Facing a withdrawal from opiate painkillers can be daunting and may lead some to hold off on seeking help. An appropriate medical detox is essential to help patients achieve recovery in a safe, effective and humane manner. The use of Opana and other narcotics can lead to tolerance, physical and psychological dependence, overdose and the need for detox. Opana contains oxymorphone, a potent opiate used to manage moderate to severe pain. A tolerance can develop with regular use, meaning the drug’s effects are diminished. This may cause some to escalate their use or abuse the medication in other ways. Addiction can develop swiftly and is marked by intense drug cravings, increased use, feelings of being consumed by the drug and other negative consequences. A physical addiction is present when withdrawal symptoms appear once use is stopped abruptly. With Opana, these symptoms can include vomiting, agitation, tremors and pain. Withdrawal is the process the body goes through when it is detoxing from Opana.
Withdrawal Symptoms Typical with Opana Addiction
Withdrawal symptoms associated with codeine use can be brutal if not managed properly with medically-assisted detox. The Waismann Method of rapid detox can medically manage withdrawal and eliminate the nasty symptoms associated with it. Withdrawal can set in within hours of the last dose. Not every person addicted to Opana experiences symptoms in the same way. For some it is relatively mild. For others, especially long-term users or abusers, it can be more difficult physically and psychologically. Symptoms can vary widely among patients but can include severe drug cravings, extreme irritation, insomnia, sweating, nausea, vomiting, runny nose, yawning, cold flashes, restlessness, weakness, cramps, diarrhea, chills, muscle and bone pain, agitation and muscle twitching. These symptoms can be more severe among long-term users or those who have abused the drug.
Opiate-Free Opana Detox is Safe and Humane with the Waismann Method
The Waismann Method differs from other drug treatment programs for several reasons. First, we don’t use opiate replacements to wean patients from opiate addiction. These replacements can lead to a dependency and the need for a second detox. Secondly, our patients don’t need to make a weeks-long or months-long commitment and are not locked down. Our rapid detox is safe, humane and completely confidential. Our pioneering procedure, performed in a southern California hospital, uses intravenous medications to cleanse patients’ opiate receptors and takes less than two hours. The procedure takes place while patients sleep lightly under deep sedation. Once they awaken, they have no conscious awareness of the withdrawal that took place during the procedure. Our highly successful and safe treatment can reverse Opana addiction in a matter of days, helping you get back on your feet. We also offer an optional transitional living facility for those who want to continue recovery with counseling and therapies like massage and biofeedback. We provide a serene, private environment where guests can relax and regroup.
