Testimonials and Success Stories

Please read these amazing and truly life-affirming testimonials from alcoholics and addicts around the world sharing just how dramatically the Naltrexone implant has helped turn their lives (and their family’s) around, freeing them from the horrors of alcoholism and addiction. Untold thousands are on the road to recovery after years of abuse and suffering. While the Naltrexone implant itself has been working wonders around the world for nearly two decades as you will see below, the BioCorRx Naltrexone implant, though only a few years old in here in the U.S., has set out to dramatically change lives right here in our own backyard…and the success rate thus far is more than admirable–about 85% for those who complete the program and stay active in recovery. Following are success stories from the BioCorRx Program (formerly known as The Start Fresh Program) as well as from the Naltrexone implant itself*:

Guy with Backpack Success Stories

Daniel Jacobs:

I have received a Naltrexone implant before after I realized that I can’t beat the addiction on my own. From day one after the implant I felt that I had more energy, I can think more clearly and my business benefits from this as I can make more informed decisions. At no stage after the implant I felt a need or craved for drugs or alcohol as I was high on life. My relationship with my wife changed overnight as she realized that I wouldn’t take a chance with drugs or alcohol as my life had so drastically changed for the better. Drugs and alcohol is a habit and Naltrexone gives you the chance and time to get rid of the habit. After the implant one feels human again.

Chris B.:

My name is Chris and I am a patient of the BioCorRx Program. I am a Fire Captain in Southern California. I had been drinking for over 25 years. I was in desperate need of a change in my life. My wife moved out and I was on the brink of divorce. I found the BioCorRx Program by way of radio. I then went to the website for more information and found that I did not have to go to a 30 day program.

The reason I chose the BioCorRx Program was that I didn’t have 30 days leave my job or family. The other reason I chose this program was the overwhelming success rate. It was the best decision that I have ever made. From the moment that I stepped foot in the clinic, the staff was first rate, professional, kind and understanding.

The procedure was painless and only took about a half an hour. It started working within the first few hours of having it done. When I arrived home, my wife asked how I was feeling. I could not believe that I had zero cravings for a drink. I thought that it was a fluke; it couldn’t be that easy.

It’s been a year since the procedure and I have still not had any craving for alcohol. Along with the life-coaching program I am a glaring success, of how this program changed my life. I would not be where I am today if it weren’t for the Start Fresh Program and the professional staff.

If you are looking for a program that is extremely effective, cost appropriate and can change your life forever, you have to consider the Start Fresh Program, it will change you life.

Todd McMenamin:

BioCorRx saved my life.

They say otherwise (in their endearing, supportive manner of course), claiming that I did it with my willingness to try the program and true yearning to be sober. The simple fact is that I wouldn’t be alive now if it weren’t for the monumental program and spectacular people at Start Fresh.

I had endured enough horrific events in my life during very recent years that left me unquestionably hopeless and completely despondent. Every conscious moment was filled with overwhelming stress, anxiety and depression. I was drinking well over a 750ml bottle of hard liquor daily. There are enough witnesses that can attest that I was going to die…either from expiring physiologically or by my own hand. When I first received a call from a family member outlining the basics of the program…that was my very first glimpse of hope. I had wholeheartedly tried essentially everything in terms of recovery and nothing came close to working. It exasperated my problems, broke me financially, and was even psychologically damaging…thus why I was immediately so intrigued.

An implant that eliminates cravings? A personal life coach that will help me establish a foundation and rebuild my life? All without uncomfortable in-house treatment where I can work, see my son, and get back to the strong, confident, outgoing person I was?

I couldn’t have imagined a better program…and this was before I met the people at Start Fresh and realized that my small amount of hope was in fact a reality. Every single person there is so very kind, comforting, positive, supportive, sincere, understanding…to say they are wonderful is a vast understatement. This was exactly what I needed to stay alive and believe in myself once again.
The procedure for the implant was quick, easy and completely painless. Within three hours afterwards, I was back home and my place was an abomination…dirty clothes, trash, dishes, stacked mail, old food. I methodically went through each task and it suddenly hit me—I hadn’t thought once about drinking. It was surreal…I had no inclination to drink whatsoever and haven’t since. It’s been several months.

Simply put…I don’t even think about thinking about not drinking.

