Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist with a high affinity for the mu opioid receptor. The efficacy of extended-release naltrexone (Vivitrol) as a treatment for alcohol dependence has been demonstrated in clinical trials, raising the prospect of integrating pharmacologic treatment for alcohol dependence into general medical care settings. However, the feasibility of implementing this FDA approved treatment in the front-line settings in which it is most needed has not been demonstrated. This is an open-label pilot feasibility study of implementing treatment with Vivitrol in primary care medical clinics in a safety net hospital system affiliated with an urban academic center.
