21 XR-NTX: Induction How Do We Start? There is no single proven method, however, success has been found with Inpatient AND Outpatient approaches Success = >50% of patients retained through 1 st XR-NTX injection without precipitated withdrawal KEY: Close contact & attention to the patient s changing needs Setting expectations, providing support AND structure
22 XR-NTX: WD Symptoms Upon Initiation Withdrawal is commonly compared to the flu Aches, pains, insomnia, nausea, anergia Anxiety, irritability, dysphoria, anhedonia Aggressive symptomatic treatment helps Insomnia: zolpidem, trazodone, quetiapine GI distress: H2 blockers Anxiety/hyperarousal: clonazepam, clonidine Most symptoms remit in 2-4 weeks Prolonged symptoms are rare & likely represent additional psychopathology
23 Improvement in Function & Quality of Life Mean SF-36 physical component scores at Baseline were similar in the XR-NTX and placebo groups (50.4 vs. 50.7) and remained at or above U.S. norms (=50) at endpoint. Mean SF-36 mental component scores were similar at Baseline (35.0 vs. 35.4), but at endpoint, the XR-NTX group had normalized to 50.4 vs for placebo (~half an SD below normal).

26 WHO? Who Should Be Considered for Meds? Who Benefits the Most from Vivitrol? Who Should NOT Receive Vivitrol? Is Vivitrol for Criminal Justice Patients? Who Should Be Involved in Care?
28 XR-NTX: For Whom? Motivated to be abstinent, opioid-free & undergo withdrawal Preparing to leave rehab or jail/prison opioid-free Monitored by judges, professional boards, employers, schools or sports teams that may not allow agonist treatment Structure & social supports in place (however, chronicity & severity can be either mild or severe) Rejects agonist treatment or has failed agonist treatment Succeeded with agonist treatment and wants to conclude it Wants shorter-term medication that can be easily concluded Late adolescent/emerging adult with shorter duration addiction Has both opioid and alcohol dependence
29 Conclusions: Who Responds? Traditional consensus on NTX-PO in opioid dependence: Mainly for narrow range of good prognosis patients, e.g., professionals, high motivation & good social supports. Monthly formulation: designed for adherencewillette 1976 No significant baseline predictors XR-NTX (vs. PBO) Good efficacy in higher severity patients, i.e., those with worse global severity with the CGI-S, higher craving, lower function (EQ-5D) & quality of life, & HIV+ Results suggest that XR-NTX was effective in promoting abstinence from opioids & preventing relapse after detox across a range of demographic and severity characteristics.
31 Selection Criteria: Offer XR-NTX If Patient Just withdrawn from opioids; or abstinent but intense craving Leaving inpatient rehab or incarceration Has begun intermittent use, but not yet dependent relapse Despite maintenance agents, frequently uses opioids anyway Discontinuing maintenance as a landing pad transition Young adult or late adolescent Subject to drug testing or job sanctions for maintenance Dependent on both opioids and alcohol Treatment Matching is key: There is no superior approach except the one that works for the particular patient! Segregated care = BAD care; patients need integrated care
32 HOW? How Do You Describe Vivitrol At Intake? How Do You Address Ambivalences? How Should Family Be Included? Doctors & Other Strangers How Will I-We-They Know If It Works? How to Contract For Success Logistics for Successful Adherence Exploring The Patient s Perceptions How Does Craving Change?
33 XR-NTX in Rehab: Data Sources Administrative records from 3 inpatient CRC rehabs in PA CRC is the largest U.S. provider of specialized behavioral healthcare, treating >30,000 individuals daily Electronic records characterized 7,687 opioid dependent detox/rehab inpatients in terms of demography, diagnosis, payer & hospital course. Conclusions 1. XR-NTX patients were significantly less likely to leave AMA, more likely to complete rehab, have longer LOS & greater entry to continuing care. 2. Women: as likely as men to receive XR-NTX; Race did not appear to be a factor in treatment selection. 3. XR-NTX can be successfully administered to opioid dependent patients after detox & before discharge from inpatient rehab.
