Medication Assisted Treatment: VIVITROL

VIVITROL is a once-monthly, long acting intramuscular (IM) injection designed to be used in conjunction with a comprehensive treatment program.  Opioid-dependent patients, including those being treated for alcohol dependence, must be opioid-free at the time of initial VIVITROL administration.  VIVITROL is indicated for the treatment of alcohol dependence in patients who are able to abstain from alcohol in an outpatient setting prior to initiation of treatment with VIVITROL.  Patients should not be actively drinking at the time of initial VIVITROL administration.  VIVITROL is also indicated for the prevention of relapse to opioid dependence, following opioid detoxification.  Treatment with VIVITROL should be accompanied by psychosocial therapy.  VIVITROL is a nonaddictive, nonnarcotic opioid antagonist that blocks the subjective effects of opioids.  



VIVITROL is offered to eligible individuals within the Department’s custody who meet medical criteria and other release considerations. At the Montgomery County Correctional Facility, the Jail Addiction Services staff offers a weekly group to individuals interested and considering VIVITROL and other medication assisted treatment to help reinforce their recovery process upon release. Eligibility is reviewed with all interested candidates for VIVITROL and related treatment connections.

Overdose Education and Prevention at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility

Through partnership with the Montgomery County Overdose Response Program, Naloxone training is available to individuals incarcerated at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility.  Trainings to administer naloxone are currently held once a month and participants are eligible to receive a NARCAN kit upon release from custody as they return to the community.  While this training is currently provided to participants of the Jail Addiction Services programs, the Department intends to increase the service reach to as many individuals as possible while in facility custody through the use of expanded resource materials and videos.
Department staff in selected areas at both the Montgomery County Correctional Facility and Montgomery County Detention Center received training on administering naloxone in the potential incidence of an overdose of an individual while entering the facility or while in custody.
