Detoxification

URD - Ultra Rapid Detox

58396321 - female doctor adjusting infusion bottle in hospital.

As a part of our cooperation with Dr George O’Neal from the Western Australia University, we have introduced an ultra-rapid transition from opiates to the opiate blocking agent (Naltrexone). Carefully selected medications in this procedure are introduced under light sedation avoiding uncomfortable feelings. Throughout this procedure, a patient is under general anaesthesia, asleep and completely without any painful sensations. Most of withdrawal symptoms occur while the patient is under anaesthesia and, therefore, he/she does not feel any pain or discomfort; when the patient awakes, any physical withdrawal from opiates has mainly gone.

Due to the nature of the procedure, majority of our patients require hospitalization from one to three days before being discharged.
Applying /Performing the rapid detox method to heroin addicts, the patient immediately loses desire for daily consumption of the drug and has no desire to use the substance at all in later stages. On the other hand, transition from methadone daily consumption to complete discontinuation takes longer. Methadone addicts go through slower and more careful transfer from methadone to suboxone. This normally takes around one week. Following this, patients are given a rapid introduction of antagonist, which abruptly stops suboxone and introduces naltrexone. Approximately seven to ten days are needed to achieve the required level of success which is, in effect, substantially faster than the standard three- week methadone detox and significantly reduces hospitalization time and costs of the treatment.

After diagnostic procedure, once seriousness of addiction is deteremined, as well as consequences and personality disorders of a patient, we can start/proceed with detoxification.

It is very important in this phase to protect the patient from withdrawal syndromes so we do that quickly and painlessly always keeping in mind patient`s individual needs.

Our approach is individual and truly personal so therapy is tailor-made /determined for each particular patient and not by “one size fits all” principle.

It is very important to administer right type and right amount of medication to avoid any potential withdrawal syndromes and keep the patient completely comfortable.

During our comfortable detox the patient is administered with I.V. solutions to accelerate elimination of toxins from the body. Right combination of medication will introduce patient to anaesthesia so a big part of detox is carried out while sleeping/through sleep. Therefore the patient does not feel anything and has no discomfort during this process. He is completely asleep, hence he does not feel anything and does not remember any problems.

Detoxification enables us achieve a drug-free body, however, patient’s mental status is still unstable. Urge to use drugs and avoid reality is still strong. The desire to feel rush and euphoric effects of drugs is still present. Increased level of dopamine in one part of the brain and its deficiency in another; significant fluctuations in the level of serotonin and norepinephrine combined with deficit of endogenous endorphins causes this instability. To improve this condition we prescribe treatment either with blocking the brain receptors or substituting them with alternative medication. With our treatment we effectively relieve the patient’s consciousness and sub consciousness from memories related to drugs, stabilize sleep, mood and willpower.

Frequently post-detoxification emotional state includes insomnia, loss of appetite, depression, sleep disturbance and lack of motivation. Each of these conditions is easily treated with appropriate medication.

Opioid detoxification takes between 5 and 15 days and varies depending on the type and the quantity of abused substance.

They will understand and face possible triggering factors that may lead to repeated drug use. This program therefore helps prevent the relapse after discharge to home environment.

With completion of this program (FDT), for a full and complete long-term recovery, we suggest that the patient should remain displaced from his/her home environment next 1-12 months ( FDRT Full Detox Therapy & Moving Toward Therapy “). These programs includes a long-term rehabilitation treatment.

Staying /Remaining out-of-town or out-of-state significantly contributes to a successful recovery. This way our patient is removed from stressors at home where he/she has easy access to drug dealers, old friends associated with the drug use and other familiar reminders leading to never ending story of relapse and remission.

FDRT program includes a long-term rehabilitation treatment.

  • Pharmaceutical therapy (Naltrexone, Ibogaine…) is aimed at correcting neurotransmitter disarray in the brain of an addicted person.
  • Individual and Group Psychotherapy will help learnhow to take control of one’s life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.
  • Quantum Medicine Therapy (bio-resonance technology, for Balancing System, clearing blockages and interferences in the energy fields of the living body) will help promote health and wellness.
  • Hyperbaric Chamber Therapy (therapy that involves administration of high concentration Oxygen in a pressurized tube throughout the body) will help detoxification processes and stimulate the release of substances like growth factors? and stem cells that promote healing.
  • Holistic Therapy (Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Homeopathy, etc.
  • Macrobiotics Training /Education Therapy,
  • Sport Recreation Therapy will additionally help overcome a complex process of addiction.

This phase takes 30 days. In this protocol, a patient is placed in residential suite (apartment) with a fully organized schedule, all-day controlled food and drinks in particular that are adapted to detoxification and recovery. Addictologist, physician, psychologist, personal guardian-interpreter and auxiliary personnel supervise the patient 24/7.

This program is designed for the patient to get engaged in physical and mental recovery, to adopt and get exposed to a healthy way of living. Patient becomes aware as to what caused his/her addiction, what damage has been done so far and learns how to prevent relapse. They will understand and face possible triggering factors that may lead to repeated drug use. This program therefore helps prevent the relapse after discharge to home environment.

With completion of this program (FDRT), for a full and complete long-term recovery, we suggest that the patient should remain displaced from his/her home environment next 6-12 months (“Moving Toward Therapy “). Staying /Remaining out-of-town or out-of-state significantly contributes to a successful recovery. This way our patient is removed from stressors at home where he/she has easy access to drug dealers, old friends associated with the drug use and other familiar reminders leading to never ending story of relapse and remission.
