Vivitrol and Suboxone
Vivitrol is a once a month prescription injectable medicine used to treat Opioid and alcohol dependence and prevent relapse to opioid dependence, after opioid detoxification. Restorative Brain Clinic offers Vivitrol as a compliance treatment for alcohol and Opioid addiction as a combination therapy with r/d-TMS and psychotherapy. After detox in a detox facility, we can offer Vivitrol to block alcohol and opioids allowing the patient to be in compliance with our clinical procedures to treat brain disorders such as depression.
Suboxone is the brand name for a prescription medication used in treating those addicted to opioids, illegal or prescription. It contains the ingredients buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, blocks the opiate receptors and reduces a person’s urges. The second ingredient, naloxone, helps reverse the effects of opioids. Together, these drugs work to prevent withdrawal symptoms associated with an opioid addiction.