With the life coaching, this program isn’t strictly a one dimensional approach at not drinking or using. It’s about establishing golden time with loved ones, working hard, igniting careers, enjoying all of the things in life that were once so very treasured but became nothing but a foggy memory…

I don’t want anyone to go through what I went through and truly wish for anyone suffering from an addiction to call. With medical advancements, common sense, and spectacular people…THIS IS IT.

Jack Conway:

I had the procedure done on March 16 of this year, 60 days on Saturday, and have neither touched a drink, nor have I had any great desire for one in that time.

First let me give you a bit of background. I am 55 years old and had been drinking for the better part of 40 years. For the past 25 years or so I was an everyday drinker with the only exception being the occasional 24 hours or so before some medical procedure or another. Other than that every day. During the past few years my construction company pretty much ground to a standstill which allowed me to drink a lot more often and earlier. I finally came to the realization that I was just tired, partially from the economy, and partially from the drinking. I knew I drank way too much, and over a period of months had been trying to figure out some way to quit. I knew I was powerless to just stop, but I would try now and then and would make it a few hours. My willpower, or lack thereof, would soon crumble and I would just have a beer. It was easy and comfortable.

While bouncing from one story to another on the computer one night, I ran across an article about this company located in Perth, Australia and the Naltrexone implants they were having success with. I did some research over the next few weeks about the company and the drug and finally came to the realization that possibly this is what I was looking for. My thought was, and still is, that if this implant procedure could give me some sort boost, reinforce my willpower, just maybe I could do it. After a few more weeks of soul searching, my wife and I decided that this was the poker hand we would go all in on. Our thought was that if it didn’t work, we had lost nothing but money, although that was in pretty short supply, but the upside was tremendous. After a few e-mails and phone conversations, we arrived in Santa Ana on the afternoon of the 15th. We met with our [support team member] that afternoon, [and the doctor] that evening and had the procedure done the following evening. The surgery itself is very straight forward, probably a half hour total, and painless with local [anesthesia].

I woke up the following morning feeling fine, and my wife and I went about our day of exploring the area (we are from Boston). The amazing thing is this, and may God be my witness, I had no desire for a drink. I kept waiting for the familiar feeling in my gut that said it was time, but it never came. The days went on, and I was not only not drinking, but not missing it. All I can say is that whatever these Naltrexone implants are, they work. I have now been about 60 days sober and feeling great, not only physically, but about myself.

I could go on all night, although it probably seems like I already am, about the benefit of not only the procedure, but the follow up attention given by the staff at Start Fresh Recovery. We met with our counselor every day about what we were to do going forward, and he gave us the foundation from whence to build. [My support team] kept tabs on us as did [the doctor] and his staff. On our last day in California we also had the good fortune to meet Dee and Neil Muller [Co-Founder and President of Start Fresh Recovery] who are doing wonderful things getting Start Fresh Recovery off and running.

If you are at that same point I was a few months ago, I really do believe this is the right way to go. This has truly given me the helping hand I was looking for and it seems to be getting easier as time goes on.

It is a difficult (scary) step, but one you will not regret.

Tiny Du Preez:

I just want to say thank you its been 4 months and my life has changed so much. I’m looking good and feeling great and the nice thing is that everyone around me can see the change. The only thing remaining is that I must find a job. Thank you very much for helping me through this decision I made for a better life and future so that I can make a success of myself and my future. Without your support and help as well as the support of family and friends I would still be pathetic old Tiny who everyone looks down on. Today I can look to the future with hope by taking one day at a time. I also have found love again in my life and it really is going very good with me I have a future now.

Michael Scholtz:

Since I had the Naltrexone implant my life has changed completely and I am a new person. I had no withdrawal symptoms afterwards and I have never felt this good in my life. This all after your Naltrexone implant. Rehabs are a joke and money making institutions that does not work. I have never heard of or read about any success in any rehab. Keep up the good work. The only thing that works for me is the Naltrexone implant. I Michael Scholtz I.D. 8011155171085 declare this to be the truth.

John Coleman:

Thanks to you guys we have our son Liam back again clean and sober, out of trouble and living at home again. All Shelly talks about is you guys at BioCorRx Recovery and what a profound effect you had on Liam. We know it’s only early days but it’s been such a long battle with him and him being only 19 years of age its great just to see him so happy with life and sport again. We even took him to a football game last week and had a fantastic time. He never even thought about a drink and I could tell just by his great attitude and the fun he was having. He tells me he just feels free from alcohol and looks forward to getting on with his life. Anyway thanks for your help and understanding.

