Our opiate detox treatments are performed under sedation by two MDs. During the rapid detoxification process, Naltrexone therapy is initiated. Naltrexone is an opiate blocker used to reduce cravings and to prevent any opiates from getting back into the brain receptors. The under the skin implant is the preferred route with our rapid opiate detox treatment. The implant dissolves on its own over a period of 2 months and does not need to be removed.
The patient is continuously monitored, in our in-patient setting, before, during and after the detox treatment. The following day, once stable, patients are released to the hotel to rest in the privacy and comfort of their own room, per their request. Patients, along with their companion and or caregiver, stay at the hotel overnight and are discharged the next day, after a medical examination and a continuing care program has been discussed. The patient is discharged 2 days after the rapid detox procedure.
Patients are totally opiate free, we do not substitute one opiate with another.
The patient is able to receive continuing care, return to work, spend time with family and friends, and resume normal activities much sooner than traditional opiate detoxification methods.
