Regain Control Of Your Life With Naltrexone Implants in Bakersfield

If you or a loved one are struggling with opioid addiction, Naltrexone implants can be a long-lasting medication used to help you overcome your opioid addiction. This breakthrough treatment method can help significantly reduce your cravings for drugs and alcohol, allowing you to regain control of your life.

What Are Naltrexone Implants?

Naltrexone is a prescription drug, and it blocks opioid receptors in your brain that are responsible for the pleasurable feelings you get from alcohol and opioids like opioid painkillers and heroin. Because it blocks these pleasure effects, it’s often one of the most effective medications used as part of pharmacotherapy.

How Do Naltrexone Implants Work?

If you want medicine that stops opiate and alcohol cravings, Naltrexone might be the prescription for you. You won’t be able to get high from heroin or other opioids, and you’ll lose the “reward” effect of alcohol as this drug works to diminish the positive alcohol effects.

Since these drugs will no longer serve the purpose that caused addiction in the first place, you’re much more likely to stop taking them altogether. In addition, Naltrexone implants significantly reduce drug and alcohol cravings that often result in relapse for many patients.

Traci's Story

Traci was battling opioid painkiller addiction before starting treatment at Synergy Recovery Services. She eventually received a Naltrexone implant and feels amazing. The naltrexone implant enables her to be herself again by taking care of cravings and it makes it virtually impossible for her to relapse.

Benefits of Naltrexone Implants

Most patients who use this solution find a significantly reduced desire to use opioid drugs or drink alcohol because their brain will not respond to the chemicals like it used to and they no longer feel the same level of craving. As a result, a Naltrexone implant can help patients completely stop their use of alcohol and opioid drugs, as long as the implant is used correctly.

Who Should Use Naltrexone Implants?

Qualifying for this treatment is the number-one step toward successful, effective treatment for opioid and alcohol dependence. The treatment does not mix well with other drugs, and you run a high risk of overdose if you return to opioids during or after treatment. Only patients who are fully committed to their recovery are eligible clients who can safely receive Naltrexone implants.

The bottom line is that we expect this implant to give users strong results, but the patients receiving the drug must play their part during and after treatment.

Side Effects of Naltrexone Implants

Most medications have side effects, and Naltrexone is no exception. What’s different, however, is that Naltrexone’s effects tend to go away after a few days, once the body is used to the medication.

The side effects you might experience include:

  • Runny nose
  • Exhaustion
  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Sleeplessness
  • Dizziness
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Stomach cramps

Some extreme cases include side effects like chills, depression and constipation. Liver damage may occur with a Naltrexone dosage that is too high. We urge any patients who experience skin yellowing during use to see a doctor right away.

There are also other forms of Naltrexone, such as Natlrexone Tablets and Injections. While a single dose of the injection lasts the longest out of the three options, some may still want to opt for these other forms of treatment. Your doctor can help you choose which medication type is best for you.
