You would probably never attempt to get through a major illness or injury without medical intervention. Drug addiction is no different and should always be left to professionals to guide you, home detox could be risky. MS Contin is a powerful narcotic prescription medication used to treat around-the-clock pain. This time-released drug also has the potential to lead to misuse, abuse, tolerance, dependence and the need for detox. The Waismann Institute in California provides a professional, medical detoxification for opiate dependence that’s safe and effective. We offer thorough medical testing to rule out any underlying conditions and detox patients fully in a short amount of time. Our program also includes a recovery period that is closely monitored by medical personnel. The most difficult aspect of any drug detox is the withdrawal phase that follows it. Symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, body shakes, pain, agitation and seizures can be unbearable for people who try to go it alone.
Home Detox from MS Contin Should be Medically Supervised
Some MS Contin treatment programs are home-based, meaning patients aren’t adequately supervised as their bodies begin to detox. Some facilities perform a detox and send patients home or to a hotel to recover. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, so this is not a good idea. People who become dependent upon MS Contin should steer clear of programs that don’t provide thorough monitoring after detox.
MS Contin Addiction Can Be Reversed Quickly With Rapid Detox
The Waismann Method is an in-hospital procedure that utilizes the most advanced approach to opiate addiction. It is our belief that patients need quick treatment that doesn’t involve opiate replacement drugs such as methadone or Suboxone. These can lead to the need for another detox. Waismann Method knocks out the physical addiction in less than two hours using intravenous medication that cleanses the drug from patients’ bodies. This is done while patients rest lightly under general deep sedation, performed by our anesthesiologists. The procedure accelerates the withdrawal process and patients awaken without the conscious awareness that they have already experienced this phase. This allows patients to move forward quickly with recovery and helps them avoid a relapse. Once discharged after a thorough medical evaluation, patients can decide whether to return home or transition in our Domus Retreat aftercare facility.
