Naltrexone implant maintenance
Why choose Naltrexone implant?
- To protect opioid receptors from drugs by using a heroin blocker
- To decrease cravings for heroin and other psychological problems common in abstinence

- Avoids the need to supervise Naltrexone and the conflicts it can cause
- Makes it impossible to 'forget' or to change one's mind to take Naltrexone pill
- Less Naltrexone quantities are required because of stomach and liver transit is excluded
- Patient is constantly aware of the pellet under the skin and is psychologically aware of the protection against of drugs, he feels more peaceful and confident.
Maintain stable remission at the beginning of the recovery process
Our patients from UK, Ireland and USA prefer cost-effective heroin detox followed by long-acting Naltrexone implants (Naltrexone pellets for 6 months cost 1200 GBP and for 12 months 1900 GBP). The opioid receptor blocker allows them to immediately calm down, relax and not worry about heroin addiction relapse or taking care of their daily Revia, Antaxon, Nalorex or Naltrexone hydrochloride tablet intake.
Almost immediately after the Naltrexone pellet fitting, the majority of patients report improved mood and decreased heroin cravings. Then calmness, confidence, a good night's sleep, healthy appetite and an optimistic view of the future follow. Many quickly begin positive planning for the future and start working on making their dreams come true. Naltrexone implant maintenance helps to stop feelings of doubt and being afraid of the future. It helps people stop thinking of heroin, knowing that the road back to drugs is closed.
In addition to long-acting Naltrexone implants, there are liquid formulas of opiate blocker available — Naltrexone injections. Vivitrol and Naltrexone (in oil) injections provide 1 month of heroin blockade. Thus, Vivitrol injections should be administrated 12 times a year. Naltrexone injectable is recommended in cases when subcutaneous Naltrexone pellet is contraindicated.
