Vivitrol Treatment

How Does Vivitrol Work?

Vivitrol is a new drug for the treatment of alcoholism. Some may think this is the new “magic drug” that will cure alcoholism. It is not. It is a drug that is taken once per month as a shot. If you are suffering from alcohol abuse and are currently drinking you should not take this drug. In order to be effective, the person taking Vivitrol should not be drinking excessively. Also, if the addict is taking any opioids such as heroin, Vivitrol is not recommended.

What Vivitrol does is to help the person who is trying to become sober to have less of a desire to consume alcohol. What Vivitrol does, basically, is that it binds to the opioid receptors in the brain. With Vivitrol binding to these opioid receptors in the brain, it is believed that this results in the blocking of certain neurotransmitters in the brain that are involved in alcohol dependence. By blocking theses neurotransmitters, then, the patient is less likely to be addicted to alcohol.

Cliffside Malibu is one of the leading alcohol treatment centers located in peaceful Malibu California on a private two-acre estate. We have specially trained medical doctors who work with not only alcohol addicts, but also people who are addicted to many types of drugs, including prescription drug addiction. Our clinical staff will determine whether Vivitrol will be recommended to use for your alcohol abuse.

Do I Still Need Alcohol Rehab If I Am Taking Vivitrol?

Do I Still Need Alcohol Rehab If I Am Taking Vivitrol?

The makers of Vivitrol do not claim that by taking Vivitrol alone that you can overcome your alcohol dependence. They recommend that you enroll in an effective alcohol treatment program. There are many issues that have led to your abuse of alcohol. Once you have jumped into that pit of addiction it is difficult to climb out, especially on your own.

Where Is The Best Alcohol Rehab For People On Vivitrol?

There are many alcohol rehab centers that all claim to be the best. How can you judge? How can you tell? How can you get the information to help you make an informed decision? Which is the best alcohol rehab for you? May we suggest some factors for your consideration?

We believe the first thing that should be considered is the type of treatment plan being offered. Every person is unique, with unique experiences and unique struggles. That being the case, why should you go into an alcohol rehab program that offers the same treatment program for every resident? Our answer is that you shouldn’t. Here at Cliffside Malibu we pour over your health history and your history of abuse. We take into consideration many factors before developing a treatment program that is unique to only you. By doing this, we have found that we have a very high success rate with helping our residents stay in sobriety.

Another important factor is the location. We are a private and exclusive alcohol treatment center located in the hills of Malibu California. Instead of being in a hospital-like setting with large numbers of other addicts, you will be one of a very select few living in a luxury retreat. Gourmet meals prepared fresh each day, private rooms with designer furnishings, your own personal trainer: these are just a few of the things you will find here that you will not find but in only a few alcohol rehab centers anywhere. In addition, our ratio of staff to residents is among the best in the entire industry. When we say we will give you individual attention, we mean it.

Why not call us today to get more information and see how we can help you? Call us at 1-800-501-1988. One of our trained staff will take you call and answer all your questions.
