The choice to seek out a Norco detox is never an easy one. Although, having professional medical treatment can make the process much more comfortable. A medical facility can help ensure a safe, smooth and comfortable detox. Norco is a narcotic pain reliever that contains hydrocodone, an opiate, and acetaminophen, a non-narcotic analgesic.
Norco detox begins when a patient stops taking the drug after physical dependence has developed. Detox can also be initiated by a treatment professional.
Norco detox often requires medical supervision. Without medical care, withdrawal can be risky and may cause serious health issues. Untreated withdrawal symptoms can lead to dehydration, hypertension and other dangerous conditions.
Over time, Norco users develop a tolerance which requires more and more of the drug to get the same effects as they initially did. Their metabolism becomes accustomed to having the drug and may rely on it to function as accurately as it can. If an individual has been using the drug regularly and over an extended period, he or she will probably experience withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop. Norco detox can be quite uncomfortable, and the fear of suffering may keep them from seeking help.
Norco Rapid Detox
What’s so particular and unique about the Waismann Method ® treatment approach is that it treats Norco dependency quickly and safely using medical science. We manage the withdrawal phase so well that patients don’t have to suffer the indignities of this condition. We begin the process by providing thorough medical testing to rule out any possible underlying issues. Next, we administer non-addictive medication, used to cleanse the Norco from patients’ receptors and to eliminate the physical dependency.
We have a number of different options based on each patient’s unique situation. Not all patients are candidates for rapid detox, and different manners of detoxification are available and discussed with patients in that case.
Patients are usually in the hospital for one to four days with the remainder of the time at the Domus Retreat (www.domusretreat.com). There we work with the emotional health of our patients, while staff supervises the physical transition. Opiate dependency causes numerous changes in brain chemistry and organ functions, so after detoxification, it is paramount that patients are appropriately monitored for at least a few days to regulate essential physiological functions and prevent medical complications or immediate relapse.
Unlike us, some doctors directly send their patients to a hotel room within a day after the procedure and hope that a family member or caregiver will be able to assist and assess the physical and mental symptoms. Consequently, safety standards and the well-being of patients might be at risk.
Our ability to minimize withdrawal so efficiently puts us at the top of our field and promotes long-term recovery. Our total inpatient stay is 5 to 10 days, and patients can go home once discharged from our private recovery center, Domus Retreat. We give our patients the support and tools they need to live a life free from opiate addiction.
Addiction Treatment Options
There are a number of available treatment options, but not all programs are effective in combating the condition safely or efficiently. Norco detox by the Waismann Method doesn’t use potentially addicting opiate substitutes to wean patients off their medications. This “substitution” or “replacement” therapy relies on prescription drugs such as Suboxone, Methadone or Subutex.
M.A.T. drugs are also opiates and over time patients can develop a reliance on them, which may lead to the need for additional detox. Replacement therapy, while prevalent in many parts of the country, does not provide immediate detox for patients who wish to become completely opiate free. This treatment can drag out for months, even years.
- Traditional drug rehab treatment methods for Norco addiction, such as talk therapy along with medication to lessen the pain of withdrawal – often have less than 10% success rates after the first year due to Hydrocodone’s powerful, physically addictive properties.
- W Method treatment has the highest success rate in the field of opiate detoxification in the last decade. After one year, 70% of our patients, do not go back to using opiates.
- We address addiction and opioid dependence as a physical condition we treat with advanced medical techniques.
- Our Norco detox treatment is in a full-service hospital and under the strict supervision of one of our quadruple board-certified medical director. Patients are followed every step of the way from admission to discharge.
- Waismann treatment allows most patients to return to a productive life in a matter of days or weeks. It also eliminates the need to spend months in judgmental and archaic rehab programs.
What are the Symptoms of a Norco Withdrawal?
Patients who are physically dependent upon Norco or other opiates will go through a withdrawal period once they quit Norco. That is why a medically assisted opiate detox, can be necessary. Opiate withdrawal can be harsh and sometimes dangerous to handle alone.
People who are opiate dependent can benefit from the help and support of a professional treatment program. There’s no need to detox alone. Besides, this can be dangerous if you already have additional health issues. Treatment that does not carefully address physical and psychological conditions can lead patients to immediate relapse.
Norco withdrawal symptoms can include:
• Symptoms of intense drug cravings
• Cold sweats
• Possible seizures.
Getting Norco Detoxification Treatment
You do not have to abuse prescription opioids like Norco to become dependent on them. Reports show that over “20 tons” of hydrocodone-based drugs, including Norco, are created each year in the US alone. It is no wonder why so many people need opioid treatment. The question is “which is the best option for a Norco detox treatment?”
Waismann Method® has been successfully treating thousands of Norco opioid-dependent patients, for the last 20 years. Furthermore, we will tailor each treatment to maximize success and safety. Our staff does not believe in judgemental forms of characterizing individuals. We also think everyone should deserve to receive treatment with kindness and respect.
