Heroin, Oxycontin and Methadone are the most widely abused opiate drugs. Other opiates, such as Percocet, Vicodin, Dilaudid, and Demerol are also highly addictive. But regardless of the specific opiate addiction, The Coleman Institute can help with the revolutionary Accelerated Detoxification Technique (ADT).
Our ADT procedure is designed to remove all of the narcotics that are attached to the patient's brain receptors in the most comfortable, safe and speedy process possible. When people come in to detox they have a certain amount of narcotics that are attached to the receptors in their brain. Any detox procedure needs to assist the patient getting rid of all of those drugs so that the patient and the patient's brain are completely drug-free. At that point, the detox process is completed. If patients detoxify on their own without any assistance, the drugs wash out of their brain in around five to ten days. This is extremely painful and most patients are unable to tolerate it on their own.
At The Coleman Institute, we have found a much easier process, called the Accelerated Detoxification Technique.
In Accelerated Detoxification, we meet with the patient for the initial assessment and ask that they be in some mild withdrawal. In this way, by the time we meet with them they've already started the detoxification and they are ready to receive some of the medicines we use for the detoxification. We then give our patients a combination of drugs, including some mild opiates and some strong sedatives. Patients usually become much more comfortable and they can be discharged home.
On the second day, we continue their sedatives and then actually give them some medicines to speed up the detoxification and prepare the brain for being drug free. On the final day of the detox, the patient fasts overnight and takes a dose of oral Valium before arriving in the office. The oral Valium lasts long enough to provide good sedation throughout the whole detoxification procedure. We usually insert an IV so we can provide extra sedation throughout the course of the day, if this is needed. By the end of the day, the patient has received full doses of antagonists, and we can insert the small Naltrexone implant under the skin, knowing that the patient is fully detoxified and will not get any extra withdrawal symptoms once they leave the office. The sustained, time-release nature of Naltrexone allows us to keep all opiates from the brain receptors for at least six to twelve weeks, giving patients the best possible chance for a lasting recovery.
