More than 2 million Americans struggle with addiction to prescription opioids or street opiates such as heroin. Suboxone has proven to be an effective treatment option for opioid addiction when administered by a medical professional. Its use for this purpose was approved in 2002 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), following the opioid crisis. Suboxone treatment can relieve pain and reduce the effects of opioid withdrawal symptoms.
VIVITROL® (naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension) is a non-addictive, once-monthly treatment proven to prevent relapse in opioid dependent patients when used with counseling following detoxification.1
Before starting VIVITROL, you must be opioid-free for a minimum of 7-14 days to avoid sudden opioid withdrawal.
