Abstract: Naltrexone is of proven efficacy as a treatment modality in the relapse preventive programme of opiate abusers. It complements the other interventions such as individual counselling, family therapy and self-help groups. The initiation of Naltrexone therapy after detoxification would be of vital importance in maintaining an individual's drug-free state. Naltrexone has no intrinsic opiate activity and has no resale value in the black market unlike methadone.
