DRUGS TO FIGHT DRUG ADDICTION
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Probuphine, the first buprenorphine implant for the maintenance treatment of opioid dependence. Probuphine is designed to provide a constant, low-level dose of buprenorphine for six months in patients who are already stable on low-to-moderate doses of other forms of buprenorphine, as part of a complete treatment program.
The use of naltrexone was first approved for the treatment of opiate dependence in 1984 and for alcohol dependence in 1994. In 2006, Vivitrol, a new formulation of this medication was approved for alcohol and in 2010 Vivitrol was approved for the prevention of relapse to opiate dependence.

It is indicated for patients who have been on a stable dose of buprenorphine treatment for at least seven days. Buprenorphine for OUD
Ketamine for the treatment of addiction: Evidence and potential mechanisms. Ketamine is a dissociative anaesthetic drug which acts on the central nervous system chiefly through antagonism of the n-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. Recently, ketamine has attracted attention as a rapid-acting anti-depressant but other studies have also reported its efficacy in reducing problematic alcohol and drug use.
