I was on this shot for a year myself. And I am a nurse. It was $900 a month for me. But the mental health facility where I received the injection had a state program that accepted so many patients from that hospital, and with my insurance the injection was free for me. I did however have to pay for my own drug tests once or twice a month. It's worth every penny though! If you really want to kick your habit, it's the only way!

How much does Vivitrol cost? Too much. If cost is a concern, why not take the pill - Naltrexone - and skip the expensive shot? And if you really want to quit and still have a functioning liver (as most people do) consider taking Antabuse (unless you have a health problem or allergy that makes that impossible). But you have to really want to take a pill that makes you incredibly ill IF you drink on it. And that's IF, not when. It's a deterrent that you can choose to take in the morning so the choice becomes obvious - don't drink - in the evening.
