Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
Opiate detox can be an extremely painful thing to go thorugh. However, with Las Vegas Rapid Detox’s groundbreaking 8 hour rapid detox procedure, patients can detox from opiates in only eight hours without suffering any signs of withdrawal. Las Vegas Rapid Detox’s procedure has been proven safe and in Las Vegas Rapid Detox is please to announce that they have reached the milestone of successfully performing 500 rapid opiate detox procedures without any complications.
Since July 2007, Dr. Thomas Yee, MD, an anesthesiologist with 20 years of clinical experience, certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology, has treated 500 patients from all over the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. Performed in certified operating rooms at accredited hospital or surgery centers, the advanced rapid opiate detox procedure (AROD), developed by Dr. Yee, has been used on patients addicted to various opiates including heroin, oxycontin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, dilaudid, vicodin, tramadol, etc.
“The best way to describe what we do is imagining 2 weeks worth of cold-turkey quitting being compressed into 8 hours while the patient sleeps under anesthesia,” Dr. Yee stated. “We know the physical withdrawal in quitting opiates is horrible, but the discomfort is finite; it does not last forever. The trick is to hurry up the withdrawal so the patient can get over it while sleeping.”
After the 8-hour treatment, the patients would receive 48 hours of one-on-one nursing care for recovery. After returning home, patients are required to have weekly counseling for 6 months to treat the psychological aspect of addiction. In order to prevent relapse, patients are also required to receive FDA-approved monthly injection of a long-acting opiate-blocker, Vivitrol, from nearby providers.
