How Will Vivitrol Help With Substance Use Recovery?

Vivitrol is a medication prescribed to treat alcohol and opioid addiction. It prevents the brain from feeling the deficiency of endorphins that are usually released by opiate or alcohol use. You're much less likely to use a substance when you no longer get that euphoric feeling. Eventually, you start to have less cravings.
