I'm a rep from another company and have been an alcoholic for 10+ years. I am at a point where I absolutely must do something but can't imagine going into an inpatient treatment center. I saw a post on another page about Vivitrol and saw the physician locator. I tried Campral a couple of years ago, but I never made it through the 5-day drying out period and basically just lied to the prescribing doctor so he would give it to me...but of course it was not effective without that wash-out period. So is Vivitrol better? Does it really work? I don't want to go to another doctor, spill my guts and try this if it isn't really effective. Please, serious replies only-please.