Shaun Prinsloo:

I was addicted to heroin for the last 12 years. For 10 years I have tried to quit doing drugs. I have been in 7 rehabs and were never successful. I have overdosed on three occasions and nearly lost my leg. But after my implant my life has changed. Within 3 months I was promoted from boilermaker to technical manager and have my own house. I have my family back and I have my life back. My boss sees so much potential in me he wants to send me for further studies. I thank you so much for your contribution.

Chris Breitenbach:

I am Chris Breitenbach.I had a seriously big problem with heroin addiction for 8 years. There was no way out for me. Then I heard ofDr Gerhard Kirsten and his implant. I tried it and today I feel like a new person. I was out on the streets with my drug addiction and I spended a year in jail for theft and robbery. This was horrible because I lost complete control of my life. But my life has changed completely. I feel like a new person and I have my job back .I am also able to take care of my daughter. A also have a desire to live again. Trust me this works.

Bruce Berry:

There’s alot to life, life is a blessing treasure it and good luck to all of you out there.

Jim O’Keene:

Thank you BioCorRx from the bottom of my heart, I really appreciate the help that you have given my wife and I. BioCorRx Recovery helped to get my wife well again. Without the help from Start Fresh Recovery I don’t think Daphne and I would be together today.

Start Fresh Recovery not only stopped Daphne from drinking, but has also helped us as a couple to understand the disease of alcoholism. The life counseling sessions, are very important, because the therapy teaches you how to live sober and teaches you the tools to live alcohol free.

I love how the Start Fresh Recovery program covers everything. You have the implant first, which takes away the physical cravings, then you have the life therapy sessions, which concentrates on the mental and emotional side of the patients recovery. The Start Fresh Recovery program helps the addict, but also helps loved ones as well.

Daphne and I have tried other forms of treatment in the past and nothing has been successful, except the F.S.P. program. I would recommend this program to anybody. Great program, keep going forward Start Fresh Recovery, this program is going to help so many people out there that are suffering from alcoholism.


Hi all. My name id Duane. All i have to tell all of you guys out there battling with cat or alcohol or any addiction, there is hope. It had a hold of me for 7years, after my implant it changed my life from living in hell to functioning normally and having a loving family life i had so long wished for. I strongly recommend this to all. Regards Duane.


I did not believe that anyone or anything could save my life from Heroin addiction. I was spiking 10 bags a day into my veins and was never aware of what was really going on in real life. This trend was going on for 15 years. The grave was waiting for me and it was to be soon that I will die because my body and mind could not take it any more. Then came you the naltrexone implant and turned it all around. This was really a miracle and I cannot thank you enough for giving me back my life, This worked instantly for me without side-effects or any severe withdrawal symptoms. May you help many more desperate people.

Kathleen O’Keefe:

Thanks BioCorRx for the opportunity to give a testimonial with my experiences with Start Fresh Recovery. All I can say is I never ever want to go back to the way I was when I was drinking. It’s like the fog has been lifted, and I have clarity for the first time in many years.

My two daughters forgive me, now that I am sober, and that is a wonderful feeling, considering what I must have put them through. Life at times is not easy, but I have the ability now to make sober decisions, thanks to your program. And hopefully with the tools that you have given me, I can stay sober for the rest of my life. (I will do everything in my power to stay sober.)
Many, Many thanks, your friend, Kathleen

Going to rehab as an alcoholic was an experience that caused me not to get healed but also addicted to drugs. This took all precious things from me including my husband and children. I was all alone out on the streets and killing time by taking dose after dose of all kind of drugs. I was longing to die to get out of this miserable world. Then came Dr Gerhard with the Naltrexone implant and changed everything. I am myself again and back in my family. My life has never been better. I enjoy every moment of it. This really works and is a miracle. Please do not hesitate. Give yourself a chance and get your life back.


To all the parents out there (actually to everybody where alcohol has become the ruler of their home) I know that I am the happiest woman in the world! My husband was an alcoholic and along with that came all the other drama like emotional and physical abuse on a daily basis – It became so unbearable that on one night I took my daughter to my brother in law. She was not to come home unless my husband rehabilitated. I went to child welfare and with their help made the arrangement permanent. We had an appointment withDr Kirsten the following day for him to implant the implant, which of course is the only of its kind (the only implant which cannot be scratched out as the other implants can) We did the 3-monthly treatment for one full year. No Alcohol passed his lips as from day one. He cannot stand the stench of alcohol any longer, not in a nightclub, bottle store or especially on a person’s breath. The cost is not even an eighth of what he used to spend on alcohol. Our beautiful daughter came home a day after the first treatment and now 3-years later alcohol is still no option in our home. The treatment improved our lives and in my husband’s case it will until the day we die. Thank you Dr Kirsten you have saved our marriage and family. You are an absolute treasure to our community.

