    I have personally followed up with over 200 patients (on the lab side) who have received the naltrexone implant. Our lab’s protocol is to do a follow up after the implant has been placed inside the patient, then 30 days out, then 60, then 90 days out. Most of the patients we follow up with see tremendous results…while it is not a permanent solution it is an awesome tool in the fight against opioid addiction or alcoholism. We also work with clinics doing vivitrol injections…in both cases a patient must take oral medication for 7-10 days to make sure they are not allergic to naltrexone. Used in conjunction with treatment both of these are awesome solutions.
