Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD)

Dr. Watson Introduces VIVITROL®: An Opioid-Free Path to Recovery

Opioid Use Disorder (OUD): A Modern Crisis with Multiple Solutions

The devastating impact of the opioid epidemic has ignited a quest for effective treatments. Among the options available, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) has emerged as one of the most promising. And within the MAT realm, VIVITROL® offers a unique, non-addictive approach that many are embracing.

Dual-Action Solution for Opiate Use Disorder and Alcohol Use Disorder
Are you struggling with Opiate Use Disorder (OUD) and Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD)? Vivitrol (naltrexone) could be the game-changer you’ve been looking for. This once-monthly injectable medication provides a unique and effective approach to treating OUD and AUD concurrently. Vivitrol acts as an opioid antagonist, effectively blocking the euphoric and sedative effects of both opioids and alcohol. By doing so, it helps to diminish the rewarding sensations associated with these substances.

VIVITROL®: A Non-Addictive Option in MAT

VIVITROL® is a once-monthly injectable medication specifically designed for those recovering from Opioid Use Disorder. Unlike many MAT medications that contain opioids, VIVITROL® is opioid-free, making it an attractive choice for patients keen on a treatment option devoid of any opioids.

Office-Based Treatment with Dr. Watson

Dr. Watson is proud to introduce VIVITROL® as part of an office-based treatment regimen. This means patients can receive this transformational treatment in a comfortable, professional, and private setting, avoiding the institutional feel of large medical centers.

VIVITROL® vs. Other MAT Medications

It’s essential to understand the differences between VIVITROL® and other MAT options:

Opioid Content

Most MAT treatments utilize controlled doses of opioids to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings. In contrast, VIVITROL® is entirely opioid-free.

Dependency Risks

Since VIVITROL® doesn’t contain opioids, there’s no risk of physical dependency on the treatment.


While some treatments require daily doses, VIVITROL® is a once-monthly injection, which can be more convenient for many patients.

The Benefits of VIVITROL® for OUD

  • Reduced Cravings: VIVITROL® helps minimize the overpowering cravings associated with OUD.
  • Non-Addictive: Patients can be assured they aren’t replacing one addiction with another.
  • Consistent Treatment: Monthly administration means fewer doses to remember, leading to a
    more consistent treatment approach.