34 XR-NTX in Rehab: Results Injected Not injected Not Prescribed p<.001 vs XR- NTX (Days)
35 We find that all of us, as a society, are to blame, but only the defendant is guilty.
36 Note: data were annualized because offenders in the XR-NTX group were in DUI/Drug Court for a longer mean time than offenders in the Control group (13 vs. 11 months)
37 CRIMINAL JUSTICE Study 4: XR-NTX in Missouri Probation & Parole Naturalistic outpatient treatment, retrospectively analyzed; XR-NTX (N=156), Oral Naltrexone (N=45), Bup/Nal (N=168), No Meds (N=2513) Note: data were annualized because offenders in the XR-NTX group were in DUI/Drug Court for a longer mean time than offenders in the Control group (13 vs. 11 months)
38 HOW? Losing the: Craving (good!); High/Euphoria (OK); Escape (Uggh ) How Does Vivitrol Promote The 1st Step?: Awareness How Will I Cope?! Emotion Without Escape How to Talk About Vivitrol In A.A. Is There Spirituality After Technology? Foster Self-Efficacy: Via exploration, NOT discontinuation Remembering Vulnerability: Notes, Journals, Rating Scales Setbacks & Contingencies: Plan ahead, Restart How Long Should Vivitrol Be Continued? 6 mos? 12 mos? 13 mos? Or, based on criteria
39 Attitudes: Harmful & Helpful Attitudes that do a disservice to patients: If you re using drugs, you re not really sober; I did it the hard way If you just work the program, you won t need any drugs You can t treat a drug problem with a drug If you are on drugs, you can t speak at a meeting Attitudes that are justified by the science: We don t withhold medication from heart disease patients, saying: You have to stop smoking & lose weight on your own, like I did! Chronic diseases, like hypertension & asthma have meds. If we want addiction to be treated as equal to other medical illnesses, we need to accept the role of medicine in addiction treatment, too. Opioid patient on XR-NTX: I never understood it before but now I know how it is that non-addicts can just ignore drugs. And suddenly I see what it means that I really do have an addiction.
40 CRC Vivitrol Procedure Upon Admission Patients sign Alkermes Release form to verify if patient s insurance will cover medication History and Physical (within 24 hours of admission) Medical staff discusses Vivitrol as an option along with continuing care Mid-stay Lecture by medical staff regarding Vivitrol in conjunction with continuing care Information posted within center to promote Vivitrol Meet with designated staff members to verify benefit and continue the authorization process Before Discharge Medication shipped directly to center to facilitate injection prior to discharge Continuing Care with provider in home area is set for follow up injections CRC Provided Slide
41 XR-NTX: Testing the Blockade As many as half of patients will test blockade Usually during the 1 st month after detox; many on D/C day Thus, 1 st injection is better 2d before D/C; if given on last day & risk of testing, supplement with NTX-PO Most, after unsuccessfully testing 1-3 times, stop testing Rarely, (but reported) patient could use high amounts such that physical dependence could recur
42 XR-NTX: Managing Discontinuation Patients discontinue prematurely for innumerable reasons: it s the disease Better to regularly anticipate ambivalence & explore it in counseling If patient discontinues, remember that blockade can continue for as long as 6 weeks after injection It is not uncommon for a patient to want to restart XR-NTX later; This is a good sign that predicts a longer retention If patient restarts XR-NTX after cessation, must review need for detox
44 SoberRecovery : Sunday s Child I have a 19 year old son who did the usual progression from marijuana to percs and oxys. He went through several rehabs and relapses and was one week shy of completing an extended care program and hitting his one week clean mark. He relapsed and spent 5 weeks in a downward spiral that finally reached IV heroin. He reached out for help to his sponsor and others he knew from his program and AA. He went to his psychiatrist who suggested he try Vivitrol.
