RAPID OPIATE DETOX

Opiate addiction is a very dangerous condition that does not only ruin the lives of those abusing the drug, but can also negatively impact their loved ones.  Opiate addiction means that a person craves the drug constantly and that they need that opium based drug to get through the day. This kind of drug addiction means that a person cannot function without the drug and they often engage in criminal activity to secure their next high.

Opiates have great pain-relieving properties. Many people take an opioid based drug in order to manage their pain. This class of drugs can make a person feel high and euphoric.  If prescription drugs are taken for a long period of time the addict builds up a tolerance to the narcotic. This means that a person needs more and more of the drug and as a result they are dependent on it, both physically and psychologically.

Opiate detox is essential for the treatment of a prescription drug addiction patient because the withdrawal symptoms from the drug are very strong and often severe. There is a need for professional medical help and there is also a need for medication. These withdrawal symptoms include vomiting, severe abdominal pain, chills and cold sweats, headaches, anxiety, fever, diarrhea, panic attacks and other problems. However, withdrawal symptoms are not life-threatening.

Rapid Opiate Detox

Rapid Opiate detox is a medically approved opiate detoxification program which is widely used. This type of treatment means that the addict abruptly stops taking a drug. The addict is weaned off the addictive drug, under an anesthesia. Under the anesthesia assisted rapid opiate detox program the body is cleansed of all the opiates in approximately four to six hours. Without this treatment it can takes around 16-24 hours for the body to expel opiates from its system and in some cases even longer. After the rapid opiate detox program is complete the patient can receive further treatment, such as Suboxone treatment, to overcome his or her addiction. Suboxone is one of the most effective medications in the treatment of opiate addiction such as the painkillers such as Fentanyl and Oxycontin.
