Hello readytoquit,
And congrats for realizing that it is time to put your life back together free from the cruches of alcohol, trust me been there done that and it aint fun!! I read that u should avoid alcohol for up to 14 days before you start the naltrexone, but you can call a center that offers this type help and ask them to ease your mind and be 100% accurate... good luck with your recovery
