Naltrexone Therapy

The Coleman Institute provides naltrexone therapy options in San Francisco, CA

At The Coleman Institute in San Francisco, CA, we use a special Naltrexone formulation that releases medicine slowly over a period of time in order to give our patients the best chance at a lifelong recovery.

As a non-narcotic medication that blocks the opiate receptors in the brain, Naltrexone:

  • Dramatically reduces cravings
  • Does not inhibit natural endorphins
  • Prevents highs if relapses occur
  • Is non-addictive

Without the intense cravings that typically accompany a detox, our patients are able to focus on the hard work of recovery. We have had tremendous results with our Naltrexone program. In fact, an early study at our clinic found that detoxification combined with a Naltrexone implant had a 100% success rate at six weeks and over an 80% success rate at three months. 

Depending on a patient’s needs, we offer two slow-release 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.

Staying clean is hard in the real world. With Naltrexone therapy, we can support long-term recovery without the side-effects of other addictive maintenance programs.