To whom it may concern:

Hi, I am now 22 and started using drugs when I was only 16. It started as a once off with friends. I only did it at parties, but found myself feeling the need to buy my own and so I started to. At first it was only over weekends. Soon I found myself doing 3 bags a weekend by the time I turned 17. I fell pregnant and didn’t use until my child was born, I then started all over again. This time every 3rd day for 6 months on end. I fell pregnant again and again did not use. My son was born when I was 19 years old and I started using every day, soon thereafter I found myself in a rehabilitation centre for 6-weeks. When I came out I started using even more (2-3grams per day) and I weighed only 43kg’s. My life was falling apart when I saw the ad for the implant in the Huisgenoot. I found help and my life changed after I had the implant, I don’t even smoke anymore. A person might think drugs are a way of life and that you need it, but it’s not! STOP! The implant saved my life! Thank you very much.

Chantelle Coetzer:

The implant made me feel better about myself. I felt I did not need alcohol to feel better about myself. I also did not crave alcohol. It gives you courage and a lust for life.

Esmerelda Willemse:

I thought I was stuck on a path that I never wanted to beon, because withdrawal can bring one’s life to a halt. The implant gave me my life back and made it easier to carry on as a normal person, it might sound silly to some people whom are lucky enough never to have crossed paths with heroin, BUT I promise this is true, you don’t know what you have till it’s gone. I threw away 7 years of my life, but thank God for the implant because I now have the rest of my life to make things right and enjoy my life. (* implant= naltrexone)


My name isEphrahim, I was addicted to heroin for plus minus 10 years. I lost many aspects of my life: my job, respect of my family and good friends (including their trust), my self- respect, material things, but most of all my sanity. I tried on many occasions to stop (that’s what I really wanted) but, I couldn’t control my cravings. I did anything and everything to get my next fix, feeling ashamed and guilt ridden once I have used. People tried helping me by sending me to rehab, I was in and out but my sobriety outside of rehab lasted at most 2-weeks, leaving my family disappointed and eventually they gave up on me and let me be. I felt alone, unwanted and afraid that the obsessive compulsion to use will never leave me. I also attended NA meeting which made me realize there were others just like me with the same struggle. I attended regularly and my relapses reduced to 3 to 4 weeks. When I then relapsed I felt even worse for letting myself down and the few people that supported me in NA. I just felt like a lost cause. Until last year June, a good friend read the article in the YOU magazine about Dr Kirsten and the Naltrexone implant and we both had renewed hope. Yes, we were sceptical, but I was desperate to try anything. Since then I have been receiving treatment by Dr Kirsten by Dr Kirsten (Naltrexone implant) with great success. I am happy, I have a job again after 5 years, my self-respect back and care of my family and good friends. I have almost come full circle and will continue for however long to hold on to my sanity.

Dean Diss:

I agree that the implant is a miracle and people who use drugs have benefitted by going for the implant. It is difficult for the people to afford the implant as it is very expensive. It has changed my life although it was a very difficult journey. Thank you


My name is Christopher van Wyk, I was an alcoholic and addicted to drugs. I was not particular about the type of drug as long as I could get high, even sex would do. I almost died on a number of occasions and was heading for certain death. Three months ago I got Naltrexone implants and within 2 days I lost all cravings. I even stopped smoking with no withdrawal symptoms. I started performing better at work and recently got promoted to a senior management position even though I can’t spell (joke ha-ha) Naltrexone changed my life, but it is expensive and I really cannot see people in dire need of this treatment being able to afford it as people with substance abuse problems rarely have this type of money.Naltrexone in my opinion has the capability of changing the world.

