Naltrexone

Naltrexone Treatment

The BioCorRx® Recovery Program is a comprehensive two-part outpatient “non-addictive” medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for alcohol and opioid addictions. These two parts include: A naltrexone implant and Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) based, solution-oriented counseling, plus 12 months of remote recovery support specialist (RSS) careWith CBT typically completed within 90 days, the program blends within the framework of one’s everyday life, in conjunction with 12 months of discreet peer-support (RSS) after care. This cutting-edge, proven, and effective treatment modality is available to consumers via select independent practitioners like Enlite Clinics.

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) and their 2006 ‘COMBINE’ study – (Combining Medications and Behavioral Interventions for Alcoholism) – the best outcomes in naltrexone therapy are a result of receiving naltrexone along with outpatient behavioral-modification counseling. The BioCorRx® Recovery Program, in compliance with NIAAA and HHS guidelines, has expanded on this cutting-edge concept.

Induction

After your initial intake is completed, you will be switched from your current opioid (heroin, methadone or prescription painkillers) to Naltrexone.

Stabalization

Once the appropriate dose of Naltrexone is established, you will stay at this dose until steady blood levels are achieved. You and your doctor will discuss your treatment options from that point forward. Referral to a 12 step program and/or counseling is also provided during your initial visit.

Maintenance

Treatment compliance and progress will be monitored. Participation in some form of behavioral counseling is strongly recommended to ensure best chance of treatment success. Follow up maintenance appointments will be discussed by your doctor at the time of your visit. The length of treatment will be determined by you and your doctor, and possibly your counselor. Urine drug screens will be performed randomly to ensure the recovery process.

Supervised Taper

As your treatment progresses, you and your doctor may eventually decide that a taper down is an appropriate option for you. In this phase, your doctor will gradually taper your Suboxone dose over a period of time. During this phase it’s important to monitor that you do not experience many withdrawal symptoms or cravings. In addition, you will receive instructions on how to contact your doctor in case of emergency.


Scheduling an Appointment

To help ensure that Naltrexone is the best treatment option for you, the staff will interview you by phone before your appointment is scheduled. You will then need to make an appointment for your initial intake/visit. Then you will be given very specific directions that you must follow in order to start the program. Are phones are answered 9am and 7pm, 7days a week.
