Rapid Detox and How it Works

Rapid detox, sedation-assisted rapid detox, or any opioid detoxification using a combination of sedatives and antagonist medications are medical procedures, which occur while the patient is receiving close monitoring in a hospital over a 2-to-3-day period. The great benefit of using this type of medical detoxification is that it allows patients to attain complete freedom from opiates much more comfortably and successfully. Additionally, rapid detox eliminates physical dependency and significantly reduces withdrawal symptoms in just a few days. Meanwhile, Naltrexone and Vivitrol (the non-addictive medication given post-detox) also lessen the craving for opioids, which minimizes the risks of relapse.

It is imperative to understand that this type of opioid detoxification is an extremely effective way to get through the withdrawal syndrome and eliminate physical dependence. Still, it does not treat mental health disorders or underlying addictive behaviors.

Regardless of the issue that initially led you into opioid dependence, you first need a successful detox treatment program to achieve complete sobriety or effectively work on your emotional health. Receiving medical assistance in a hospital setting is always the best option because it provides the highest safety and comfort level.

Difference Between Program Results

Throughout the years, various treatment programs name sedation assisted detox differently, trying to claim uniqueness. Some claim to detox you from every substance, while others claim a miraculous neuro-regulation in a day; one that brings you to a pre-addiction state. As if your central nervous system had a reset button or as if you were just this gullible person with no common sense.

During the early phase of drug use, neurotransmission normalizes while the substance leaves the brain, and intoxication wears off. However, continuous drug use leads to changes in neuronal structure and function. The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) shows that these changes cause long-lasting or permanent neurotransmission abnormalities.

Opioids have several adverse effects on the central nervous system, including toxic effects on neurons. Additionally, opiate drugs also affect the brainstem, which controls basic survival behaviors. Although most people seem to get back full CNS function in time, how fast and the extent to which a full neuro-regulation is achieved will depend on many factors and is unique to each patient. Making false and miraculous promises to patients is dishonest, unfair, and borderline cruel.

Although sometimes you want to believe in miracles, it is not the right time when your health is on the line. As the patient, it is up to you to do comprehensive research to determine precisely what kind of treatment you are receiving and what expectations you should have.

Rapid Detox Methods Risks and Benefits

Rapid opioid detoxification safety and effectiveness depend on the treating physician’s qualifications and experience and the setting in which the procedure is performed. To ensure you receive treatment from the most qualified doctor, you must first verify his license, credentials, and board certifications. Furthermore, your safety and comfort heavily depend on the medical resources available and the treatment facility’s accreditations.

Due to all the reasons above, Waismann Method® provides treatment in a full-service JACHO accredited hospital, under the direct care of a quadruple board-certified physician with over 22 years’ experience in rapid opiate detoxification under sedation.

Risks

Numerous studies have evaluated the safety and efficacy of rapid detox. Generally, studies show positive results, but only when practitioners follow proper protocols and safety procedures to avoid adverse effects.
Unfortunately, some treatment centers are not as responsible or equipped as they should be. Choosing a program that operates in a full service accredited hospital with well-trained staff and experienced board-certified medical professionals can significantly improve patients’ well-being and success.

Remember, detox centers offer different levels of medical care. Therefore, evaluating reputation, competency, and success record are critical to finding the best treatment facility or, at least, the safest one.

Benefits

  • 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, resulting in almost zero likelihood of abandoning treatment and a nearly 100% opioid detoxification success rate.
  • Patients can initiate naltrexone or Vivitrol therapy (opioid antagonists and blocker) immediately. By significantly decreasing physical cravings with naltrexone, patients have a much better chance of achieving and remaining in full recovery.
  • People become emotionally present and are able to have a more accurate emotional assessment and adherence to whatever recovery care is indicated for their individual needs.

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, the treating physicians’ experience and ability to handle the unexpected. When researching the best rapid detox center, do your due diligence and seek verifiable sources to ensure the level of care you will receive.

Questions to Ask Before Committing to a Medical Detox

What are the doctors’ credentials, license, and length of experience providing anesthesia detox?

Exercise caution in believing self-promoting and exaggerated information found on websites. You will be surprised at how misleading the information can be. Sometimes, doctors claiming unrealistic success might not even be licensed to treat patients or have any real credentials from known medical institutions. Sadly enough, unverifiable, misleading claims can lead to unexpected negative results.    

How long is the total inpatient stay?

Some centers cut the length of inpatient care to insufficient levels because they want to reduce costs. However, this practice can cause unnecessary discomfort and severe health risks. As “rapid” as this detoxification might seem, there is a transition period during which the many-body systems affected by opioid use are trying to re-regulate to a new normal. This affects almost every vital function, including blood pressure, heart rate, bowel function, fluid and electrolytes, and sleep, to name a few.

Having an inability to produce endorphins can cause additional discomfort. After detox, people are hypersensitive to any pain. Be aware of treatment centers that have pre-set; standardized inpatient stays for all patients. Most importantly, the medical care you receive should be customized to your specific needs rather than fitting into a one-size-fits-all protocol.

Can I stay longer in the hospital if medically necessary?

Although rapid drug detox is a fast procedure, patients should remain in the hospital until a medical evaluation shows their physical stability and discharge readiness. Hospital stays are usually 2 to 4 days but can vary by patient. More importantly, 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 treatment option, the treating doctor will likely go that route, even if that is not in the patient’s best interest. 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 ultra-rapid opioid 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 because this determines your level of safety. If the treating physician does not have extensive experience in this procedure, if they are not board-certified or are not an anesthesiologist, run the other way!

Will I receive a private room, or will I be treated side by side with strangers?

Sadly enough, some centers admit patients one day a week for financial reasons, so all patients receive treatment together to cut costs. These clinics’ issue is that treating patients simultaneously does not allow doctors to provide the individual attention necessary to ensure safety. Often, when physicians divide their attention between multiple patients, adverse medical events 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.
