Some people feel that their only option for treating an opiate addiction is a Norco home detox. They often make this decision because they want to save time or money. Others may try to detox at home because they want to keep their problem a secret. Opiate detox can be dangerous so patients should make every effort to seek professional treatment. Norco addiction requires more than willpower. People who have a strong desire and the best intentions may find that they are unable to handle detox on their own. Norco is an opiate painkiller that can lead to physical and/or psychological dependence after regular use. A physical addiction will result in withdrawal once use is stopped. Fear of withdrawal is what keeps many people trapped in the cycle of addiction.
Programs that offer a home-based detox may not address the underlying causes of opiate dependence or treat it thoroughly. Also, it’s very important that patients receive support during this difficult time and home detox doesn’t allow for that. There are also programs that offer some sort of detoxification but send patients home or to a hotel to recover. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, even fatal. This is especially true for those who abuse the drug or take it at high doses or for long periods. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, restlessness, muscle and bone pain, severe agitation, depression, hallucinations, seizures and coma.
Waismann Method Helps Manage Withdrawal and Reverses Opiate Dependence
Many detox and rehabilitation facilities offer opiate treatment but patients need to do their research to find the best fit. Many don’t provide thorough treatment that addresses the physical dependence while controlling withdrawal. Addiction specialists and medical personnel have spent the last decade perfecting the Waismann Method of Rapid Detox. This rapid detox for opiates begins and ends in a hospital so patients can recover in a safe, supervised setting. We perform medical tests to rule out possible underlying conditions that may have contributed to the dependence. Once our procedure is complete, we monitor patients around the clock.
The actual procedure involves the use of intravenous medicine that cleans the opiates from patients’ systems quickly. This takes less than two hours and patients are sedated during this time with general deep sedation. They awaken a short time later and are not consciously aware that they have already experienced withdrawal. Our procedure accelerates withdrawal and symptoms develop and pass while patients are sedated. This allows them to move on quickly with their recovery and many choose to return home after a few days. Others transition with us at our Domus Retreat aftercare facility.
