Our new medical drug detox protocols so significantly reduce the pain and misery of withdrawal, that even those who have failed to get off drugs in the past are successful here. They can not only tolerate the detox, they can often remain relatively productive during much of the process.
New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
Michael Jackson might have been saved from what was apparently a tragic, and needless, drug-related death if he had received the breakthrough new drug detox treatment offered by Novus Medical Detox Center in New Port Richey, FL.
"We could have helped Michael Jackson safely and more comfortably withdraw from the drugs that he was dependent on, and begin to find less harmful alternatives to handle his problems," said Steve Hayes, Director of Novus Medical Detox, at news of the pop star's heartbreaking death. "Our new medical drug detox protocols so significantly reduce the pain and misery of withdrawal, that even those who have failed to get off drugs in the past are successful here. They can not only tolerate the detox, they can often remain relatively productive during much of the process."
At Novus Medical Detox Center, saving lives is a regular event, and doesn't require pop stars to attract attention. This week, CBS Evening News Senior Correspondent Byron Pitts interviewed a 33-year-old Novus patient who said her life was saved by coming to Novus Medical Detox Center before it was too late. The interview was part of a Jackson-related national CBS News piece on the epidemic of 50 million Americans who regularly abuse painkillers and other prescription drugs.
Michael Jackson was reportedly taking the opioid painkillers Demerol, Dilaudid and Vicodin regularly, and OxyContin from time to time. And most recently has been linked to the a potent and dangerous anesthetic called Popofol.
"These narcotics were not treating the cause of Mr. Jackson's pain and distress, only addressing the symptoms," Mr. Hayes said. "And because narcotic painkillers eventually begin to make pain even worse than it was to start with -- a condition called 'opioid-induced hyperalgesia' -- Mr. Jackson may have felt the need to take more and more narcotics until, in combination with Xanax and other psychotropic drugs, they overwhelmed his system -- a tragic and completely avoidable death."
Mr. Hayes said the real responsible parties for Mr. Jackson's death are "Radio Medicine Doctors", physicians who prescribe drugs to suppress symptoms instead of finding and treating the source of the condition. "This is like turning up the volume on your car radio to mask the annoying noises your car has started making. And the longer you ignore it, the worse it's going to get."
Mr. Hayes said Michael Jackson's bizarre behavior may very well have stemmed, at least in part, from extensive prescription drug addiction. "A person on the cocktail of drugs that Michael Jackson was reportedly taking for decades could, at times, have little if any sense of what he was doing."
