Vivitrol

Vivitrol Overview

Non-Narcotic, Non-addictive Injectable Medication (NNAI) Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Service within the jail setting grant.  This project supports jail inmates preparing to transition into the community with opioid, heroin, and or alcohol addictions.  

Vivitrol is a treatment drug that helps prevent relapse in opioid and alcohol dependent patients. From its inception, it offered a completely different model for treatment than its predecessors for many reasons. 

  • Vivitrol effectively takes away the “high feeling” produced in the brain when using opioids or alcohol. 
  • Vivitrol lasts for up to 30 days with a single treatment. 
  • Unlike almost every other alternative, Vivitrol is completely non-addictive.

Inmates can volunteer to participate in receiving an injection by the Bayfield County Jail Nurse prior to five days of their release date. Three Vivitrol injections are allowed per participant. One injection prior to their release from jail and the remaining two within 30-day intervals of each other after release.

The project was refunded again for the 2022-2023 year.
