The APA is recognizing Natltrexone as a mainstream treatment

I would say good for them. Recovery is not easy, I'm not in a position to judge anybody's recovery.

I personally have worked with dozens of people who have been helped by Naltrexone. I know a guy who would predictably relapse soon after his monthly vivitrol would wear out.

I personally don't think MAT is the best long term answer for most, but it saves lives. It may be the only thing that works for some.

The APA is talking about using it for abstinence. That is not the Sinclair Method.
