New Horizons in Quincy helped me at my lowest. I was thrown off another Suboxone clinic (Brightview) for relapsing. Literally like I kept relapsing and missed 2 appointments. Isn’t relapse a part of recovery? I mean if you’ve relapsed as many times as I have you know it is. So when I needed the counseling and support and yes the Suboxone the most I reached, my Suboxone doctor cut me off. Like how much worse can it get? I called New Horizons hoping for an appointment. New horizons took me immediately. They listened to me. They agreed that what the other place did was wrong. They gave me support and encouragement. Not just once but every time I go there. They don’t judge you. They are flexible. When you come here you get a feeling of being welcome. To an addict that’s something you might never feel

About Naltrexone

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.
