Vivitrol Treatment

a client talks to a doctor about vivitrol treatmentVivitrol is a medication used to prevent relapse in individuals who are recovering from opioid or alcohol addiction. It works by blocking the euphoric effects and cravings associated with these substances, thereby aiding in the recovery process. We utilize Vivitrol treatment at Sophros Recovery Tampa as part of our medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program.

The team at Sophros Recovery knows that MAT is not the right fit for everyone and should not be a standalone treatment method. We utilize MAT for clients when appropriate in conjunction with therapy, case management services, and alumni support. Call 813.592.7053 to enroll in our comprehensive program today.

How Vivitrol Works

Vivitrol is a monthly injection that contains the active ingredient naltrexone. It works by blocking the opioid receptors in the brain, preventing opioids or alcohol from producing their desired effects. By doing so, Vivitrol reduces cravings and decreases the risk of relapse. This medication has a low risk of physical dependence or withdrawal symptoms, making it a good option for many clients.

The medication has several benefits for individuals in recovery, including:

  • Reduced cravings for opioids or alcohol
  • Decreased risk of relapse
  • Little to no potential for abuse or misuse
  • Monthly administration, promoting consistency in treatment

At Sophros Recovery Tampa, we believe that every individual’s journey to recovery is unique and should be treated as such. Our compassionate team works with each client to determine the best course of treatment, whether it includes Vivitrol or not. Our goal is to empower our clients and provide them with the tools they need to overcome their addictions and lead fulfilling lives.

Sophros Is Not a Primary Vivitrol Treatment Center

We recognize the benefits of Vivitrol and medication-assisted treatment and program it, when appropriate, for select clients. Our team conducts thorough assessments to ensure MAT is appropriate for clients by evaluating things like:

  • Medical history
  • Previous recovery attempts
  • Co-occurring mental health conditions

Vivitrol may not be appropriate for some clients who have medical issues or certain mental health diagnoses. Our team at Sophros Recovery works closely with clients to determine the best treatment plan for each individual, utilizing a variety of evidence-based methods.

Our Vivitrol Treatment Program

The Sophros Recovery Tampa program is based on four key elements: appropriate medication-assisted treatment, individual and group therapy, case management services, and aftercare support.

  • Appropriate MAT – Our team of professionals closely monitors clients’ progress and adjusts medication as needed to ensure it remains effective. We also provide education on the medication, its potential side effects, and how it aids in recovery.
  • Therapy – Individual and group therapy are crucial components of our program. Our licensed therapists work with clients to address underlying issues and develop healthy coping skills.
  • Case management – Our team provides support and resources to aid in clients’ recovery journey, including helping with employment, housing, and legal issues.
  • Aftercare – Recovery is an ongoing process, and we provide ongoing aftercare support through our alumni program. This includes individual check-ins, group meetings, and access to additional resources.
