Vivitrol Now Offered at The Bergand Group

Vivitrol Now Offered at The Bergand Group - The Bergand Group

The Bergand Group, with offices in Towson and Bel Air, Maryland, now offers Vivitrol as a medication management option to help reduce opioid and alcohol dependence during treatment. Medication Management at The Bergand Group is always used in conjunction with programs such as group, individual, and family therapy. The physical withdrawal symptoms from certain substances such as opioids can be especially strong, and make it difficult for the patient to concentrate on other aspects of recovery. Medication management is used to lessen the physical withdrawal symptoms of addiction to allow the patient to move forward with other facets of the recovery process.

Along with Suboxone, which utilizes Buprenorphine and Naloxone, Vivitrol is now offered as an option of medication management at The Bergand Group. Vivitrol is a once-monthly medication effective for treating alcoholism and preventing relapse to opioid dependence after opioid detox. When coupled with counseling and other addiction recovery programs, Vivitrol helps recovering addicts stay clean and sober. The combination of Vivitrol and counseling target the two regions of the brain affected by addiction. These two areas of the brain, otherwise known as the limbic region and the cortex, control pleasure and rewards, as well as decision-making, reasoning and learning. By targeting these areas of the brain, Vivitrol and counseling help recovering addicts resist the urge to use. A nonaddictive and nonnarcotic medication, Vivitrol is a competitive opioid blocker, which prevents users from feeling opioids, should they be introduced into their system.

The Bergand group offers Vivitrol in conjunction with counseling and other addiction recovery programs at both of their Baltimore and Harford County locations. Vivitrol should not be used alone and should always be combined with other forms of addiction recovery treatments. For more information on utilizing Vivitrol as an option for medication management for a successful addiction recovery, get in touch with The Bergand Group. Serving the Baltimore and Harford County areas, The Bergand Group can help you no matter where you are on your road to recovery.
