Posted 12/13/12 (Thu)
The Heartview Foundation has expanded services to include the medication Vivitrol for the treatment of alcohol and opioid dependence. Vivitrol is an injectable medication that blocks the effects of opioid drugs in the brain and decreases the craving for alcohol by reducing the intoxicating effects. There is no associated intoxication, no potential for abuse, and the medication does not cause physical dependence.
Adam Rondeau and Aaron Hanson, Alkermes pharmaceutical representatives, trained the Heartview staff on appropriate utilization of the medication. "This is another step forward to advance our resources and have the most cutting edge treatment services available for those individuals that are afflicted with the terrible disease of addiction,"says Kurt Snyder, Executive Director.
