> anyone know how useful it is for people who deliberately self harm?

I know a woman (mid-20s, someone I know from college) who says it really helped her with self-injury and dissociation problems. She takes it along with lithium and Wellbutrin. She was having serious problems -- in and out of the hospital, etc. -- until she got this treatment and got into an intensive treatment program (group and individual therapy several hours a day) for people with these types of problems. I was really impressed to see how well she was doing when she returned to school. And she swears by the naltrexone.

For myself, I find the idea of an opioid antagonist frightening, but everybody is different! (I have plain depression, no trauma history, self-injury, dissociative symptoms, etc., so my experience is less likely to be applicable to your situation.)
