Palm Beach, Florida and Voorhees, New Jersey (PRWEB) November 27, 2007
Meditox, one of the nation's leading and fastest growing home-based medical opiate detox programs, has announced the expansion of its practice into the North Atlantic area. Located in Voorhees, New Jersey, the office provides business professionals, athletes and entertainers residing in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York with local, confidential access to Meditox physicians and addiction specialists. This announcement comes just weeks after its Pacific Northwest location opened in the Seattle area.
Professionals, such as doctors, lawyers and corporate executives, as well as others in high-profile, high-pressure positions, such as professional athletes and popular entertainers, often experience a disproportionate incidence of addiction to prescription medications. Frequently occurring after normal treatment for an acute injury, it is possible to become physically dependent on opiate medication after just 4-5 days of prescribed use. An estimated one in five Americans have become physically dependent at one time or another to some form of opiate-based prescription medication or painkiller, such as OxyContin®, Percocet®, or Vicodin®.
The Meditox Method was designed as an alternative to traditional prescription drug addiction treatment. Its treatment modalities are different from other drug detox programs because it is individually modified for each patient, taking into consideration not only their medical history, but their personal and professional issues as well. Adapted specifically for high functioning, motivated people who need individual attention and guidance, Meditox is an alternative to those seeking effective treatment but reluctant or unable to disappear into a long-term drug rehab program. Meditox offers patients confidential help without disruption in their daily routine.
"Because the Metropolitan New York area is such a competitive, driven and intense business center, we felt it was important to serve area professionals closer to home," said Dr. Mark G. Agresti, medical director of Meditox. "The Meditox Method is designed to meet the challenges that opiate addiction creates for these individuals who simply cannot drop out of life to detox. We provide a compassionate and practical alternative that is not only safe, fast and effective, but also absolutely confidential, comfortable and totally compatible with their ongoing daily lives and responsibilities."
Meditox is one of America's leading and fastest growing safe, confidential, and effective home-based medical detox programs. Staffed with some the nation's leading opiate-detox physicians and addiction specialists, Meditox has developed a specific, proven treatment protocol (The Meditox Method) that has enabled many business professionals, professional athletes, popular entertainers, and many others to privately and rapidly break their dependence upon illicit (e.g. heroin) or prescription opiates (e.g. OxyContin®, Percocet®, Vicodin®) - frequently while experiencing little or no physical discomfort in the process. The Meditox Method permits patients to detox primarily at-home, confidentially, while experiencing virtually no disruption to their normal daily activities. Meditox has locations in Palm Beach, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia/New Jersey, and Seattle.