Martin Louw:

I am now 38 years old and have struggled with addiction since the age of 16. Through the years I have struggled to overcome my addiction without any success. I had actually given up all hope of over coming my problems with drug addiction and was ready to throw in the towel in life. I learned about Naltrexone and had my first implant in October 2012 the change in my life has been remarkable. I finally had a tool that helped me fight my addiction. The cravings have disappeared and I am able to work on my life and not getting the next fix. Naltrexone has been a blessing without it I probably Have been dead by now

Thokozani Thukulu :

I firstly would firstly like to thank God for the second chance in life, I also would like to thank my family for not giving up on me despite all the pain and suffering I have caused them. I am a better person now. For 3-months now I have not experienced cravings and it is all thanks toDr Kirsten for his wonderful medication. I will spread the word to all my friends who are still hooked. I am a living testimony that in life there is a second chance. I no longer lie, cheat or steal and I am always happy, which is something I haven’t felt in a long time. Next year I am continuing with, my studies so I can be independent one day and make something of myself. Above all, to help others in need just like I have been helped. Thanks a lot Dr Kirsten and may God continue blessing you and your staff. If it wasn’t for you I don’t know where I would be today

Phillip Theunissen:

I was a regular user of CAT for four years before I had the Naltrexone implant. After having the Naltrexone implant I lost all my cravings for CAT and could lead a normal life again. The implant makes a person feel good and gives one the energy to get up in the morning. Thank you for giving me my life back.

Doctor Mashiyane:

I was a heroin addict for almost 16 years, and it has cost me a lot. I was a cheating, lying and stealing which was causing pain to my family. I ended up being a bad person who was not trusted by anyone at home. I felt like my world is ending. I also lost my job at a mine. I was treated with this Naltrexone implant and now I am free from the drug chain for more than 3 years thanks to Naltrexone.

Francois Delport:

I am writing this letter to all the thousands of people struggling with what I struggled with – the ever damaging alcohol. I went to look for help and discovered the Naltrexone implant about 3 months ago. I immediately came to Dr. Kirsten and had the Naltrexone implant, since then everything has drastically changed, my craving went away and my life started making sense again. I used to always fight with everyone and now decisions are easier as I see life out of a different perspective. I would recommend this implant to everybody. Alcohol isn’t the solution to a problem, it is the problem.

Brian Wobker:

I came for the Naltrexone implant about 3 months ago for alcohol abuse. I made the choice to do this for myself and my children. I found the implant to be very successful for me. I had no cravings for alcohol and I was previously drinking a bottle of whiskey a night. From the day of the implant it worked, I had absolutely no craving for alcohol. I found that I have more patience with my children, and as a single father it has given me my life with my children back. I can now spend more time with my children instead of spending time with a bottle of whiskey. I am very impressed with the product and the results that I have had with the implant. Thank you


In short – the implant gave me my life back.

PM van der Schyff:

Since I had the implant my life has changed completely and I am a new person.I had no withdrawal symptoms afterwards and I have never felt this good in my life.This all after your implant. Nothing else works. I have a new energy for life and my whole mood is much much better.

DI Adams:

I, David Isaac Adams, a male working as an Engineer on the Platinum mines has been an alcoholic for the majority of my life and in the last 25 years or so have been drinking in binges when I became overstressed or depressed. I have been to rehabs a number of times in my life but always reverted back to alcohol. I have been using the Naltrexone implant from Dr. GF Kirsten since 2004 and it’s the only effective treatment for me. Withoutit I doubt I would have been able to maintain my present lifestyle and employment. I highly recommend this form of treatment.

Darryl Leyds:

I am 57 years old. I have been drinking from the age of 22 years. It had become as a belief that when I had alcohol in my body that I could communicate with people and be social. In 2010 I heard of Dr. Kirsten that could help me. I lost 2 very good jobs due to alcoholism. I got my first treatment and it worked and was unbelievable. I have now stopped drinking totally.


I’ve been struggling with addiction for the past 13 years. I have been in and out of rehabs, tried every drug to come clean, seen psychiatrists, therapists etc. and found nothing worked for a long period of time. I got to a point in my life where I decided I can’t carry on the way I was. I tried the implant and found that it worked wonders for me, along with having the mind set of wanting to change. The implant has been my saving grace for the past year.

Adam Marsh:

I have had the Naltrexone implant for a year now, and it has helped me with my cravings and my depression. As a result I have saved my family members, my friends have also decided to come and have the Naltrexone implant done after seeing my progress.

Darryl Petersen:

When I first heard of this “wonder cure” as offered by Dr. Kirsten I was extremely sceptical as I had been suffering with alcoholism for more than 15 years. I was not keen when my wife urged me to try the treatment, but after a year and a half of treatment I have been clean and sober for exactly the same time. Never craving for any alcohol or any other drug. Dr. Kirsten has given me back my life and I am ever grateful for the implants received so far. I highly recommend it for anyone struggling with alcohol and drug abuse.

