While oral naltrexone works to help eliminate addiction, it isn’t reliable. For the naltrexone pill to work properly, you must choose to take it every single day. With just one missed pill your addiction cravings could override your wish to recover. This is why the OLANI is so beneficial to recovering addicts. You no longer have to worry about taking your pill; the implant will consistently release a steady low dosage of naltrexone into your body for plus or minus one year. This means that for a year, you won’t have to worry about those cravings tempting you to use drugs and alcohol once again.
