... therapy for alcohol abuse?
You can use any pain medication that is non-opiate like Tramadol which is an opiate strength non-opiate pain killer which supposedly treats moderate to severe pain & again supposedly isn't as addicting as opiate medication but if you ask some people on this site who have used it they have withdrawal symptoms very simmilar to opiate withdrawal. I mention that drug specifically because it's the only one I can think of or know of myself that treats strong pain. You could google non-opiate pain killers & see what else is out there but you do not want to take the naltrexone after you took an opiate medication because it will put you straight into withdrawal & really hate life. Good luck.
"It is important that one not attempt to use opioids while using naltrexone. Although naltrexone blocks the opioid receptor, it is possible to override this blockade with very high doses of opioids. However this is quite dangerous and may lead to opioid overdose, respiratory depression, and death. Similarly one will not show normal response to opioid pain medications when taking naltrexone. In a supervised medical setting pain relief is possible but may require higher than usual doses, and the individual should be closely monitored for respiratory depression. All individuals taking naltrexone are encouraged to keep a card or a note in their wallet in case of an injury or another medical emergency. This is to let medical personnel know that special procedures are required if opiate-based painkillers are to be used." Wikipedia