Bernice Ballack:

I started with the implant about 2 years ago for alcohol abuse. After my mother passed away I started drinking a lot, so bad that I started to vomit blood and nearly had no liver function left. After my implant I got my love for life back and lost my love for alcohol. I believe in the implant as I believe in the Bible.

Jacques Seaman:

My life turned for the better after the implant. I haven’t even had the urge to use again. My life changed so much, I feel so much better.

Dean Kelly:

I was very scared to get the treatment. But it was a big life changing decision. I rediscovered who I am and knew that I never want to go back to the person I became while abusing alcohol. I would recommend this to any one with an addiction. it saved me and my relationship with everyone I love.

Steven Lee Smit:

I received my first Naltrexone implant on 22 December 2013. It stabilized my mood and prevented cravings. It has helped me a lot to rehabilitate and live healthy. I fully recommend it.

Janco van Niekerk:

The implants help me to control my cravings for drugs and keep me clean. The implant made me the person that I always was before I started using drugs. The implant changed me for the better.

Chanél Griesel:

I wish to confirm that the Naltrexone implant really worked for me. I have been to rehab twice and it costs a lot of money and is not very effective. The biggest change in my life came after I had the Naltrexone implant for drug and alcohol abuse, because I can not use.

Russel Malan:

The implant made a huge change in my life, looking where I’m coming from I was lost and bound. I had no direction in life. I use to run the streets like a headless chicken not knowing where I was heading. But now I found ambition again thanks to the Naltrexone implant. I am attending college now as well and now I know what I want in life.

Michael en Amoré Beukes:

I used drugs and alcohol for 21 years. Over the years I have been to 5 rehabilitationcentres and psycholgists and couldn’t stay clean for even one day. I gave up hope because nothing worked, I was sure that I would never be able to stop. I was ready to take my own life. Today I have been clean for 11 months, all thanks to Dr. Kirsten and the Naltrexone implant. I have never been so happy in my life.

Neville du Toit:

The implant is really nice. For 8 years I was a junky and after the implant I couldn’t feel any better. Nothing worked for me as I tried everything. After the implant I feel like a new person. I am 30 years old and feel as if I am young and at school again. I can make friends, which I couldn’t do in the past. I can share things with my family and friends which I also couldn’t do in the past.

Rynardt Stoltz:

I have been using the Naltrexone implant for the last 2 years. The implant helps me a whole lot to break the addiction I have and helps me function normally. I would strongly recommend the implant.

Andre Economon:

I have been receiving the Naltrexone implant from Dr. GF Kirsten for the past six years and have been alcohol free for this period. I would highly recommend this treatment for any alcoholic or person who has alcohol related problems.


The implant has made a substantial and major improvement in terms of my addictions and craving although the key is to keep your mind occupied. The implant saves lives.

The Naltrexone implant changed my life totally. 10 years ago I was declared as bi-polar. My life was hell. Some days I feel good and others days down, my emotions were like a sea-saw. I became an alcoholic and drank to feel better. But when the alcohol was no longer in my system I felt exactly the same again. My problem nearly cost me my children and my marriage. After the implant my life changed. Life started making sense again and my relationship with my husband and children also changed. I wanted to changed the world and was interested in life again and to live to the maximum. I would recommend this implant to anyone who needs helps. It worked for me, so PLEASE try it.


I am an alcoholic, at least I was until I was introduced to Dr. Kirsten. I had been an addict for more than 15 years but on the very day that I had the naltrexone implant I stopped taking alcohol. I did not have any cravings what so ever. It was amazing! I could not believe the transformation. My work performance improved and I had time to do other things. I fell in love with life again. This is the best treatment ever and I have tried other ways to beat the addiction but nothing worked. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who has an addiction problem, it’s the best!!!!

Charl Jooste:

I have been a drug (crack & pill) addict for 10 years of my life. I have been in numerous rehab facilities – long and short term. I started 3 years ago with the Naltrexone implant. My life has made a complete180 degree turn. I use to think people would find my body in a ditch somewhere. Now I am successful, I am studying and stay on my own without people worrying if I am ok. This implant saved not only my life but dignity. 10 years of abuse tends to let you give that up. Now I will end up dead in a ditch but alive reaching for my dreams.

