What Is Rapid Detox?
Ultra-rapid detoxification (UROD) or rapid anesthesia detox, is a type of medical treatment for opioid withdrawal. This treatment occurs when a physician induces detoxification from opioids while the patient is sleeping under sedation. The detoxification process takes place in an intensive care unit, and the patient usually requires 2 to 3 days of hospitalization for a full treatment protocol. The treatment allows patients to attain complete freedom from opiates. This procedure eliminates physical dependency and dramatically reduces the craving for opioids. Meanwhile, the patient experiences limited amounts of withdrawal symptoms.
It is imperative to understand that although this treatment process is an extremely effective way to get through the withdrawal syndrome and eliminate physical dependence, it does not treat mental health disorders nor focus on addiction treatment. However, to achieve complete sobriety or effectively work on your emotional health, you first need a successful detox treatment program. Receiving medical assistance in a hospital setting is always the best option because it provides the highest level of safety and comfort.
What is the Difference Between Rapid Detox and Ultra Rapid Detox?
Both terms describe medical detoxification from opioids while under sedation. Throughout the years, different treatment programs name the process differently, trying to claim uniqueness. The truth is, it is up to you as the patient to do your due diligence in determining precisely what treatment you are receiving.
Other standard terms include:
- Rapid Drug Detox
- Ultra Rapid Detox
- Medically Assisted Detox
- Naltrexone Detox
- Anesthesia-Assisted Detox or Rapid Anesthesia Detox
- Accelerated Opioid detox
- Waismann Method®

Rapid Detoxification Safety
Rapid opioid detoxification safety and effectiveness rely mostly on the capability, responsible practices, and experience of the treating physician. Furthermore, the comfort and results of this procedure heavily depend on the accreditation and medical resources available at the treatment facility. For this and other safety reasons, Waismann Method® provides treatment in a full-service accredited hospital, under the direct care of a quadruple board-certified physician with over 21 years’ experience in rapid opiate detoxification under anesthesia.
Numerous studies have tested the safety and efficacy of rapid opiate detox. Generally, studies show positive results, but only when practitioners follow proper safety procedures and respect the when necessary parameters.
Unfortunately, some treatment centers are not as responsible or equipped as they should be. Choosing a center that operates in an accredited hospital and also staffs the program with experienced board-certified medical professionals can significantly improve the patient’s well-being and chances for success.
Detox programs offer different levels of medical care. Therefore, evaluating reputation, competency, and record of success is a critical part of finding the best treatment facility or, at least, the safest one.
- People are more likely to seek opioid treatment when there’s no fear of suffering through severe withdrawal symptoms.
- A board-certified M.D. manages the detoxification procedure.
- Symptoms of withdrawal are significantly reduced and the duration is considerably shortened.
- There is almost zero likelihood of abandoning treatment during detox, which results in nearly 100% opioid detoxification success rate.
- Patients can start naltrexone or Vivitrol therapy (opioid antagonists and blocker) immediately after detoxification.
- By significantly decreasing physical cravings, patients have a much better chance of achieving and remaining in full recovery.
How to Find the Best Rapid Detox Center?
The best way to assess the quality of care a treatment center provides is by asking the right questions. Also, you need to understand, there are significant differences between facilities, protocols, and, most importantly, treating physicians’ experience and ability to handle the unexpected. Furthermore, when you are doing your research, try verifying ratings, and reviews.
Questions to Ask Before Committing to a Medical Detox
How long is the total inpatient stay?
To reduce costs, some centers cut the length of inpatient care to insufficient levels. This practice can cause unnecessary discomfort and severe health risks. As “rapid” as this detoxification might seem, there is a transitional period where your whole system is trying to regulate. Every vital function, including blood pressure, heart rate, and fluid absorption, is trying to adjust.
Having an inability to produce endorphins can cause additional discomfort. Furthermore, after detox, people are hypersensitive to any discomfort. Be aware of treatment centers that have pre-set, standardized inpatient stays for all patients. The medical care you receive should ‘only” be based on your health needs and not on a general idea.
Can I stay longer in the hospital if medically necessary?
Although rapid drug detox is known as a fast procedure, patients should remain in the hospital until the medical team evaluates their physical stability and readiness for discharge. Hospital stays are usually 2 to 4 days but can vary by patient. Options to change the discharge date should always be available.
Are there different medically-assisted protocols?
Although you might be only interested in receiving anesthesia detoxification, not every patient is a candidate, and other comfortable options of accelerated detox should be available to you. If there is only one option for treatment, the treating doctor is likely to go that route, even if that is not in the best interest of the patient. People are different, and so are their health needs. For that reason, there should never be a one size fits all medical detox.
How much experience has the “treating doctor” had in rapid detoxification? How many patients has he or she personally treated? Is he or she a “board-certified” anesthesiologist?
These are probably your most pressing questions. If the treating physician does not have extensive experience in this exact procedure, if they are not board-certified or an anesthesiologist, run the other way!
Will I receive a private room, or will I be treated side by side with strangers?
Again, sadly enough, for financial reasons, some centers admit patients one day a week, so they can all be treated together to cut costs. The issue with these clinics is that the treating physician needs to divide their attention between multiple patients, which can lead to adverse events that go unnoticed.
Will I be discharged to a hotel room without appropriate inpatient recovery care?
Although loved ones have the best intentions, they often lack the medical expertise needed to handle a patient following detoxification. Furthermore, detox patients are anxious, fearful, and extremely sensitive to any emotional or physical distress. Having around-the-clock professional inpatient support is essential to ensure a successful recovery and, most importantly, prevent immediate relapse.
