What are your protocols on Vivitrol for alcohol addiction?

  • If you have a history of alcohol withdrawal-related seizures or DTs in the past, you will be recommended to go to an inpatient detox or hospital for safe detoxification from alcohol before we can consider admitting you to our outpatient clinic program. Your safety is our number one concern while you are our patient. Have your detox center make an appointment with Right Choice for an intake visit before your discharge from the inpatient detox place. At that visit, we will go over further treatment plans with you
  • If you have no history of DT or Seizure, our licensed and trained medical provider will complete a history and physical on your intake visit. Labs will be ordered and reviewed at your next visit. If you are considered to be safe for Vivitrol treatment, a Vivitrol prescription will be sent to the specialty pharmacy. You will be given comfort medications to ease your withdrawal from alcohol. You will be seen more frequently during this outpatient detox period at our clinic. Remember, you cannot drink alcohol and take these comfort medications at the same time. Not following this rule can lead to intoxication and a lethal overdose.
