What Is Rapid Drug Detoxification (also Known as Rapid Opioid Detox)?
A rapid drug detox treatment, also known as rapid opiate detox, anesthesia assisted detox, ultra-rapid detox or medical detox, is a form of accelerated opioid detoxification performed by anesthesiologists in a hospital setting. By placing the individual under sedation, doctors can use specific medication to complete the cleansing of the receptors in under 2 hours. Although the anesthesia detox phase is quite short, the best rapid drug detox centers require people to remain inpatient 5 to 10 days for a complete detox and physiological stabilization period.
What happens During Rapid Drug Detox?
During rapid drug detoxification, a patient is placed under general anesthesia in an ICU Unit. The anesthesiologist intravenously administers a combination of 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 the care of medical professionals.
“Rapid detoxification has become more and more popular because it quickly eliminates the extremely uncomfortable and even life-threatening opiate withdrawal symptoms.”
Waismann Method of Rapid Drug Detoxification
Nearly all medical professionals agree that rapid drug detoxification is not for everyone. With this in mind, a comprehensive physical evaluation should be provided before anesthesia detox is performed. 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.
