Vivitrol blocks the effects of opioid medication, including pain relief or feelings of well-being that can lead to opioid abuse. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic. Vivitrol is used as part of a treatment program for drug or alcohol dependence.
Vivitrol injection is used to prevent relapse in people who became dependent on opioid medicine and then stopped using it. Vivitrol can help keep you from feeling a “need” to use the opioid.
