What is Rapid Detox by the Waismann Method®?
First, we need to explain what Rapid Detox is. Secondly, we will describe what Rapid Detox by the Waismann Method really means. Why is the Waismann Rapid detox considered so much safer and better than any anesthesia detox out there?
What is Rapid Detoxification?
A rapid detox treatment, also known as rapid opiate detox, anesthesia detox or ultra-rapid 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 detox centers require people to remain inpatient 5 to 10 days for a complete detox and physiological stabilization period.
What happens during Rapid Detox?
During rapid detoxification, a patient is placed under sedation in an ICU Unit. A combination of medications, including an antagonist, are given intravenously to induce and speed the withdrawal syndrome. The anesthesiologist and his medical team remain present during the entire rapid detox procedure. Once the patient wakes up, they are typically given 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.”
Benefits of the Waismann Method of Rapid Detoxification
Nearly all medical professionals agree that rapid 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, should not be looked at as a cure-all treatment, emotional care is strongly recommended.
The Waismann Method professionals clearly understand the seriousness of Opioid Use Disorder and the level of care required to safely treat those struggling with this condition. Therefore, the Waismann Method includes treatment in an accredited hospital followed by a few days at a private recovery center. There are intricacies related to opiate dependence and addiction, from both 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. Adequate Recovery care, is just as critical, as the actual rapid detox itself.
