Is Rapid Drug Detox Safe?
We Combine the Safest Rapid Drug Detox with an Exclusive Recovery Center



Does Rapid Drug Detox Work?

Rapid detox is the same as anesthesia-assisted opiate detox. Learn about the fast detox treatment process and its risks and benefits so you can understand the differences in drug addiction treatment options and choose the right one for you.

Waismann Method® rapid opiate detox is much safer and offers higher quality care than any other anesthesia detox available. We provide superior safety protocols, extensive experience, and a comprehensive approach to treatment.

Rapid drug detox is a procedure performed by anesthesiologists in a hospital setting. By placing the individual under sedation, doctors can use specific medications to complete the receptors’ cleansing in under 2 hours. Although the anesthesia detox phase is short, the best detox centers require people to remain inpatient for 5 to 10 days for complete detox and physiological stabilization.


What Happens During Rapid Detoxification?

During rapid drug detoxification, a patient is placed under general anesthesia in an ICU Unit. The anesthesiologist administers a combination of IV medications, including an antagonist, to induce and speed the withdrawal syndrome. The anesthesiologist and his medical team remain present during the entire rapid drug detox procedure. Once the patient wakes up, they typically receive medications to rest while staying in the ICU under medical professionals’ care.

“Rapid detoxification has become more and more popular because it quickly eliminates the extremely uncomfortable and even life-threatening opiate withdrawal symptoms.”

Waismann Method® Difference

Nearly all medical professionals agree that rapid opiate detoxification is not for everyone. A responsible doctor should provide a comprehensive physical evaluation before anesthesia detox is performed with this in mind. Other medical options should also be presently available for those who are not candidates. Furthermore, following rapid detoxification, the patient should have inpatient recovery care throughout the regulation and stabilization period. Rapid detox or any other opioid detoxification is not a cure-all treatment, and we highly recommend emotional care post-detox.

Benefits of Rapid Opioid Detoxification

Waismann Method professionals clearly understand Opioid Use Disorder’s seriousness and the level of care required to safely treat those struggling with this condition. Therefore, the Waismann Method includes treatment in a rapid detox center. There are intricacies related to opiate dependence and addiction, from physiological and psychological perspectives, which have adverse effects on the body and the mind. It is crucial for the success and safety of each patient that thorough inpatient care is provided. Furthermore, adequate Recovery care is just as critical as the actual rapid detox itself.

The biggest fear when dealing with drug addiction is the possibility of relapse. Most victims of drug addiction continually relapse, mainly because of ineffective detox services in rehab programs. Our rapid drug detox treatment will change that. Rapid Opioid Detox by the Waismann Method® results from some of the most successful clinical procedures in the field of substance rehabilitation.

We want to help you overcome addiction or opioid dependence. We also want to help you remain opioid-free. For this reason, after the initial rapid drug detox procedure, you will receive individualized assistance at our exclusive recovery center, Domus Retreat, for a period of up to 10 days. This way, we can work with you throughout the transitional phase to support your physical and emotional recovery to reach your new healthy, drug-free lifestyle.

Rapid Drug Detox Safety

Comprehensive Pre-Treatment Protocol

All the preparation leads to safer drug treatment. Having inpatient care at a hospital before rapid detox allows for:

  • A better understanding of how each patient responds to medications will be critical during rapid drug detox.
  • A thorough physical evaluation to ensure candidacy and information necessary for an individualized protocol.
  • Knowledge of what the patient has consumed or used in the last 24 hours. Drugs, vitamins, and even food can compromise the treatment.
  • Additional time for IV Fluids and Electrolytes and whatever else is necessary to ensure smooth detox. Often opioid-dependent patients lack the essential elements to maintain healthy functioning.

Rather than having you adjust to our treatment, the Waismann Detox™ medical team will modify the procedure to your specific needs. Opiates often change how your body functions. Frequently, opioid dependence may result in a slower metabolism, impeding your digestive system, heart rate, and blood pressure.

Based on the results of the thorough medical assessment, a personalized program is designed just for you. It’s designed to reverse your opiate dependency. Designed to eliminate physical cravings. Designed to get you opiate-free.

The Importance of a Hospital ICU

Due to the rapid transition during anesthesia detox, having an ICU-trained staff is highly recommended.  After detox, patients require close observation and monitoring. Specially trained nurses care for one or two patients at a time. ICU doctors and specially trained critical care nurses are available for assistance. ICU’s medical staff continually monitor the patient’s heart, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. Using an accredited hospital and an ICU, we enhance the rapid drug detox procedure’s safety while maintaining or improving its comfort.


Private Hospital Room

The medical staff’s attention must be solely directed to the patient being treated. Some treatment centers often put patients side-by-side while going through rapid detox from opiates simultaneously to save money. The issue with treating various patients at once is that others might not receive the attention they deserve in case of an adverse reaction from one patient. The practice of treating patients together is unfair and can lead to unnecessary, dangerous results.


Rapid Detox Under Sedation and Not General Anesthesia

Old protocols using 4 to 8 hours of general anesthesia detox are archaic and unnecessary. A much safer approach is detox under sedation within 1 to 2 hours. Moderate sedation usually allows the patient to continue oxygenation and airway control independently instead of general anesthesia, where intervention and airway support is often required. Typically, sedation allows your body to recover quickly and with significantly fewer side effects.

Inpatient Recovery Care

As fast as you go through rapid drug detoxification, your body still needs to self-regulate and find its new baseline. After the procedure, you usually remain in the hospital overnight for observation and continued medical care. Once discharged from the hospital to our exclusive recovery center, Domus Retreat, you will continue to recuperate with around-the-clock professional support.

The recovery center provides personalized attention in a warm, home-like environment. This environment gives patients the comfort and support they need while physiologically adapting to a new natural chemical readjustment. These include but are not limited to endorphin production, fluid absorption, body temperature control, sleep patterns, and mood regulation.
