The Counseling Center understands you have to address the mental and physical aspects of addiction. For some people, we might incorporate Medication-assisted Treatment (MAT) with therapy to help you manage dependency symptoms as you work toward long-term sobriety. For those grappling with alcohol or opioid use, we provide Vivitrol maintenance in Millbury.
How Can Vivitrol Aid With Drug And Alcohol Use Recovery?
Vivitrol is a medication prescribed to treat opioid and alcohol addiction. It blocks the brain from noticing the lack of endorphins that are usually released by alcohol or drug use. You're not as likely to use when you fail to get that endorphin rush. As time goes by, you start to feel less cravings.
If you are prescribed Vivitrol, you should get an injection monthly. Your treatment will continue until you and your Vivitrol doctor in Millbury determine you've proceeded to a certain level in your recovery. Before taking Vivitrol, you should have already detoxed from alcohol or opioids. Vivitrol is most beneficial when combined with drug and alcohol counseling like you'll get at The Counseling Center At Millbury. Or, in the event you require inpatient detox or rehab first, we can assist you in finding the proper people to talk to when you reach out to 508-433-3866.
Are You Eligible For Vivitrol Treatments?
In advance of beginning therapy at The Counseling Center, we'll determine if Vivitrol is the best choice for you. To begin taking Vivitrol, you need to be:
- 18 or older
- Recovering from opioid or alcohol addiction
- No longer on alcohol or opioids
- No longer experiencing opioid withdrawal symptoms
