We developed The Meditox Method specifically with the busy professional in mind
Palm Beach, FL and Edmonds, WA (PRWEB) November 14, 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 Pacific Northwest area. Located in Edmonds, Washington, the office provides business professionals, professional athletes and entertainers residing in the Seattle area with local, confidential access to Meditox physicians and addiction specialists.
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®. Those rates are even higher among busy professionals, such as doctors, lawyers and corporate executives, as well as other high-profile, high-pressure positions, such as professional athletes and popular entertainers. It is widely known that prescription drug addiction in the professional community frequently occurs 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.
The Meditox Method® was designed as an alternative to traditional prescription pain medication addiction treatment. Where self-managed withdrawal presents severe physical discomfort and can be medically dangerous; and traditional supervised opiate detox programs require hospitalization or admission to rehab facilities, Meditox was designed to successfully break opiate dependence in the comfort of one's own home within a few weeks, while experiencing little or no withdrawal symptoms, and without stopping everyday life.
"We developed The Meditox Method specifically with the busy professional in mind," said Dr. Mark G. Agresti, medical director of Meditox. "We know 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 opiate detox programs. Staffed with some of the nation's leading 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 on illicit (e.g. heroin) or prescription opiates (e.g. OxyContin®, Percocet®, Vicodin®) - without the physical discomfort and anxiety typically associated with opiate withdrawal. The Meditox Method® permits patients to detox primarily at-home, confidentially, while experiencing virtually no disruption to their normal daily activities. Meditox has additional outpatient drug detox center locations in Palm Beach, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia/New Jersey, and Seattle.
