Imagine having a prescription injection that could cancel out those cravings? The Banyan Treatment Center Pompano location is excited to announce they are now offering Vivitrol®, a prescription monthly injection that does just that. The prescribed monthly injection is given for alcohol and opioid dependence. Vivitrol® combined with substance abuse treatment can aid in the effectiveness of sustained recovery.
Vivitrol® attaches to the opiate and alcohol receptors in the brain and blocks the euphoric feelings associated with ingesting these substances. This prescription injection is huge for relapse prevention. Research shows that after taking Vivitrol® for six months alongside therapy the cravings significantly decreased and the individual is much less likely to relapse due to a physical dependence.
