The OLANI implant was specifically developed for recovering opiate addicts, but has also proved very beneficial to people with abuse problems associated with alcohol and stimulants. It is therefore ideal for poly drug abusers, who constitute more than half of all addicts in the United States.

Anyone who can pass the naloxone challenge can be fitted straightaway with an OLANI. This includes individuals who are currently using buprenorphine. (Those still using opiates, including methadone, should refer to the Detox section of the website.)

For full procedural details kindly refer to the opiates page.
