Dihydrocodeine Detox

Table of Contents

An addiction to Dihydrocodeine necessitates a proper medical detox to safely rid patients of the drug and ease them through withdrawal. Dihydrocodeine is a narcotic prescription drug used for pain relief, cough suppression and to treat shortness of breath. The opiate medication can lead to problems including side effects, tolerance, physical and/or psychological dependence, withdrawal and overdose. Physical addiction is present when withdrawal symptoms develop once use is stopped. The prospect of having to suffer through withdrawal keeps many from seeking detox. They worry about having to deal with the pain from symptoms including nausea, vomiting, body tremors and muscle and bone pain. With the Waismann Method of Rapid Detox, detox is supervised by a medical team and undertaken in a hospital to ensure safety. The withdrawal process is accelerated by our medical procedure, minimizing symptoms to promote maximum comfort. A Dihydrocodeine detox doesn’t have to induce panic or fear.

Waismann Method’s Dihydrocodeine Detox is Safe and Opiate Free

Detox is the process the body must go through when it’s being rid of a drug or alcohol. There are many programs and services that specialize in opiate detox. Waismann Method begins with thorough in-hospital medical tests to rule out any potential underlying problems. From there, our anesthesiologists lightly sedate patients for the medical procedure that uses medicines intravenously to cleanse Dihydrocodeine from their opiate receptors. This takes less than two hours and patients awaken free of their Dihydrocodeine addiction. Also, they emerge from sedation without the conscious awareness they even experienced an accelerated withdrawal. Many other detox programs use opiate replacement drugs such as Suboxone or methadone to wean patients. These medications can also be habit-forming, causing the need for a second detox. Waismann Method doesn’t use these opiate substitutes in our detox.

Supportive and Optional Aftercare Offered Following Waismann Medical Detox

Many opiate detox facilities require long stays. Others couple their detox with therapy that’s based on blame, shame and guilt. Waismann Method makes every effort to ensure our patients are treated humanely and with respect. We build our patients back up, never making them feel guilty about their problem. The required stay for our medical detox is 2 to 4 days. From there, patients can return to their lives, confident that Dihydrocodeine addiction is in the past. Some others may choose to extend their stay and continue recovery at our Domus Retreat transitional living facility. Here, patients are pampered and cared for by our support staff of therapeutic and holistic practitioners. Private suites are offered for accommodations and patient privacy is never jeopardized. Therapies and services include group and individual counseling, massage, relaxation and biofeedback.
