Naltrexone Therapy

The Coleman Institute provides naltrexone therapy options in Pittsburgh, PA

At The Coleman Institute in Pittsburg, PA, we understand that detox is just the first step on the road to recovery. 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 with Naltrexone therapy.

Naltrexone is a non-addictive medicine that prevents cravings and possible relapse by blocking the opiate receptors in the brain. This acts as a buffer in the brain against cravings and the temptation of relapsing. Not having to deal with the intense cravings often present during the recovery period has a huge influence on the success rate of addiction recovery.


In order to give our patients the best possible chance at a lifelong recovery, we provide two specially compounded Naltrexone options:

  • 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.


The brain can take a year or more to heal after detoxing, so we often recommend our patients participate in Naltrexone therapy for at least 12 months. This non-narcotic, painless medication makes it easier for patients to start their new addiction-free lives.
