Hackensack NJ, The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office announced  that, effective this week, we have begun offering Vivitrol to eligible inmates as part of our reentry program and specifically to those individual who are struggling with opioid / heroin addiction. The first two participants have already been enrolled and we will be monitoring these individuals to support them and to measure the impact of this initiative.

Vivitrol is an injectable medicine used to block the effects and cravings for both opioids and alcohol for a period of one month. Participants are often prescribed this medication for up to one year in conjunction with out-patient therapy for best results. We are excited to offer this program in partnership with two outstanding local agencies, www.transitionprofessionals.org, and www.cbhcare.com .
