Naltrexone is a 'blocker' that blocks the effects of all opiates, such as Heroin, Methadone, Subutex and Dihorocodeine. Naltrexone works by blocking the opiate receptors in the brain, thus, if opiates are taken they will simply have no effect and are therefore a waste of money.

No, Naltrexone does not have addictive properties. You cannot become physically dependant on Naltrexone and it does not produce any euphoric effects.
Naltrexone is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the treatment of alcoholism and opiate addiction. It has been on the market since 1985 for the treatment of opiate addiction, and since 1994 for the treatment of alcoholism. Naltrexone has also been approved in over a dozen countries and is prescribed to thousands of people each year throughout the world. Studies have shown that in typical doses used to treat alcoholism, naltrexone is very safe.
