Roxycontin is another name for OxyContin or roxycodone, two powerful opiate medications that have the potential for abuse and addiction. Both of these drugs contain oxycodone, the narcotic ingredient that can become habit-forming. Opiate detoxification is a necessary step for patients who have become addicted to their prescription painkillers.
Waismann Method’s opiate detox offers safe, quick and effective Roxycontin detox treatment. We ease patients through withdrawal and help them recover in a short amount of time. Detox can refer to the process the body goes through once it begins to withdrawal from a drug. More generally, it can refer to a number of procedures and services offered to help patients get clean from drugs. Physical addiction is marked by the onset of withdrawal symptoms which can be difficult and dangerous to go through alone. Waismann Method’s oxycodone detox can help patients essentially skip this phase which provides for a safe and comfortable transition.
Patients Who Want to Become Opiate-Free Do Not Have to Suffer
Many people who become addicted to opiates believe they have to suffer through a miserable and degrading withdrawal to get well. This is not the case. Most professionals don’t advise going through an unsupervised withdrawal because of potentially dangerous complications which can arise. This can depend on the length and severity of the addiction, as well as the last dosage taken. Opiate withdrawal symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, body shakes and tremors, feelings of intense agitation, depression, muscle and bone pain, insomnia and severe drug cravings that don’t lessen unless patients take more of the drug.
Withdrawal can be much more severe among those people who have abused the drug at high doses or routinely mixed it with other dangerous substances. Waismann Method provides oxycodone treatment that is discreet and compassionate. We don’t rely on opiate replacements such as methadone or Suboxone to wean patients because we know they can become dependent upon these too.
Medical Detox for Opiates Can Help Patients Recover in Days
Waismann Method’s detox and opiate rehab offer patients a chance to recover safely and quickly while receiving the utmost respect. We build our patients back up physically and mentally, ending the suffering over the course of 2 to 4 days. Staff admit patients to our program and undergo tests to rule out any possible underlying medical conditions. The detox procedure takes less than two hours and uses intravenous medication to rid the patients’ opiate receptors of oxycodone addiction. Our anesthesiologists lightly sedate patients during the procedure which accelerates and minimizes the withdrawal phase. Patients awaken opiate-free and without the awareness that the withdrawal symptoms developed and passed while under sedation.
Patients are then monitored around the clock until discharged. Once patients are ready to leave the hospital, staff transfer them to our exclusive aftercare program, Domus Retreat. Here, patients are able to relax and recover in a comfortable environment without the stresses of daily life. In addition, they can work toward continued recovery through therapies and holistic treatments including individual counseling, massage and acupuncture.
