What is Rapid Detox?

Rapid detox is a medical treatment used to precipitate an opiate withdrawal. Developed during the 1970s, rapid detox was meant to ease the discomfort of an acute opioid withdrawal. The process entails sedating patients while an opiate blocker—such as naloxone—is administered to produce accelerated detoxification.

While many centers claim uniqueness, the process is considered rapid detox when antagonist drugs are combined with sedation. The length of time required for inpatient care should depend on each patient’s unique health needs and should be discussed with a medical professional before making any decisions. Factors to consider include:

  • How long was the patient using opioids
  • Dosage
  • Health history
  • Type of opioids
  • Patient current health condition and other health-related aspects.

Opiate addiction is a serious problem that affects millions of people worldwide. Rapid detoxification is an effective way to overcome an acute withdrawal and ease the transition into long-term sobriety. However, it is essential to ensure that treatment occurs in a private room of an accredited hospital by an experienced board-certified anesthesiologist.

On average, total inpatient care should vary between 5 and 10 days. For safety and the procedure’s effectiveness, patients must have adequate care pre and post-procedure. After rapid detox, cravings are managed with Vivitrol or Naltrexone. Although many centers claim uniqueness, when antagonist drugs are combined with sedation is rapid detox.

One of the advantages of rapid detox is that it can be completed in a matter of days, whereas traditional detox can take weeks or even months. The quickness of the procedure is appealing to many people struggling with addiction. It is important to remember that detox is only the first step in recovery.
