Numerous problems with the disciplined reception of Naltrexone pills  have forced scientists to search for new approaches in relapse protection.


The solution became different forms of Naltrexone depot. Once inserted under the skin or  muscle Naltrexone depot blocks the effects of heroin and other opiates. They gradually release their medication into the blood stream just as if the patient was taking their tablets every day for weeks even months. The opioid receptors are blocked making effect of heroin or other opiates impossible.    


Naltrexone pellets were introduced in the beginning of 1990-es in USA, then in Germany. They were prescribed by doctors as magisterial formula to the patients all over the world.


Naltrexone pellets look like white or light grey cylinders, balls or tablets in a sterile pre-loaded syringe. Different types of Neltrexone pellets contain from 500mg of Naltrexone and more. It actively provides relapse protection from 2 up to 12 months. 


Small surgical intervention is performed with local anesthesia. It is inserted through a 2-3cm incision in the lower abdomen or at the back of the upper arm. The implant is inserted  under the skin or muscle.
