Upon selecting our esteemed opioid detox program, patients are admitted to a private room within an accredited hospital, ensuring exceptional medical care, privacy, and comfort. They undergo a thorough medical evaluation, encompassing a cardiac assessment, pre-medication, and general stabilization. Furthermore, we administer medication to mitigate withdrawal symptoms.
Patients typically spend 2 to 3 days in the hospital. If rapid detox is the chosen method, on the second day, they are transferred to a private room in the ICU. There, they rest through the acute withdrawal phase under the close supervision of our medical director and his team. The rapid detox procedure facilitates opioid detoxification, blocks receptors to eliminate physical cravings, and significantly expedites endorphin production and nervous system recovery.
Before transitioning to our recovery retreat for additional days, patients have the option to receive the Vivitrol shot. At the retreat, they continue to benefit from round-the-clock care and supportive medications throughout the post-detox adjustment period.
