A detox from opiate painkillers means a patient will go through withdrawal which can be a daunting experience without help from a medical professional. Oxy IR withdrawal is similar to withdrawal experienced by all opiate medications. Oxy IR, a prescription opiate drug, is meant to treat moderate to severe pain. Taking it regularly for a prolonged period can cause a physical addiction.
One of the tell-tale signs that a patient has become addicted to his or her Oxy IR is the development of withdrawal symptoms once use is stopped suddenly. Withdrawal symptoms can vary from person to person in intensity and length. It can depend on the last dosage taken, the length and severity of the addiction and whether or not Oxy IR was combined with any other narcotics. Symptoms can affect a person physically and psychologically and include severe drug cravings, flu-like symptoms and tremors. Addiction professionals warn that patients who attempt to go through opiate withdrawal on their own risk severe complications including seizures.
An Oxy IR Detox Doesn’t Have to Be Painful or Degrading
Oxy IR can be taken safely but causes problems for many long-term users such as tolerance, dependence, addiction, withdrawal and potentially fatal overdose. Patients often let the perceived fear, suffering and degradation of opiate withdrawal keep them from getting help. Waismann Method’s rapid opiate detox treats Oxy IR addiction safely and quickly while minimizing withdrawal symptoms. We perform an in-hospital detox that uses intravenous medicine to clean the Oxy IR from patients’ opiate receptors. This takes less than two hours, during which time patients sleep lightly under general deep sedation.
They awaken free of opiate addiction and without the conscious awareness they even experienced accelerated withdrawal symptoms. We’re able to eliminate a painful withdrawal which is a large part of Waismann Method’s success in providing lasting recovery. We don’t use opiate replacements such as Suboxone or methadone to wean patients. We know this can lead to the need for a second detox. Patients are required to stay in the hospital for 2 to 4 days and can return home once discharged. Some choose to transition in the comfort and serenity of our Domus Retreat aftercare facility.
Oxy IR Withdrawal Symptoms
Possible Oxy IR withdrawal symptoms include:
- Strong drug cravings that don’t subside unless more of the drug is taken
- Body shakes and palpitations
Opiate withdrawal can be dangerous for some patients, especially those who don’t seek qualified help with detox.
This is why it’s so essential for medical professionals to handle this stage of recovery to ensure that patients are safe and comfortable. Patients who have taken Oxy IR for a long-term period, as well as those who’ve misused it or abused it, will likely have a more difficult time handling withdrawal. Waismann Method’s medical detox and transitional living facility are state-of-the-art, professional, compassionate and discreet.
