How it Began
The drug/alcohol research project by St. Vincent de Paul of Prairie du Sac, Wi started in 2013 with the goal of developing a comprehensive plan of reaching at risk individuals in Sauk Prairie and surrounding communities. To assist individuals to abstain from using alcohol and opioids the non-addictive medically assisted treatment medication called Vivitrol is being used.
Our mission is to provide a safe and orderly living environment for women recovering from alcohol and/or drugs conducive for developing a plan of recovery to gain self-confidence, develop positive relationships with family and others, and return to life with an entirely new lifestyle and approach to living.
- Vivitrol (Naltrexone) is a non-narcotic injection given once a month to treat opioid and alcohol addiction.
- Vivitrol blocks opiate receptors in the brain which give the individual the security of knowing they will not have the urges or cravings, thus allowing them to regain control of their lives and focus on recovery.
- Vivitrol is most effective when combined with behavioral therapy as our wrap around services offer.
- Vivitrol is different than Suboxone and Methadone which are opioids that manage and maintain the physical effects of withdrawal.
