What to Know About Addicion Recovery Treatment
Who should seek treatment?
Beyond Urgent Care supports those on the path of healing to reinforce recovery. Addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes a need for substances. Opioid addiction, specifically, is difficult to overcome without the proper tools. Beyond Urgent Care in North Haven is here to assist in strengthening your recovery.
A once-monthly, non-addictive medicine, Vivitrol (naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension), will be administered by one of our trained practitioners. Vivitrol is an extended-release injectable form of naltrexone. As an opioid antagonist, the medicine blocks the dopamine reward center in the brain for a month, therefore lessening the chance of relapse.
Results are best if combined with counseling, therapy and social support. Combined with these efforts, you may see a decrease in opioid dependence following detox, and lessened cravings.*
