Can I become addicted to Naltrexone?

From SAMHSA: “When used as a treatment for alcohol dependency, naltrexone blocks the euphoric effects and feelings of intoxication. This allows people with alcohol addiction to stop or reduce their drinking behaviors enough to remain motivated to stay in treatment and avoid relapses. Naltrexone is not addictive.” Evidence for the Efficacy of Naltrexone in the Treatment of Alcohol Dependence (Alcoholism): “Naltrexone is not addictive and does not react aversively with alcohol.”
