Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Detox Centers
What is a Medical Detox?
A medical detox is a medication assisted withdrawal protocol designed to specifically assist and stem the seemingly overwhelming pain and medical problems that are associated with the sudden decline of intake of the substance in question.
Will the Detox process be painful?
Coming down or withdrawing from drugs or alcohol can be associated with being sick and having painful muscle cramps, uncontrollable anxiety, sleeplessness, seizures, and even death in some rare cases. With a medically supervised medicated withdrawal, the symptoms that are associated with detox are alleviated and even in some cases, completely pain-free. In most cases, you will feel minimum withdrawal symptoms while in a medical detox.

Drug and Alcohol Detoxification has long been accepted as an essential, first step towards recovery from addiction. In the absence of professional medical assistance, most will fail in an attempt to free themselves from the grip of drug and/or alcohol addiction. Successful detoxification is essential before long-term recovery can begin.
Detox is not a “cure” for addiction. Detoxification is the first step in a process that is necessary to engage oneself in rehabilitation. Designed to reduce withdrawal symptoms for individuals dependent on heroin, methadone, Oxycontin, opium, Percocet / Percodan or codeine, anesthesia assisted opiate detoxification allows for engagement in a variety of aftercare programs aimed at placing drug addiction into remission.
Purpose of Rapid Detox
The purpose of Rapid Detox is simple, it will help to reduce, minimize, or to eliminate altogether the signs and symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal. This decreases the chances of relapse and increases the likely hood of a full recovery.
Rapid Detox is not intended to replace a fully comprehensive treatment and recovery program. It is simply “a ‘procedure’ designed to help an individual tolerate the withdrawal symptoms from opiates with much greater comfort.”
Anesthesia Assisted Opiate Detox
“Anesthesia Assisted Opiate Detoxification” is the first step, representing only the beginning of a long process of healing and recovery. Once an individual is ‘clean’ of opiates, it is always recommended they make some form of counseling their next step in the recovery process. Aftercare is a paramount component of the recovery process!
Anesthesia Rapid Detox procedure Or Ultra Rapid Detox,(AAROD) AND SOMETIMES KNOW AS (UROD), is a fast detox alternative to rapidly detox the body from opiates in 6 hours or less. (AAROD) is done under anesthesia and is done under the strict medical care of a doctor, anesthesiologist, and a nurse. Our staff is trained and certified in the AAROD procedures so the client can be assured that their detox will be safe and effective. The latest technology is utilized to assure that the procedure is done effectively and safely.
AAROD has been used for over 10 years and is now becoming more mainstream for detox procedures. The length of stay at an AAROD detox facility is usually 48 hours and the length of stay at a normal opiate detox is 5-10 days depending on the usage.
After detox is completed it is highly recommended that a follow-up treatment plan is in place to handle the issues that are still not handled even though you feel great. Rapid detox or AAROD is in no way treatment for addiction, it just handles the physical manifestations that are associated with withdrawal from opiates.
When you arrive at the detox center you will be met by the licensed anesthesiologist and nurse to discuss and prepare you for the procedure. The patient is then put into a medically induced deep sleep for 6 hours and the detox protocol process starts.
Once under general anesthesia and deep sedation, the opiate antagonist is administered and also a strict formula of medications specifically designed to flush out the patients opiate receptors. There are two nurses that are present during the whole procedure and they monitor the patient’s vitals and make sure that the procedure if flawless in its execution. Once the procedure is complete the patient usually stays for 24-48 hours for observation and monitoring to make sure that the detox was successful.
Detox is not a cure for addiction to drugs or alcohol. It is only a means of getting rid of the physical manifestations and pain that is associated with a steady decline of the substance that is being abused. It is highly recommended that you seek treatment in one of our inpatient treatment centers before you go to a detox center. This will allow for an easy transition into treatment without the temptation that can lead to poor choices once again.
When Is An Inpatient Detox Necessary?
Detox from drugs or alcohol is needed once it is determined that the safety and well-being of the client is in question. Withdrawal symptoms can be very painful and the fear of the pain when stopping could be what is in the way of someone seeking treatment.
Who determines the need for a medical detox before entering an inpatient addiction treatment center?
Determining if a Medical detox is necessary before treatment for the addiction can be started is usually done by the trained and certified intake counselor and can in most cases be determined over a phone consultation or even through e-mail in special cases.
