anesthesia-detoxRapid Opiate Detox Under Anesthesia

Rapid Detox history began in the late 1970’s, when many different doctors have written about their work with rapid opiate detox protocols done under anesthesia. Some prominent doctors in this exciting and promising field of pharmacology, addiction and medicine include Dr. Kebler, Dr. Loimer, Dr. Resnick, and Dr. Legarda. These are the pioneers in the field of rapid opiate detox under anesthesia. Their important and revolutionary work has allowed thousands of patients to completely detox from opiates in a safe, effective, and humane manner, achieving freedom and better health in their lives once more.

Anesthesia Detox Safety

When anesthesia assisted rapid opiate detox is done in a responsible manner, its results are astounding and profound. The protocol should be done by trained doctors in a hospital where a number of different medical specialists are available to properly asses each patient’s case to ensure anesthesia detox is the correct approach. When it is done this way, it is often the best treatment option for many patients. While each individual patient will need to choose for themselves which method of opiate detox is right for them, rapid anesthesia detox is an effective and appropriate method of achieving freedom from addiction and dependence for a lot of people, and those who undergo the procedure are generally thrilled with the results they achieve.

Rapid Anesthesia Detox Location

Anesthesia detox is done in an inpatient setting under the care of skilled doctors and anesthesiologists, and is considered quite safe. While it has been researched since the 1970’s, it has really seen a huge popularity in the last ten years. The outcomes achieved with rapid opiate detox under anesthesia are much higher than other methods of detox from opiods. With this protocol, the length of withdrawal symptoms is significantly reduced, as is the severity of those symptoms. Most of the severe side effects associated with withdrawal that a patient would normally experience come while the patient is under anesthesia, and so they are not aware of the symptoms throughout the detox process.

Post Opiate Detox Symptoms

While the patient will still have some transitional discomfort after the procedure is over, these are much less than what they would experience with other detox methods. Plus, the patient stays in the hospital for one to two days after the procedure, so any additional withdrawal symptoms can be identified, mitigated, and even eliminated through the correct administration of medications. Once the patient leaves the hospital, he or she will go into continuing care, such as our exclusive recovery retreat for additional assistance through the stabilization assistance, and additional counseling. Rapid opiate detox under anesthesia is just the first part of the patient’s overall wellness program in getting off of opiods, but it is the most important part, and achieves remarkable results that could take weeks or months to achieve under other methods.

The Anesthesia Assisted Rapid Opiate Detox Process

The procedure for anesthesia assisted rapid opiate withdrawal works like this: The patient is put under anesthesia sedation for usually 30 to 90 minutes in the ICU of a full-service, accredited hospital with doctors and anesthesiologists who are well-practiced in the procedure overseeing the entire procedure. During the time the patient is under anesthesia, he or she is given an opiate antagonist, as well as several other drugs, that remove the existing opiates from their opiate receptor sites. Their vital signs are monitored at all times to make sure they are stable and that the withdrawal is proceeding successfully.

Once the opiates are removed from the patient’s body using other drugs, and the patient has successfully undergone any major withdrawal symptoms under the anesthesia, the patient is gradually brought out of sedation where they remain in the ICU through the rest of the day and night, where he or she can be monitored and given additional treatment as needed. Once physically stable, the patient is transferred to our recovery center for some additional professional care for a few days in order to maximize safety and effectiveness of the detox. The patient is then able to return home and resume normal activities like work and school relatively quickly after the procedure, and can remain opiate-free, usually with appropriate follow up care such as counseling and exploration of other methods of pain control (if this is an issue).
