Naltrexone medication is used with therapy to help stabilize people that are struggling with alcohol abuse. The medication can be prescribed during the first visit per the medical provider’s consideration and your health history. Naltrexone comes in a form of tablets or as part of a long-release formulation, Vivitrol.
Naltrexone is not a narcotic, doesn’t build new dependence, and helps reduce cravings and block alcohol effects on the brain. Our providers will provide treatment for binge drinking, heavy drinking, alcohol drinking during pregnancy, and any other alcohol abuse for adults over 18.
Addiction is a medical condition. Treatment can help. Recovery is possible.
Most health insurance plans are accepted. Your recovery is in good hands with us.

Alcohol Accessibility and Effects
Alcohol is a substance that is readily available for purchase, at parties, and other places as well as it can be cheap – these factors could lead to developing substance dependence. Even small doses of alcohol cause changes in brain circuitry in a region that is essential for the development of addiction. Regular consumption only intensifies the brain and body chemistry imbalance.
How to identify binge drinking?
Binge drinking, the most common form of excessive drinking, is defined as consuming:
- For women, 4 or more drinks during a single occasion.
- For men, 5 or more drinks during a single occasion.
Heavy drinking is defined as consuming:
- For women, 8 or more drinks per week.
- For men, 15 or more drinks per week.
Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
If a person drinks alcohol heavily and regularly for a prolonged time they might experience mental and physical challenges when trying to cut back or quit drinking. Withdrawals are uncomfortable and can even be dangerous. It is best to get through it with the help of qualified professionals and enroll in an alcohol abuse treatment program with regular counseling.
Mild alcohol withdrawal
When trying to quit drinking alcohol, people might experience mild alcohol withdrawal symptoms:
- Tremors or shakes
- Blood pressure changes
- Increased Sweating
- Increased heart beating
Severe alcohol withdrawal
People with heavy and prolonged alcohol drinking might also experience severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms:
- Heavy sweating
If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the above withdrawal symptoms it might be best to seek professional help.
