Absolutely! We have no association or affiliation with AA or other similar support groups, but our ultimate goal is simply to help as many individuals as possible become sober and maintain sobriety. We want program participants to be emancipated from the misery of their addiction and be able to realize and fully manifest their potential. We want to assist in giving them back their life. AA is a firmly established and successful organization that we support. It teaches a manner of living that can benefit anybody and establishes a mechanism that the alcoholic can support and help others with a similar struggle. It serves as a safe place to be constantly reminded of the risk of relapse, and provides additional tools and support to maintain long term sobriety. The benefit of fellowship and camaraderie of a group support in recovery cannot be overstated. We do not consider our program in conflict with AA. In fact, we believe that our program will assist AA, or any support group or recovery program in achieving lasting success with a higher percentage of their participants. We recognize that many people in the throes of addiction are incapable of concentrating and absorbing the teaching of counselors, therapists, and group meetings. And no matter how hard they try, some individuals are unsuccessful in the “white knuckle” approach. In addition, every person and every recovery journey is different and many individuals simply don’t thrive in the group setting. By eliminating the intrusive and overwhelming craving to drink, we find that program participants are better able to ingest, digest, and apply the teachings from their counselors, therapists, AA, alternative 12-step program, SMART recovery, or wherever they feel most comfortable so as to maintain long term sobriety.
The BioCorRx® Recovery Program is comprehensive, so as to provide each one of program participant the highest opportunity for success. In addition to utilizing medicine to address the physical and neurobiological aspect of the disease, program participants will engage in intensive and individualized one-on-one sessions with licensed drug and alcohol counselors (most of whom are recovered addicts.) As discussed above, to obtain and maintain sobriety, the physical AND the psychosocial/behavioral aspect of addiction must be addressed. The naltrexone implant is a very effective tool that, in some people, virtually eliminates the physical cravings for an extended period of time. Once physical cravings are suppressed, the individual can then focus entirely on the equally important and difficult psychosocial aspect of the recovery. Study after study indicates that medical therapy in combination with counseling is superior to medical therapy or counseling alone. It is critical to understand that addiction is a lifelong struggle. Our program has remarkable success in assisting to accomplish sobriety in the vast majority of program participants. Once successfully enrolled in our program, and liberated from the shackles of alcohol or drug addiction, we strongly encourage and endorse long-term participation in support groups (12-step, or otherwise) to maintain personal focus, lifelong surveillance, and to offer a helping hand to others that fight a similar struggle.
IMPORTANT: Many program participants receiving the implant may feel that they are “cured” in a couple of months due to the effectiveness of the implant and therefore, do not remain as dedicated to their counseling sessions. There is no known cure for addiction. The implant is a very effective tool to relieve the burden of hyper-focused cravings but the psycho-social and behavioral component of the disease must be modified or relapse is almost certain. Clinics using the program have reported a very high success rate with those who completed the entire counseling portion of the program and much lower success rates with those who DO NOT complete the program. The Counseling is critical to success.
Yes. Naltrexone is FDA approved for the treatment of opioid addiction but there are additional considerations that must be made. Opioid recovery should be managed by a medical caregiver who has training and experience in treating opioid addiction. The naltrexone implant used in the BioCorRx Recovery Program has been used successfully for many years by doctors in Australia to treat opioid addiction. BioCorRx does not render medical advice or make medical decisions in this regard. An independent prescribing doctor may deem he long-lasting compounded naltrexone implant as a safe and appropriate treatment for his patient in opioid recovery. Most doctors require that patients be at least 7 to 10 days opioid-free before receiving any type of naltrexone treatment. Please speak to a licensed physician about naltrexone use to opioid addiction treatment. There are associated risks if you attempt to abuse narcotics while on naltrexone. There is a life threatening risk of overdose if you attempt to overcome the antagonist properties of naltrexone. Furthermore, tolerance is dramatically lower after just a short time of opioid abstinence, so once the naltrexone implant has dissolved and is no longer providing effective levels in the serum, there is significantly higher risk of fatal drug overdose if relapse.
Yes, you can. Naltrexone in the oral or injectable form does work, but there are distinct advantages to receiving a naltrexone implant. The implant releases a slow and steady dose of Naltrexone into the body over many months resulting in consistent drug levels and long lasting effective suppression of the cravings and opioid effectiveness. There are significantly fewer fluctuations in the drug levels, which tends to maintain a more reliable and steady suppression of the cravings. Most importantly, having the implant removes the critical issue of daily medication compliance typically seen in most program participants dealing with addiction. When taking naltrexone orally a program participant often skips a dose or sleeps in too late, or forgets to pack the medication on travel or may be unable to get a refill, or more commonly, may be deceived into believing that they are now in control and no longer require the medicine. Each of these scenarios illustrate how medication non-compliance often leads to relapse.
Consult with a physician, but most medications can be taken while on naltrexone. It’s important to let the doctor know what medications are being taken prior to naltrexone therapy so that any contraindications can be determined. Naltrexone will block the effect of opioid pain relievers so it is important to notify medical personnel if you are receiving naltrexone treatment. It may also render cough and cold medications containing opioids ineffective. During naltrexone therapy, program participants carry a medical card that may be carried discreetly in one’s wallet or purse. In the event of that someone on naltrexone therapy requires pain relief due to any medical circumstances, alternative analgesia or high doses of opioid medication may be administered in the monitored hospital setting. There are a number of readily available alternative pain relievers that can be used in conjunction with naltrexone. Acetaminophen, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, gabapentin, lidocaine patches, muscle relaxers, steroids, and various other alternative pain relief and anti-inflammatory medications may be effectively used while on naltrexone therapy. In addition, the implant can be removed and narcotics administered after naltrexone is out of the patient’s system. This can take several hours or days.
