Naltrexone Pellet Implant
SoberLife USA treats addiction as a serious chronic medical disease. Our first step in combating this disease is to conduct a thorough medical examination to make sure this solution is an appropriate fit for you. After the diagnostic consultation, our doctors will design an individual treatment and personal recovery plan that will best suit your needs.
Next, our doctors perform an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure, using a compounded implant of the FDA approved drug Naltrexone. Within hours of the procedure, the physical craving for opiates and alcohol are greatly reduced, or completely eliminated.
Without an overnight stay or an extended inpatient program employed by other drug and alcohol treatment centers, the recovering patient is then able to address the behavioral, emotional, and psychological aspects of the addiction with our addiction professionals or a recovery center/program of their choice - free of the physical craving and relapses that conventional treatments could not help.
The cravings stop within hours! Take the first step toward your new Sober Life with Sober Life USA!
We accept most PPO insurance for this procedure.
Traditionally this treatment is taken orally, but patients find it difficult to adhere to the ongoing daily schedule of intake, resulting in minimal success. As a result, fluctuations of the cravings continue to swing (often times with even more severity) making recovery nearly impossible. The compounded Naltrexone implant was designed to curb that problem.
The biodegradable implant is safely inserted just beneath the skin, most commonly in the lower abdominal area, by a board certified trained surgeon. Once implanted, the Naltrexone is slowly released into the body over a period of time that is determined by each patient’s rate of recovery (usually anywhere from 3 - 12 months). This simple procedure takes 15 - 20 minutes to complete, and patients often report a decrease in cravings within the first couple of hours.
What makes this treatment unique is the ability for a patient to go about their daily life shortly after the procedure, thus eliminating the social stigmas of addiction. The road to recovery does not end here, patients will still need to seek therapy or a 12-step program to assist with the adjustment process of returning to a rehabilitated state. SoberLife USA will help with selecting the appropriate counseling or recovery program that’s right for you.
Once the cravings have subsided and with the right coaching, patients are better positioned to cope with uncomfortable emotions and to manage potential relapse triggers that may occur. For several months directly following the procedure, our counselors work closely with our patients to monitor their progress. Whenever possible, counseling is provided in person, but can be done over the phone or via Skype.
Along with promoting and teaching a recovery lifestyle for long-term sobriety, counseling includes the development of a sober support network that is best suited for our patients needs. A program of recovery is a vital part of the treatment process. It enables patients to stay sober long after the implant dissolves, producing a comfortable alcohol and drug-free life.
