Dr. Vigo also offers Vivitrol for opiate addiction, as well as for alcohol abuse. Vivitrol is a medication that is injected once per month. The injection blocks the receptors for both opiates and alcohol. Vivitrol combined with Substance Abuse Counseling has proven to be very effective in helping to overcome the cycle of addiction. It is covered by some insurances, including WV Medicaid. Discount pricing is available for cash paying patients.
Some of the advantages of Vivitrol is that it is not a narcotic or a controlled medication and there is no limit to the number of patients we can have. It is used to treat opiate addiction as well as alcohol abuse. There are no waiting lists, as is common for Suboxone.
