Opioids are frequently prescribed by doctors for pain relief. This highly-prescribed drug is also frequently overused and people can quickly become dependent on this type of drug. Overcoming this dependency is not something you have to do alone. We at the Texas Rapid Detox Center understand you may feel left on your own to deal with this, but we are prepared to help you break free.
Opioid use disorder is a serious condition that can impact a person’s life in multiple ways. It can be hard to break free from the hold of opioids, but there is help available. Here at the Texas Rapid Detox Center, we provide an opioid detox treatment that efficiently treats opioid use disorder in a matter of days. By coming here for opioid detox, you can safely get through the detoxification process and onto a happier life, free from dependence on opioid drugs.
Opioid detox is the process of opiates being removed from the system, clearing the body back to its regular state. This naturally occurs when withdrawing from opiates, whether on one’s own or through treatment. However, without medical assistance, the natural detoxification process can be very unpleasant and even dangerous.
In the process of returning the body to its normal state, withdrawal symptoms cause a reversal of the original effect of the opioid. While taking the drug gives a high and elevates your mood, during withdrawal, mood is lowered and you may even experience depression and/or anxiety. Suffering through a detox can feel like being sick with flu-like symptoms that can even be fatal if not monitored by medical professionals.
Through our opioid detox treatment, medical professionals ensure the safety of patients and unpleasant symptoms may be avoided or lessened. To aid in opioid detox, we use a process called Rapid Anesthesia Narcotic Detox (RAND). This method of medical detox uses anesthesia during the process of removing opiates from the system. The detoxification process is quick and withdrawal symptoms are nearly completely prevented.
Removing these symptoms through our method of medical opioid detox makes the treatment more effective because patients aren’t vulnerable to relapse due to cravings or other withdrawal symptoms as the detoxification process is occurring. Through completing our detox, patients find freedom from dependence on opiates in only a few days. This is only the first step. After opioid detox, other methods of treatment can be much more successful.
The procedure begins with our medical professionals administering anesthesia to patients within a safe operating room. Sleeping through the opioid detoxification avoids withdrawal symptoms that would be suffered if conscious through the process. Medications aid in the detox and allow the process to be quick. After the few hours of this procedure, an aftercare recovery period follows. This portion of treatment takes a few more days, after which, the patient is free from the chemical dependency on opioids.
Opioid detox is something you don’t want to go through alone. It is a highly uncomfortable experience without the help and support of medical staff. Withdrawal symptoms are hard for most people to manage on their own. Without support, relapse is highly likely.
Besides preventing relapse, medical professionals also ensure patient safety as they go through these withdrawal symptoms that can often be dangerous. The opioid detox procedure at Texas Rapid Detox Center is completely safe with medical professionals monitoring through the entirety of the patient’s stay.
In the past, ‘opiate’ was used to refer to naturally occurring or opium based drugs. ‘Opioid’ was the term for opium’s synthetic counterparts, or drugs that shared similar physical effects while having a different chemical composition. Presently, ‘opioid’ is used to generally refer to a whole range of drugs that share similar physiological effects, whether they’re natural, synthetic, or a combination in terms of their chemical makeup.
