Narcotic antagonist pharmacotherapy of opioid addiction was proposed by Wickler and developed based on the classical behavioral concept of "extinction." The euphoric effects of opioids which reinforce the self-administration behavior are blocked when an individual is being treated with a narcotic antagonist. The repeated lack of reinforcement, as well as the perceived "fuitility" of using the agonist, will gradually result in the extinction of opioid self-administration behavior.
