This is more than a second chance, a new science-based approach to living a happier, healthier drug and alcohol free life!
Naltrexone clearly affects the time course of the post-acute withdrawal syndrome. Post-acute withdrawal syndrome consists of long term irritability, cravings, depression and insomnia. It likely represents low-grade withdrawal and it is probably contributed to by persistent physiologic imbalances that make the brain less sensitive to its own endorphins. This can take from several months to up to a year to resolve. The use of naltrexone accelerates the resolution of these imbalances and people feel better within a week or two.
The drug does this by sensitizing the brain to the naturally occurring endorphins. Naltrexone has classically been considered just a blocker so it has been difficult to understand how this would work. However, recent research over the past few years show the drug works as an INVERSE AGONIST. In order to understand this means, one must first understand that the opioid receptors have a baseline activity even when not stimulated. It is as if there is an idling speed (which is significantly increased during early withdrawal) and will be active even when not filled with either a drug or a natural endorphin neurotransmitter. The naltrexone reduces this activity.
This forced reduction in activity changes the cell in several ways. It increases the number of available receptors and it changes the expression of a wide variety of other proteins; the cell becomes more responsive to the natural endorphins. It will also change in the way it interacts with other cells downstream in the brain. The whole process results in an improved state of well being much more quickly.
