Rapid detox from opioids is a safe and proven detox treatment. The ultimate risk associated with substance abuse is lack of adequate treatment due to fear or substandard programs.
The Opioid Scourge
A lot of substance users feel like mice on a spinning wheel – especially after undergoing several rounds of rehab. Traditional methods offer distress, pain, suffering, and humiliation without much of a chance for short-term or long-term success. Most of these treatment programs are built to keep people eternally in treatment. Sadly enough, continuous profit is on treatment and not the cure. The goal of living functional lives free of cravings and crashes is every opioid user and loved one’s dream. Fortunately, medical professionals with adequate experience in opioid addiction, prove that treatment can’t be toxic for a successful recovery.
Heroin and Opioid Addiction Treatment
As early as 1997, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published a consensus statement regarding concerns about opiate therapy and treatments. Relapse rates were high; at times approaching 100%. This data includes those primarily addicted to heroin and opiates like Oxycodone, Dilaudid, hydrocodone, and codeine.
According to NIH, most people with drug addiction issues begin using in their twenties. The use is often due to the interplay of “biological, psychological, sociological and economic factors,” with occasional use rapidly escalating to dependence. Periods of abstinence or minimal use become interrupted by relapses and, in some cases, arrest and incarceration. Statistics show that 1/4-1/3 of all drug-related deaths (due to accidental overdose, accidents, chronic diseases) are related to opiate abuse. There is substantial evidence that opioid addiction is a medical condition with continuous use resulting in cravings and pathophysiologic changes in the brain.
The medical community agrees that the exact mechanism explaining why some develop addiction but others do not is still unclear. This brings us to the question: why can rapid detox from opioids be the most effective way to achieve complete detoxification?
What is Rapid Detox from Opioids?
Rapid detox from opioids should start with a comprehensive physical evaluation. Rapid Detox can be the best option for individual patients and not the right approach for others. In those cases, the physician should discuss different medical options for detoxification with the patient.
The Rapid Detox procedure works by blocking the opioid receptors while the patient is under sedation. This twilight sleep ensures that the patient does not feel the unpleasant effects of withdrawal while the body goes through accelerated detoxification.
How does Rapid Detox Works?
Rapid detox is an opioid detoxification, performed in the ICU of an accredited hospital. The patient is placed under sedation, during which time IV antagonist medications induce the withdrawal syndrome. The purpose of this protocol is to condense the detox into less than a couple of hours while the patient sleeps. The technique allows a quicker, more comfortable and effective detoxification. Meanwhile, the patient is receiving medical monitoring in the comfort of their private room.
When facilities perform rapid detox from opioids responsibly, the results can be astounding. The success of this type of detoxification is a much higher than with the traditional methods in drug rehabs. This process significantly reduces the length and severity of the withdrawal symptoms. Patients overcome most of the severe discomfort while unconscious. Therefore, resulting in a higher success rate and a much better chance for a successful recovery.