45 SoberRecovery : Sunday s Child The doctor first put him on a two week trial of oral naltrexone to see how he would tolerate the drug before committing to the shot. He waited 7 days after his last use before starting, but all the opiates were not out of his system. He went through a bad period of withdrawal, including a psychotic episode.
46 SoberRecovery : Sunday s Child He made it through the two weeks though and got his first shot mid- June. He's since had 3 shots, and is a little over 3 months clean. The stated side effects include depression, and I have noticed that he is a little more "edgy" right about when he gets the shot. When he was considering it, the guys from AA discouraged him, saying it was a crutch. He went ahead anyway, feeling that it was his last shot. The risk is that some addicts try to beat it with large quantities of dopethis produces overdose. The risk of overdose at "regular" dosages is also increased after it is stopped. So an addict needs to be really committed to recovery, because if you relapse, you are at greater risk of death. I was terrified when he told me he was trying it - but - it wasn't my choice, it was his. It seems to be working for him. He is working a program of recovery, holding a job, and attending college. He swears by the shots, and says he would recommend them to anyone.
47 Drug Users Forum: Bluelight.ru Yesterday 01:04 It cant really be done. Today is the 25th day after my vivitrol shot. (it lasts 30+ days) I also just got 1/2 g uncut #4 straight from the village of Azad Afghanistan. The plan was to wait until like the 35th day so i would get maximum benefit. But my dumb ass decided to try to break through the naltrexone blockade with about 80% pure heroin. I ended up using 3/10 g. i could feel something similar to a rush and could feel the heroin. But as I'm sitting here typing 5 minutes later there is not much euphoria at all. Okay now im starting a slight nod. If anyone has any experience/suggestions on this please comment
48 Patient Management Addressing Culture Obstacles Involve both the treatment staff and the patient population Two long-established expectations that HINDER recovery: 1) that only a 12-Step approach is acceptable OR 2) that every patient deserves opioid substitution meds Requires team education on the research that counseling alone is worse than counseling + an FDA-approved med Also, team needs to hear health economics findings: Counseling-only care is wasteful, vs. counseling + MAT. Teams need to talk with Vivitrol-treated patients who also used counseling and mutual-help Supervisors: Need to review weekly LIST of supervisees patients & last/missed visit Teams: Need to review weekly LIST of team s patients & last/missed visit info
49 Patient Management Overcoming Logistic Hurdles The preferred situation: Fully establish logistics before patient care This is not always the case Important to mentor RE key front desk personnel responsibilities, insurance coverage determination/managed care interaction, specialty pharmacy ordering, shipping readiness confirmation, cold storage/shelf-life & product tracking, supply management. Mobilize the treatment system to overcome specific logistical hurdles Set up PRE-VISIT ORDERING/SHIPPING procedures from 1 st prescription Set up patient phone call reminders 2 days before injection & follow-up Set up Spouse/Significant Other authorizations for contact if no-shows
50 Problem Solving Converting Screenings into Medication Administrations In medicine, patients accept most treatment recommendations made by their physician In addiction, well under 50% of patients screened eligible for Vivitrol actually get injected The largest cause of drop-off is lack of readiness for definitive care, due to the motivational disruption of addictive disease This problem is followed by culture obstacles in the treatment environment Patient failure to engage is commonly due to: detoxification procedures that create delays incomplete/ineffective withdrawal
51 Patient Management Up Front: Achieving Patient Readiness Key patient messages The nature of the disease: out-of-control, chronic, relapsing, life-threatening XR-NTX: highly effective for preventing relapse to opioid dependence XR-NTX: craving & drug use early in recovery enhances self-efficacy XR-NTX: trigger responses without emotional or cognitive side effects Side effects can occur & can usually be addressed so let us know Program will help with: Scheduling, reminder calls, supportive other F/U calls, justice system communications/tracking Vivitrol Ambassadors have been very successful; a recovery support Vivitrol Groups to increase efficiency, foster retention & persistence
