Frequently Asked Questions

What does naltrexone hydrochloride do?

Short Answer

It is used as part of an addiction treatment program to reduce cravings for and the consumption of some narcotics and alcohol.

Long Answer

Naltrexone (nal-TREK-zone) works as an opioid antagonist; it blocks the effects of heroin or other opioids. It helps recovering patients by removing the intended effect (or 'high') of any narcotics that are consumed. Knowing this helps many people with their cravings.

This is not a cure or a solution for addiction to these types of drugs. It is used as part of a treatment program to reduce dependency on narcotics. On April 13, 2006, it was approved by the FDA for the treatment of alcoholism.
