Naltrexone Therapy

The Coleman Institute provides naltrexone therapy options in Boston, MA

At The Coleman Institute in Boston, MA, we understand that detox is just the first step on the road to recovery. In order to stay clean, patients need time to fully recover from the brutal effects of addiction, both mentally and physically. We provide this support and strength to our patients through Naltrexone therapy.

Naltrexone is a medicine that blocks the opiate receptors in a person’s brain, acting as a powerful buffer during the initial and most challenging parts of recovery. This therapy is a vital part of our three-step addiction treatment process and makes the transition to sobriety easier, more comfortable, and far more likely to last.

We offer two specially formulate Naltrexone options for our patients:

  • Naltrexone Implant: We place a small, painless Naltrexone implant under the patient’s skin, where it slowly releases a dose for 2 months.
  • Vivitrol®: Vivitrol® is an FDA-approved, branded version of injectable Naltrexone.

Although patients can take Naltrexone orally, we’ve found that many people either forget or choose not to take it – making them more likely to relapse. Our slow-release options give patients weeks of support at a time. To ensure the best chance for lifelong recovery, we recommend that most patients continue with their Naltrexone therapy for a year after completing detox. Doing so gives them the time and space to focus exclusively on healing while they start living without the burden of addiction.

Our revolutionary techniques at The Coleman Institute in Boston, MA have achieved remarkable results: thousands of patients treated with over a 96% satisfaction rate.
