NALTREXONE HELPS OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES OF RECOVERY
CHALLENGES OF RECOVERY
All patients must detoxify from all opiates, heroin, methadone, and Suboxone/Subutex prior to treatment.
Prior to the procedure a drug screen and physical is performed.
The naltrexone pellets are inserted under the skin in a quick and relatively pain-free outpatient procedure.
Optimal naltrexone levels will block opioids for 3-6 months. During this time there is virtually no chance for relapse due to the blocking of the opioid receptor.
There are little or no side effects.
A 12-Step Program, IOP, group and/or individual counseling is required to insure long-term success.
Dr. Nelson can also provide a naturopathic dietary and supplemental program to rebuild brain function, vitality and overall health after years of drug abuse.
