In brief: Opioid blockade

It blocks your opioid receptors.
As a result, the enjoyment from alcohol will decrease, which make some people reconsider the reason for drinking. Revia can also be used to start opioid withdrawal or to maintain an opioid -free person from using again. There are many other uses for the medication.
