How do I know if Vivitrol is right for me?

Vivitrol is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe option for treating opioid addiction. Administered via injection once per month, Vivitrol helps prevent relapse once a person has detoxed from opioids like heroin, morphine, or prescription pain relievers.

If you or a loved one is considering using medication as part of the recovery process, it’s always important to speak with a knowledgeable provider to determine whether Vivitrol is right for you.

Can I become addicted to Vivitrol?

Medical professionals strictly monitor the amount and frequency of your Vivitrol dosage, so the likelihood of becoming addicted is quite low.

Will Vivitrol show up on a drug screening?

Vivitrol is not likely to cause a positive result on a typical drug test. Specific drug screens that detect Vivitrol are required in order to identify traces of this medication.

How long will I need to be on Vivitrol?

The length of time a person receives treatment that includes Vivitrol will depend on that individual’s unique needs. Vivitrol is proven safe for both short- and long-term use, so you may receive monthly Vivitrol injections for just a few months, or continue with this medication for a longer period of time.

Does Vivitrol interact with other drugs or medications?

While taking Vivitrol, it is strongly recommended that you avoid consuming alcohol or opioids because reactions can occur. Additionally, it’s important to report any prescription or over-the-counter medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements to your doctor before beginning Vivitrol injections.

What if I no longer wish to take Vivitrol? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

When you receive a Vivitrol injection, this medication will remain in your body for about one month. But because of its extended-release properties, you cannot abruptly switch from Vivitrol to another medication used to treat opioid dependence without first having a conversation with your doctor.

What is the cost of Vivitrol treatment?

At Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers, the cost of Vivitrol can vary. To learn more about how much you will pay for Vivitrol injections and the other therapeutic treatment options we have available, contact one of our helpful intake counselors.
