Table of Contents

Successful team of medical doctors are looking at camera and smiling while standing in hospital ready to discuss Rapid detox possible complications

In a full service hospital you always have a team of doctors ready to help.When people ask: What are the rapid detox possible complications? It is important to remember that rapid opiate detox is an incredibly effective and humane medical procedure that has changed the lives of thousands. When health care providers follow adequate safety measures, rapid detox can be the most successful opioid detox available. However, often patients try to save money by going to lesser qualified doctors or centers that do not adhere to necessary safety protocols. Consequently, safety and the well being of the patient are compromised and the results could be tragic. With this in mind, the Waismann Method® professionals, refuse to cut corners. For this reason, the center has a reputation for being safest and most effective rapid detox program worldwide.

RAPID DETOX  Possible Complications

Things to watch out for that substandard Rapid Detox Centers might tell you:
1. Rapid Detox does not have to be performed in a full-service hospital. An outpatient “hospital setting,” like a surgery center or a clinic is safe enough.
There are risks associated with any medical procedure. Risks related to Rapid Detox are similar to the ones with a process that requires sedation or anesthesia. These risks are rare but possible. Having additional immediate medical resources, which a full-service hospital can provide, can make the difference between a safe or risky detox.
2. Rapid Detox takes only 24 hours inpatient.
As fast as Rapid Detox can remove the opioids from the receptors, the whole metabolism needs to re-regulate to find a new baseline.  This transitional phase can be physically and emotionally challenging for most. It is crucial that adequate professionals are present to assess and assist post detox.
3. It’s okay to treat multiple patients simultaneously.
It is not just disrespectful to place multiple patients in the same room, but not medically appropriate. Waismann Method Rapid Detox treats patients individually in a private ICU room. A patient’s physiological and vital responses under anesthesia may vary significantly. By treating one patient at a time, the treating doctor can provide undivided monitoring and immediate responses.

4. Being under general anesthesia for 2 to 6 hours is necessary.

General anesthesia for a lengthy period is not only unnecessary for an opioid detox but risky. Medicine evolves and archaic, lengthy detox protocols are replaced with new ones which patients tolerate much better and are also much safer.
5. It is safe for patients to go to a hotel, immediately after detox.
There are significant physiological and emotional changes after a rapid opiate detox. Patients can become physically and emotionally unstable and often hypersensitive to any distress. As much as loved ones would like to help, this is a very challenging time. When professionals are not the ones caring for patients, there is a much higher risk of dehydration, cardiac/pulmonary events, and even death. Also, episodes of excessive anxiety and depression can lead to immediate relapse if not correctly managed.
6. One detox protocol for all patients.
Human beings are complex and no two profiles are identical. Differences in personal and medical histories, along with behavior and psychological needs, can dictate different treatment approaches. Instead of patients adopting the detox we provide, we modify each treatment to fit each unique individual’s needs best.  Not all patients are candidates for rapid detox. For that reason, Waismann Method offers a number of different options for medical opiate-detoxification based on a comprehensive pre-examination.

Finding the Safest Rapid Detox Center

Now that we’ve addressed the rapid detox possible complications, you will have more tools to make a better choice. Also, you understand that the necessary first step towards complete abstinence of a particular drug is effective detoxification. Rapid Detoxification provides the use of opiate receptor antagonists, sedation, and other medications, that can shorten the duration of a withdrawal syndrome, reduce discomfort and improve the success odds. Furthermore, there have been many clinical studies demonstrating the safety and efficacy of anesthesia-assisted rapid detoxification. Studies have also shown that when ultra-rapid detoxification is performed under the proper circumstances, it has few adverse events and is relatively comfortable for patients. Some of the most compelling evidence of the benefits of this procedure in these reports is that physicians recommend that, in the future, rapid detox is available to a broader patient population.
