Hydrocodone Detox

The Waismann Method Has been providing the most effective Hydrocodone Detox, for two decades.

Prescription medications containing Hydrocodone can be habit-forming, leading to the need for medical detox. Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opiate (narcotic) that provides pain relief and cough suppression. It’s also available in capsules, tablets and liquid form and it is the main active ingredient in a number of prescription painkillers. The most common drugs containing hydrocodone are VicodinLorcetLortabNorcoTussionex, and Vicoprofen.

Opioid drugs bind to the receptors in the brain and central nervous system. In addition, they act as a central nervous system depressant, reducing breathing rate, heart rate, blood pressure, and even decreasing body temperature. Hence, when someone is dependent on a hydrocodone-based painkiller, the sudden cessation can have distressing consequences as the brain and body work twice as hard to adapt. Therefore, it is not recommended to stop taking hydrocodone without adequate medical supervision and guidance.

Hydrocodone Withdrawal Symptoms

Although Actiq is intended only for breakthrough pain for cancer patients, studies have found that most prescriptions for it are “off-label,” meaning, the drug is being prescribed for other conditions. The “morphine lollipops” or “perc-o-pops,” (street name), have been prescribed for migraines, arthritis, severe back pain, neuropathy and various injuries. Opioid painkillers have the potential to lead to addiction which requires close monitoring of patients, for signs of abuse.

ACTIQ uses a particular method to deliver fentanyl to the patient. The drug comes in an oral transmucosal lozenge on the end of a lollipop stick. As sweet and as innocent as this drug might look ACTIQ is an incredibly dangerous drug and extreme caution is necessary, whenever using medications containing fentanyl. Furthermore, the use of this medication outside its strict parameters may cause an array of health risks and including death.

Hydrocodone Rapid Detox and Medical Assisted Detoxification

Thousands of people from around the globe have relied on Waismann Method medical detox and anesthesia-assisted opiate detox for almost two decades. The anesthesia hydrocodone detox process uses medications that cleanse the opiates from patients’ receptor sites. This takes place in a hospital in less than two hours, and patients usually stay with us 7 to 10 days total. After discharge from the hospital, typically on the 3rd day, patients go to our Domus Retreat facility for care during the transitional phase.

Other options of detoxification without anesthesia are also available. Our medical detox is known not only for its safety and success rates but also for the compassionate and discreet approach we use. Hydrocodone addiction is a severe problem in the United States. In general, it tends to happen quickly to unsuspecting prescription recipients taking painkillers for legitimate pain reasons.
