Have you become dependent upon the prescription narcotic painkiller Roxicodone? If so, you may be like many other people who fear getting help because of the suffering that’s characteristic of opiate addiction. Thousands of people from around the world have turned to the Waismann Method in the last decade for advanced opiate detox. Our medical procedure, performed in an accredited southern California hospital, is safe, effective, discreet and compassionate.
We effectively and safely manage withdrawal to ensure the safest, most comfortable detox in our field. It can be dangerous to attempt Roxicodone detox without medical supervision. The potent opioid medication is used to manage moderate to severe pain and has the potential to be habit-forming, leading to tolerance, addiction, overdose and withdrawal. A physical addiction to Roxicodone is present if withdrawal symptoms set in once use is stopped or gradually lessened. These symptoms can be quite serious.
Commonly-Reported Withdrawal Symptoms Associated with Roxicodone
Not every patient will experience the same symptoms once they stop using Roxicodone. Symptoms can last weeks or months depending on the severity of the addiction, the amount used and the frequency with which Roxicodone was taken. Commonly reported Roxicodone withdrawal symptoms include strong drug cravings, vomiting, chills, diarrhea, nausea, yawning, sweating, cold flashes, chills, restlessness, insomnia, muscle and bone pain, cold flashes and involuntary leg movements.
More serious and severe symptoms can develop in long-term users or abusers. The fear and anxiety over having to go through a withdrawal period keeps many patients from seeking help for their addictions. Just knowing that you don’t have to suffer this way can make all the difference.
Medical Management of Withdrawal Lessens Anxiety of Detox
The Waismann Method of rapid detox accelerates withdrawal symptoms during our medical procedure that takes less than two hours. Intravenous medication is used to cleanse Roxicodone from patients’ opiate receptors while they sleep lightly under deep sedation. Once they awaken, they are not consciously aware of the withdrawal symptoms that took place while they were out. This can take the fear out of detox. Patients are then monitored around-the-clock and can be discharged within 2 to 4 days.
We don’t rely on opiate replacement drugs such as Suboxone or methadone to wean patients and lessen withdrawal. These replacements can lead to a second dependency and the need for another detox. Our Domus Retreat transitional living facility offers continued treatment in a spa-like, therapeutic and serene environment. Here, patients can continue working on recovery to address any underlying issues and better themselves physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Domus Retreat is optional, offered to those who want to extend recovery with luxurious accommodations in a private suite. As always, patient confidentiality is at the top of our agenda so there is no need to worry.
