This is Dr. David

yes, if you are taking Vivitrol or IM injection of naltrexone, you can still get high with heroine.

the vivitrol makes it harder to get high as it blocks various opioid receptors.

but you can still flood your system with heroine

the high will not be as good because of the vivitrol
