If you are suffering from a physical or psychological dependence on Demerol or other prescription painkillers, it’s important to know there is help to reverse this problem. Demerol, the brand name for meperidine, is included in the class of drugs known as narcotic pain relievers. It’s used to treat moderate to severe pain but can be habit-forming. A responsible Demerol rehab will treat the physical symptoms by addressing withdrawal which can be unbearable for some. The onset of withdrawal is a key sign that physical addiction has developed. Many different rehabs are equipped to deal with this though they may differ widely in their approach. Demerol addiction is serious and should be treated medically to ensure safety and comfort. Some rehabs have a religious approach. Others may rely heavily on behavioral modification. Some make you follow “steps” and repeat them until success is achieved. The problem with many rehabs is that they can require long-term, in-patient stays while others label you an addict for life and require lifelong meeting attendance.
Waismann Method Offers Demerol Detox Based on Medicine, Science
The Waismann Method of rapid detox recognizes Demerol dependence as a central nervous system disorder caused by continuous opiate intake. Many other treatment, detox and rehab facilities view opiate dependence as a psychological disorder or a result of personal weakness. Our program is compassionate and doesn’t tear you down by using guilt or shame to help you recover. Waismann Method’s holistic approach to Demerol detox focuses on the mind-body connection, nutrition, exercise, recreation, communication, relaxation and balance for the return to school, work and social life. Our individualized programs don’t believe in a one-problem, one-solution approach. The Waismann Method utilizes the most advanced medical biotechnology available to end drug dependency. Our scientific approach is beneficial for everyone and we use therapy as part of the recovery process. Our medical procedure takes less than two hours and the total required hospital stay is 2 to 4 days. Also, we manage withdrawal medically to reduce – even eliminate – most symptoms.
Opiate-Free Demerol Detox Ensures Patients Don’t Swap One Addiction for Another
The Waismann Method doesn’t use opiate replacement drugs such as methadone or Suboxone to wean patients. We know this can lead to a second addiction and the need for additional detox. Many other programs are based on opiate replacement therapy which can substitute one addiction for another. Our medical procedure answers the depletion of natural endorphins in nerve cells due to an external supply of opiates. Our in-hospital procedure uses intravenous medications to cleanse the opiates from patients’ receptors while they sleep lightly under deep sedation. This takes less than two hours and they awake without the awareness they experienced an accelerated withdrawal. For those patients who want to extend recovery, we offer our Domus Retreat transitional living facility. Here, patients can relax and regroup with individualized treatment plans that include massage, biofeedback and group and individual counseling. Our programs are safe, effective, humane and discreet.
