

Your dedication may be the reason that they finally enter treatment, and your care will encourage their continued success. When your loved one enters a medication-assisted treatment program, educate yourself about what treatment will entail, prepare yourself to support the changes that they will be making, and look into getting involved with a support group of your own.

Your life has been affected by your loved one’s addiction, and in order to be most helpful during their recovery, you need to make sure that you do not neglect your own physical, mental, or emotional health. Your loved one’s treatment center can be an excellent resource for the information and assistance you need to help yourself and support your loved one.
