In brief: Yes
There are two broad classifications for types of precocious puberty, and there are multiple causes within each category.
There's not room to even list all possibilities, but 'yes' there are treatments for many causes of precocious puberty. Some do not require treatment.

In brief: Precocious puberty
There are medications called gnrh analogs that act to shut off the pituitary gland and stop its stimulation of the gonads.

In brief: Yes
If central precocious puberty requires treatment, typically pediatric endocrinologists use either injections of depo-lupron which are given monthly (some will use even longer lasting) or the supprelin implant which lasts about a year before it needs to be replaced.