James Woods:

I would like to make a testament of the Naltrexone implant. I had the implant on the 2nd of January 2014 and the very next day I could feel and see the effects of the implant. I had NO urge to have a drink or a want for any drugs. My depression seemed to have left and I was able to socialize without needing any alcohol. The Naltrexone implant has made a huge difference to my life. It has changed my family life, work and social life in so many positive ways. I would recommend it to anyone who thinks they are battling with some or other form of addiction. My life is back on track, thanks to Naltrexone implants. More people need to subjected to this treatment, if it can work for me it can work for anyone.

Hendrik van Rooyen:

I never believed in the implant, until my Boss recommended that I should get the implant. It is now been 10 months and not a drop of alcohol over my lips. I believe it is a wonderful product, I am a new person and I don’t even crave alcohol. I told my friends of the product and they will definitely try it. Thankyou Dr. Kirsten, it works!!!!


I had a serious drug and alcohol problem for several years. After a few unsuccessful attempts to get sober. I contacted Dr. Kirsten for help. After receiving the implant I immediately had no more cravings for either drugs or alcohol. I have not used drugs or alcohol for 3 months now. I used to suffer from severe depression which also now has disappeared since using Naltrexone. I do believe this was a life changing experience for me.

Stephan Booyens:

I’ve been struggling with alcoholism for about 20 years. Have been to rehab and tried a lot of remedies. Then at last I found Naltrexone. It’s been 3 months since I had a drink. I don’t get thoughts of alcohol, not even cravings. It changed my life completely. I started a lot of new activities in my life since been on Naltrexone. I’m focussed and full of energy. My life changed for the better. This product is a must for all addicts, eating disorder patients and people with depression. Thank you to Dr. Kirsten for this huge opportunity.

Ed Alberts:

The treatment is very successful ( the implant). This treatment is like a miracle to me as a person, there is a clear difference in my life and as a person. The implant really works. Thank you.

Estelle Viviers:

I started with Naltrexone implant treatment in November 2013 for alcoholism and depression. The treatment was very effective and assisted me to function very effectively in a highly demanding professional environment as well as on a social level. No side effects were experienced and I experienced increased confidence, better concentration, quicker decision-making and calmness.MrDietrich: Naltrexone has changed my and my family’s life. It’s worked well both personally and in my work. I feel that this is such a crucial medicine in today’s society. I believe that all people will benefit from this immensely as it is only for the good. My friends and colleagues will testify to that. I appreciate Naltrexone and for what it has done for my life for the past 6 years.

Hi Everyone My name is Chris and i am an addict. If you or one of your family members, friends or just associates are currently finding themselves in the midst of a deathly drug addiction, well then join the club. BUT, how would you like, the addict, whomever it may be, not have to go into a rehabilitation centre ever again? Well i have been to them all, from the Houghton Houses to the Enocks walks. Most of the free rehabilitation centres are based around the word of God, which is fantastic as the addict needs to find God. However, if the addict falls the tendency is to then blame God, when in fact they need further counseling and support to stay clean. Also be given guidance to the various options available to them. Here is a very brief account of my miserable and truly deathly life over the past 20 years. Yes 20 years is how long i have been entrapped by my disease. The drugs that eventually became my life were crack cocaine and heroin. For the past, i would say 10 years, i had (and truly believed) to use these drugs every single day to be able to survive, not live but survive. Well, as i said, a brief account, here goes. The consequences of my using drugs landed me in jail 10 times, on the streets, more times that i can remember. Hospital 7 times for overdoses and Tara (psychiatric hospital) 2 times. Most of my friends are all dead and a girl friend dead from this disease. I am the lucky one or am i? AND NOW, i have become the blessed one and its because of this that i am writing, shouting and screaming out to all you addicts, families, friends and associates of addicts. For a long time already there has been an anti- booze pill on the market for the alcoholics. NOW, there is an anti drug implant available in the market. This is called Naltrexone. Naltrexone is a drug antagonist used for the treatment of drug addiction. The following drugs are treated cocaine, crack, heroin, cat, crystal meth, speed etc it has even been known to help with compulsive behaviour, such as nail biting. What this is, is a form of drug replacement therapy which allows the addict to be completely released from addiction by removing the affects of the drug absolutely. This works by blocking all the drug receptors in the brain and cancelling out the euphoric effects of the drug. There will be no more cravings or obsessions to use drugs with Naltrexone. If the addict decides to use while on Naltrexone they will quickly realise what a waste of time and money it is as the effect of the hit will be absolutely nothing. I myself am walking proof that this works, i had the Naltrexone implant done and since, i have not had one craving or obsession to use drugs again. I did put the Naltrexone to the test, to see if what they were saying about it was in fact true and i can absolutely and truly say that it did nothing to me, it was as if i smoked a normal cigarette. No affect what so ever. From 20 years of being gripped with this deathly addiction to now, where i am free and free for good. If my story is not enough to convince you that you now have a choice to live, then there are 600 other stories you can also listen to. They are all successful whilst on the Naltrexone implant. It is a recovery aid not, an alternative to recovery itself. Recovery must be viewed as a lifelong journey. What Naltrexone does is make it easier to take that first step in putting the drugs down. Looking at the cost of the rehabilitation centres today and the time spent away, Naltrexone offers the addict a chance to recover with no chance of relapse whilst on Naltrexone.


