No matter what the drug, withdrawal can be extremely challenging for patients who are trying to get well. Withdrawal is a set of symptoms that develops when a patient tries to detox from a physical addiction. Withdrawal from opiates is notorious for being physically and psychologically stressful. The prospect of a long, painful and possibly degrading withdrawal keeps many people from seeking help for an addiction. Opium is an opiate (narcotic) drug that is potent and has the potential to lead to addiction, withdrawal and overdose. Withdrawal can be managed during this difficult period to make patients comfortable and guard against a relapse. Opiate-derived prescription painkillers are synthesized from opium and can lead to the same problems. Opiate withdrawal syndrome can include symptoms ranging from nausea and body aches to more serious seizures. Opium addiction is a growing problem that needs to be handled professionally to make sure patients detox safely, once and for all.
Waismann Method Eliminates Opiate Addiction Without Opiate Replacements
Waismann Method is an advanced rapid detox for opiates that is well known for offering the best in addiction care. For the last 11 years, we have successfully and safely detoxed thousands of patients from around the world. Our success lies in the medical procedure we administer in the safety of a hospital and the elimination of a painful withdrawal. We wipe out the addiction in less than two hours with our procedure that cleanses the opium from patients’ opiate receptors with intravenous medication. Patients are comfortable during this as they are lightly sedated by general deep sedation. The special medications we use are not Suboxone or methadone, which are opiate replacements that can also be habit-forming. The medication we use speeds up withdrawal symptoms, which develop and subside while patients are under deep sedation. The required stay for patients is between 3 and 6 days, after which patients can choose to return home. Those who wish to extend recovery can opt to transition into our Domus Retreat aftercare facility.
Opium Addiction Can Cause Withdrawal Symptoms Which Can Be Serious
Withdrawal symptoms and their severity and length can depend on many factors. These can include how an individual patient responds to his or her medication, whether other drugs or substances are being taken and the dose at last use. The length and severity of the addiction itself may also help determine how a patient experiences withdrawal. Symptoms can emerge within hours after a patient takes opium for the last time. These symptoms do not represent all possibilities but can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, other gastrointestinal issues, irritability, extreme anxiety, strong drug cravings that don’t subside unless more opium is taken, body aches and pains, tremors, headaches, insomnia and seizures. Waismann Method addresses these symptoms in the most comfortable and humane manner.
