Outpatient Implant Procedure

Eliminate the cravings and free the mind.

Fresh Start Private takes a unique approach to alcohol recovery beginning with virtually eliminating the physical addictions of alcohol. Our program utilizes the drug Naltrexone, which is an opiate antagonist that removes the “pleasure feelings” in the brain that respond to alcohol when consumed. Our exclusive Naltrexone Implant formulation is one of the only single-administration, long-acting implants used in the U.S. today. The Naltrexone Implant slowly releases the drug into the body over the coming months after the procedure in order to eliminate the cravings for alcohol.

A Safe Procedure for a Healthy Recovery.

This minimally invasive, outpatient procedure can be scheduled anytime. The procedure is administered by a trained medical professional, requiring only local anesthetic, and can take as little as 15-20 minutes. Specifically formulated and biodegradable, the implant is inserted just beneath the skin below the lower abdominal area. Patients have reported minimal to no physical discomfort during the procedure. More importantly, within hours of receiving the Naltrexone implant, patients have reported feeling complete freedom from alcohol cravings. Many patients have reported returning to work the same day. This rapid turnaround time allows patients and their loved ones to begin healing and working together towards an alcohol-free life.
