How Safe is Rapid Detox ?
Rapid Detox can be one of the safest and most effective forms of opioid detoxification, when done responsibly. All too often, patients are left uneducated about the most valuable information, when searching for the best detox center.
Unfortunately, patients safety has been jeopardized by some Rapid Detox Centers whose financial greed has led them lower costs, by cutting on adequate inpatient time and available medical resources. In recent times, “rapid detox” has become a catch-all term, encompassing a broad range of unregulated overnight treatments. To treat more patients, these centers repeatedly ignore basic safety protocols ultimately jeopardizing patient’s comfort and well-being.
A growing number of drug treatment centers are using the term “Rapid Detox,” ” 48-Hour Detox”, “Anesthesia Detox,” and “Ultra Rapid Detoxification” to describe a number of different procedures. Some are still being performed under general anesthesia, while others in simple overnight surgical facilities or outpatient clinics with no additional medical resources.
When anesthesia assisted detox is carried out without following sufficient or even basic safety measures; the results can prove to be tragic. Some of the consequences of these irresponsible practices can be the unnecessary physical and emotional distress for patients and their families, immediate relapse, ER admissions, and even fatalities in hotel rooms.
Waismann is for those who require the ” Best Rapid Detox” available.
An Accredited Hospital Increases Rapid Detox Safety
A safe rapid detox should be performed in an ICU of a full-service accredited hospital where different medical specialists are available. Hospitals provide an immediate availability of resources that clinics and surgery center cannot. At the Waismann Institute, we have medical experts with almost two decades of experience. Our team has created a superior protocol to ensure safety and efficacy of the detoxification treatment.
Doctors assess the following conditions:
- Cardiac issues
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Blood pressure conditions
- Smoking habits
- Patients who are overweight
- Patients consuming multiple substances
Our specialists are available to consult and advise additional treatment options designed to meet each patient’s specific medical needs.
Waismann Method Medical Group has maintained a reputation for almost two decades of unmatched experience with opioid treatment, unparalleled dedication, and superior medical care.
Thorough Inpatient Medical Evaluation
Patients are admitted to the hospital at least a day before anesthesia detox is performed. From the comfort of their own private room, patients undergo a thorough and individualized evaluation. This process is deemed necessary for our medical experts to gain a further understanding of how to best proceed and design the most effective course of treatment.
Some say they cannot financially afford the Waismann treatment, and that is entirely understandable, but can your health and well-being afford a cheaper version?
Highest Standards of Medical Care
The Waismann Method® Medical Director, Dr. M. H. Lowenstein, has performed thousands of anesthesia-assisted rapid detox procedures for patients from all over the world. We have concentrated all our efforts in one exclusive location in Southern California, for those seeking our extensive knowledge, experience and unparalleled success.
Once a patient has been pre-screened, our Quadruple-Board Certified Medical Director, with over 20 years of experience, will closely supervise and perform the medical opiate detox. He will provide the patient with the best option of opioid detox treatment based on their dependence history, medical conditions, and individual needs.
Patients that undergo anesthesia detox are treated in their private rooms in the ICU; where they will receive Dr. Lowenstein’s undivided attention. Anesthesia Assisted Detox ( Rapid Detox) requires sedation along with other medications that result in a safe, comfortable, and effective opiate detoxification. The precise combinations and amounts of these medications are crucial factors in making the process comfortable and successful.
Sedation vs. General Anesthesia for Rapid Detox
Medicine continuously evolves, we have been the driving force in the medical opiate treatment evolution. The Waismann Method team has been performing rapid detox since the late 90’s. General anesthesia was part of the protocol; however, because of our pioneering efforts in this field, we understand that general anesthesia is not only unnecessary, but it can also be significantly uncomfortable and even dangerous.
Currently, Rapid Detox protocols that use general anesthesia for two to five hours (or more) are considered archaic. These protocols tend to jeopardize the safety and pose additional risks to the patient. The Waismann Method of Rapid Detoxification uses sedation lasting anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, thereby avoiding general anesthesia and all of its associated risks. Waismann Method ® Treatment Center employs the very latest in medical advances to make a shorter sedation period possible for patients. This process tends to be the safest alternative to general anesthesia.
Post Detox Recovery Assistance
It is crucial to the success of the treatment that the patient is properly assisted throughout this physiological and emotional transitional period. Organs are working hard to find a new baseline; functions like heart rate, blood pressure, fluid absorption, body temperature and brain chemistry are trying to regulate. While this process can be smooth and natural for some patients, others may find it challenging.
Other Rapid Detox Centers simply discharge patients to a hotel, immediately after detox, under the care of a loved one. As much as family members or friends may desire to help, they are not appropriately trained to deal with the emotional instability that can result from chemical imbalances. Anxiety, emotional outbursts, and relapse are all possibilities after detoxification. However, when patients receive immediate care from professionals who are trained in diffusing and resolving these types of situations, they tend to improve quickly. This increases the chances of success and long-term recovery.
