they tolerated the procedure well, emerged from anesthesia with no withdrawal
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
A revolutionary eight-hour rapid drug detoxification program combined with injections of FDA approved Vivitrol has produced stunning results in the treatment of hard core drug addicts, halting their addiction to opiates and preventing relapses of addiction to heroin and Oxycontin in 50 patients at four Las Vegas hospitals and surgery centers.
The procedures conducted over the past three years by the Las Vegas Rapid Detox Clinic (http://www.saferapiddetox.com or rapiddetoxlasvegas.com) included eight hours of intensive rapid detox under anesthesia before patients were injected with Vivitrol as the second half of the ground breaking addiction breaking treatment. The patients were from all across the country and all were heavy users of opiates; however, they tolerated the procedure well, emerged for anesthesia with no withdrawal symptoms, and left the hospital two days later.
Prior to the system revolutionized by the Las Vegas Rapid Detox Clinic, patients would commonly have to endure torturous physical agony during detoxification for the 10 to 14 days recommended by the pharmaceutical supplier of Vivitorl before being ready to receive injections of the medication, which can block opiate receptors for 30 days. Prior to the innovative rapid detox procedure many addicts were either unable or unwilling to complete the standard lengthy painful, wrenching detox portion of the treatment. To date, 50 patients have successfully undergone the combination eight-hour rapid detox and Vivitrol injection program and have left the Las Vegas hospitals with no signs of withdrawal or relapse. After completing their initial treatment, patients are required to receive follow-up monthly injections of Vivitrol from doctors for 12 months while undergoing twice-weekly substance abuse counseling. There has been no relapse among the patients who have followed the protocol during the 12-month period.
Las Vegas Rapid Detox has performed nearly 500rapid detox treatments, including 50 with the combination rapid detox and Vivitrol injection treatments without incident or complication. The clinic plans to expand the rapid opiate detox procedures to more hospitals in other states in the near future.