52 Patient Management Patient Retention Patients must see the need for longitudinal care & mutual-help; anticipate relapse risks & loss of motivation. Coordinate messaging & visit reminders with patients, supportive others, program & justice system staff Educate Supportive Others/Family Obtain consent to involve 1 supportive others for initial & follow-up to reinforce safety & retention with both MAT & counseling Address Drug-Seeking, Persistence Issues & Diversion Heighten vigilance for the blockade testing, overriding or seeking opioids to divert for income despite Vivitrol Address blockade avoidance (late re-injection, premature discontinuation) Monitor patients attendance & urine drug tests Timely communication across addiction, medical & justice teams, significant others/family Re-assess/modify treatment plan when escalation is needed, not just the meds
53 Patient Management Co-occurring Disorders Management Medication Discontinuation Planning & Follow-Up XR-NTX is long-term treatment XR-NTX lacks WD; only needed to stabilize craving, establish disease acceptance & recovery The Team + patient must determine Vivitrol s duration: use ASAM Based on treatment engagement, recovery effort & function Post Medication Outcome Tracking Addiction is chronic; must track patients after MAT & determine need to restart before new physiological dependence (avoids detox), before other morbidity & while opportunity to re-engage is open Get follow-up reports on post-mat outcomes & advise RE patient s need for re-assessment & med re-start
54 Patient Management Drug-Drug Interactions There are few drug interactions with XR-NTX (except for opioids) Precipitated opioid withdrawal not a side effect, but is an adverse event Encourage calls to report; monitor induction closely for success Adverse Events Early learning curve for BOTH counselors & patients Common mild-moderate side effects: Nausea (1 st 3 days of 1 st shot) Site tenderness These are expected: Anticipate routinely with every patient & address readily Serious Adverse Events May require emergency room or surgical evaluation or treatment (rare).
55 XR-NTX Continuation Post-Pain AE Percent of Subjects Percent of AEs 8% 5% AEs potentially associated with study discontinuation AEs not associated with study discontinuation N=302 N=481 92% 95% ~92% of subjects reporting receipt of a pain med for a pain-related AE received at least one more XR-NTX dose ~95% of all pain-related AEs reported were not associated with study discontinuation* *As defined by no additional XR-NTX doses after the dosing of pain medication for a pain-related AE (Note: AEs or SAEs occurring >7 weeks after previous XR-NTX dosing were omitted from our analysis).
56 4 th Week Effect? Discontinuation
57 XR-NTX: 4 th Week Effect Anecdotally, patients report XR-NTX wearing off by 4 th week Russian Phase IV RCT analyzed week-by-week findings Week 4 did show: craving, drug use, dropout BUT, at the same rate in BOTH XR-NTX and Placebo groups Conclusion: 4 th Week Effect is real, BUT non-pharmacological Therefore, counseling must address expectancy/ambivalence Anticipate the 4 th week effect from the start of treatment With the patient, caregivers & supportive others Prepare for re-injection with counseling & contingency management
58 HOW LONG? ASAM Criteria Treatment Plan Use CRITERIA for XR-NTX Discontinuation: Patient has Dimension 1: Consistent period of no alcohol or drug use Dimension 2: Stable health management; no SUD complications Dimension 3: Stable MH management; no SUD complications Dimension 4: Readiness Good disease awareness/acceptance Dimension 5: Self-knowledge of risks, triggers & vulnerabilities Success enduring both negative AND positive stressors Dimension 6: Active recovery efforts & lifestyle Stable participation, vocationally & socially
59 Counseling VIVITROL Patients for Recovery Clinical Phenomena Commonly Seen with XR-NTX (Implications: Both good & bad) My friend had this Suboxone that really helped me That guy who got the shot: I wanna be on whatever he s on The Pink Cloud this SH*! works HELP, I m STUCK without an escape for 30 days!!! OK, I m good to go now [silence Elvis has left the building]
60 Counseling VIVITROL Patients for Recovery Why? Because addiction is TOUGH & recovery is painful What? Integrated XR-NTX + counseling yields BEST results Who?
