Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 26, 2013
Las Vegas Detox’s breakthrough rapid opiate detox procedure stops physical addiction to opiates in just 8 hours without any significant physical withdrawal symptoms.
The procedure, developed by Dr. Thomas Yee, has been performed on more than 500 patients since 2007, without any complications. The rapid detox is performed under anesthesia in a hospital. Patients suffering with opiate drug addictions to can now go through the 8-hour detox treatment under anesthesia and wake up free from their addiction without any significant withdrawal symptoms.
After the treatment, patients are required to take opiate blockers such as monthly injection of Vivitrol or daily oral pill of Naltrexone for one year to prevent relapse. Patients are also required to undergo one year of counseling to treat the psychological causes of their addiction.
The 8-hour detox treatment under anesthesia is performed in an accredited and certified hospital or surgery center operating room by an M.D. anesthesiologist certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology. The facility used for this procedure included North Vista Hospital, Desert Springs Hospital, Red Rock Surgery Center, and Surgery Center of Southern Nevada, all located in Las Vegas.
The process essentially compresses two weeks of cold-turkey quitting into 8 hours. The patients do not feel the intense accelerated withdrawal because they are under general anesthesia. After awakening, the patients feel no physical withdrawal, and are treated with 48 hours of continuous, one-on-one, private nursing care for recovery before discharge.
According to the CDC, 40,000 Americans needlessly die from drug overdoses every year. Millions more suffer from opiate addiction and the struggles it brings everyday. Unlike regular rehab, Dr Yee’s 8-hour treatment under anesthesia does not give patients opportunity to check themselves out from the facility prematurely because they could not stand the physical withdrawal. The prospect of quitting without the physical withdrawal should encourage many people with opiate drug addiction to seek treatment to quit.
