TI - Five-year follow-up of opiate addicts with naltrexone and behavior therapy
AB - AB - A group of 58 heroin addicts were treated with naltrexone and behavior therapy and followed
for 5 years. At one-year post-treatment, almost half of the naltrexone-treated subjects were opiate free.
Follow-up results at 5 years post-treatment indicate that over 90% of those patients treated with naltrexone
became re-addicted for various periods of time. However, naltrexone-treated subjects did feel their treatment
with naltrexone had provided them with the ability to remain opiate free for blocks of time. The results
suggest that naltrexone is not a "cure" for opiate dependence, but is a medication which can be useful in
protecting patients from re- addiction and is a modality patients should be encouraged to return to if they
feel vulnerable to re-addiction UI - 85012611
