A private drug detox can be the first step towards an opioid-free life. The detoxification phase can be quite unpleasant or in some cases even physically risky. The sudden cessation of opioids use can create a physical turmoil. There are different options in drug detox methods, and no single approach is right for everyone.
The initial phase of a drug detox can be overwhelming for many people, that is why an inpatient medical facility it is usually the best option. In a hospital, medical staff will be on hand always to provide physiological stabilization and support. Withdrawal often starts within several hours after the last dose of opioids. Medical monitoring and withdrawal symptoms management are essential throughout the various processes of the body, as it rids itself of the drug.
Common opioid withdrawal symptoms include :
- Excessive yawning
- Elevated blood pressure
- Rapid heart rate
- Muscle aches
- Increasing watering of the eyes
- A runny nose
Additionally, opioid withdrawal symptoms intensity and length will vary from person to person. Predominant factors that can influence individual experiences with withdrawal include:
The range of opioid dependence and addiction – Extended period of daily use, can lead to high levels of tolerance and stronger withdrawal symptoms.
The half-life of the drug – In most cases when a drug is short-acting, withdrawal symptoms will be shorter than with a long-acting drug.
Combination of substances abused – A combination of different substances can create a unique withdrawal response. Symptoms of some drugs might exacerbate another.
Pre-existing emotional conditions – If a patient suffers from psychological conditions such as PTSD, depression or anxiety any symptoms of discomfort can be amplified and cause significant distress.
Chronic pain – Pain patients already have the disadvantage of discomfort due to injury. When you ad the real pain with symptoms of hyperalgesia due to the opioid use, matters can become quite challenging.
Private Drug Detox Options
One of the primary goals of a detox treatment is to eliminate withdrawal discomfort in a safe environment. Aside from preventing unnecessary suffering and risks, overcoming the detox successfully facilitates recovery. Some drug detox options available are:
Outpatient detox – This type of detox is rarely recommended and not very efficient. It might be an OK choice with a very mild opioid dependence.
MAT – The FDA approved drugs like buprenorphine and methadone, which are also partial and full opioid agonists. The goal is to maintain the patient on an opioid regimen infinitely, or gradually taper them off, what in our experience it does not see to work so well for many people. Withdrawal symptoms from these long-acting opioids can last week or even months. Additionally, because methadone works to slow the CNS responses, which controls breathing and heart rate, overdose can occur.
Drug Rehab – Most rehab programs follow a traditional 30 to 90-day program length. Most of these treatment programs provide 12-step support services including group therapy and meetings. Often the suggest some family participation and peer support. Drug rehabs often believe that drug addiction is a chronic and lifelong biological disease, exacerbated by environmental contingencies.
Lately, there has been evidence of drug rehabs billing patients for under delivering much needed medical treatment while exhausting patients’ insurance benefits.
Medical Detox – It is also important to for a detox program to recognize opioid dependence as a physiological issue. A high-quality opioid detox acknowledges that being under medical care and in a medical facility is not just the most comfortable options, but definitely the safest. Doctors and nurses can medically control the discomfort of the withdrawal while observing and maintaining vital at a safe level. Furthermore, particular medications can alleviate withdrawal symptoms, prevent cravings and block targeted opioid effects as patients recover. Proper hydration and medicines for stress-reduction are available to patients as well, what ensures a smooth transition during detox.
and finally Rapid Detox.
What is Rapid Detox?
Rapid Detox is a term for a type of drug detox which describes a medical technique of opioid detoxification under anesthesia. The process rapidly induces and speeds the detoxification phase, while blocking most of the distressful symptoms of opiate withdrawal. Waismann Method rapid detox treatment has saved thousands of people from falling deeper into the abyss of opiate addiction. People regard the rapid detox program worldwide, and we attracted press due to our superior reputation. This is due to our success rate in treating opiate addiction and dependency and prescription drug addiction. Launched in the late 90s, the rapid detox program recognizes opiate dependence as a disorder of the central nervous system, caused by continual use of opiates. Traditionally, providers treated opiate addiction as a psychological disorder.
Patients in the program sleep comfortably under t anesthesia while medications cleanse the opiates from their opiate receptors. Furthermore, the Waismann Method ® treatment is administered and available only in Southern California where patients are monitored 24/7. Accelerated withdrawal symptoms occur within hours instead of days, weeks or in some cases, months, as with traditional methods. Once patients wake up, they are no longer physically dependent on opiates, and they are unaware of the withdrawal that occurred during the procedure.
The rapid detox requires patients to stay in the hospital for a minimum of 24 – 48 hours. Also, pre-treatment includes comprehensive medical exams and tests, and we tailor our detox treatment to patients’ needs. After-care is closely monitored, and patients receive a daily dose of non-narcotic, non-mood altering Naltrexone, an opiate inhibitor, for up to 9 months. Thus, it eliminates physical cravings for opiates. Licensed therapists monitor patients’ emotional needs, and patients go to the Domus Retreat aftercare facility.
