Duration of the Naltrexone treatment
For How long does Naltrexone treatment last?
The procedure of placing an implant itself last only five minutes, but the length of the whole Naltrexone treatment program depends on patient’s motivation, history of addiction, health state etc. Optimal duration of Naltrexone treatment is twelve months. If addiction lasts less than a year, a six month implant might be enough but we advice our patient to stay with a treatment for a year, whether he chooses a three month implant that is renewed four times or receives a twelve month implant at once.
