The inventor of one type of Naltrexone implant is an Australian doctor George O Niel. Dr. George O Niel continues to refine his conception of Naltrexone blockers based on depot polymers. These implants are gradually dissolving in the body, releasing the necessary dosages of Naltrexone. Drugs mplants are available in Australia under specific conditions.
