What to Know About Addiction Recovery Treatment
Who should seek treatment?
If you are on the road to healing, Beyond Urgent Care stands by you to reinforce your recovery. Addiction is a chronic brain disease that fuels the urge for substances. Opioid addiction in particular can be a difficult habit to break alone. Beyond Urgent Care in Bethel is here to help.
A once-monthly, non-addictive medicine, Vivitrol (naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension), will be administered by our trained physicians. Vivitrol is an extended-release injectable form of naltrexone. The medication is an opioid antagonist, that blocks the opioid receptors of the brain for a month with each dosage. This helps patients prevent relapse.
When combined with counseling and social support, the medication is not only able to decrease opioid dependence following detox, but can lessen cravings.*