There were no side effects. I am no longer a type 2 diabetic and I don’t use any more medication. My blood pressure is always normal. I am a changed man after the Naltrexone implant.me psychiatrist and was diagnosed with major depression. I am also a hypertensive and diabetic for which I received medication. After I was discharged from every rehab it went well for a while, and as soon as I became anxious or had to face a specific problem, the depression came back again and I relapsed. It was pure coincidence that my wife got the info about Dr. Kirsten from our GP. We immediately searched the internet and for the first time heard the word Naltrexone. After reading all the info on the internet I immediately decided to have the implant done. On 14 June 2013 I had my first implant and while walking out of the consulting rooms my first words to my wife was “Halleluja”. We finally received the best medication possible. Within days of the implant I felt. 1. No shaking or cravings due to withdrawal, 2. Better concentration, 3. General relaxation and no depression, 4. NO anxiety, 5. My sleeping pattern went back to normal, 6. A healthy appetite, 7. I could remember things for long periods of time again. One of these days I will be receiving my 4th implant and my friends tell me I am the old friend again the one which they knew in the past. For well known I went to a 2005 I went on early pension. I am currently 60 years old. I was addicted to alcohol which occurred when I was about 50 years old. I realized that I couldn’t perform so well during lessons. I used more alcohol to cope. I have been to many rehabs country wide. At the end of 2011. I would highly recommend it to anybody with an addiction.

PN Janse van Rensburg:

I was a department head for the subject Biology, these days it is called life orientation at a very well known Afrikaans High School. I was in this position for 28 years and was a teacher for 34 years. At the age of 58 at the end of all together I manage to stay away from drugs. I have not had any problems with the implant and I look forward that it leads me to a good end to the addiction illness that I have battled with for years.

A Hilton:

The Naltrexone implant took away my cravings to drink straight away. It has helped me a great deal in my battle to stop drinking cravings. I feel that I can face the world again. The implant definitely works and rehabs don’t work.


I would like to say the implant helped me very much. I have managed to stay clean for a long time. I have managed to beat the addiction. Without the life that I thought it wouldn’t work. I’m proud to say I’m now more than 9 months clean and full of energy, sleep and eat well, have a normal great life that I thought I could never have.

JB Wolmarans:

I am a 36 year old man that has abused alcohol for most of my life. I had many jobs and never worked at the places for very long before I was dismissed due to alcohol use. Sometimes I worked 2 months at a place before I was dismissed. After the implant I do not have the urge to drink anymore, I feel like a new person and for the first time in my pain free of it at first but was so desperate that I could try anything to kick the habit. I made an appointment and the whole procedure was quick and sceptical to stop using and I was suicidal. It all changed when my doctor told me of naltrexone implants. I was very much tying, but would always go back to using again after a couple of months because the craving was always there. It was so bad that I gave up on centres decision for yourself. I made that decision by choosing to get the implant and it literally changed everything. It changed my motivation towards life, money training. All this time I was unhappy and couldn’t figure out why. Alcohol was why. The implant is the answer to another world.


I have been smoking heroin for 5 years on and off. I lost everything and my life was falling apart. I was on medication to stop smoking but it didn’t help me. I kept on relapsing and then I heard about Dr. Kirsten and his miracle implants and it has changed my life for the better. I don’t crave for anything anymore, my body feels great, like a new born person.

Congratulations to Dr. Gerhard Kirsten and his Naltrexone and Therapy Clinic BeatAddiction for changing and saving so many lives, as evidenced from the testimonials above. The Start Fresh changed its name to BioCorRx and the two are used interchangeably above.
