Rapid opiate detox Vs. Traditional opiod detoxification

Narcotic dependence is a medical disorder where patient becomes physically dependent on narcotic drugs such as opiates, heroin, painkillers etc. It can happen rapidly, as fast as two weeks since the first use. When opioid tolerance is developed, besides rapid opiate detox, there are a number of methods to detoxify patients body from narcotics.

More traditional methods of drug detoxification are:

  • Abrupt withdrawal – which is excruciatingly painful and even dangerous detoxification proces.         Abrupt withdrawal (so called Coldturkey method) implies that opiates are eliminated from the body without any medical care. It is risky and unreliable.
  • Rapid opioid detox

  • Opioid replacement – is prolonged detoxification programme with a high rate od relapse. It is comprised of tapering off with pharmacological agents  that ease the symptoms of withdrawal. There are two major weaknesses to this process: Length of detoxification (recovery becomes exhausting), and the use of opiates (patient is tempted to proceed with addiction using a substitute drug)

Unlike other traditional ways of drug detoxification, UROD is a modern and impressively effective method. It is becoming popular around the world beacause of it’s low relapse rate, comparing with other detoxification practices.

Ultra rapid opiate detox incorporates the best of these two different procedures: quikness of abrupt withdrawal method and relative painlessness of opioid replacement method. UROD is formulated to speed up the cleaning process and, at the same time, restrain withdrawal symptoms to minimize distress. 

Under a general anasthesia, a patient is given an opiate antagonist  to cleanse the opioid receptors. Opioid antagonist used in opioid dependence menagement which succesfuly blocks the effects opioids through competitive receptor inhibition. Opioid antagonist cannot be abused since it has no opioid agonist effect. Most of withdrawal symptoms happen when patient is under anasthesia, hence no discomfort, distress or pain can disturb the procedure. When the patient comes out of anasthesia, physical withdrawal from opiates is over for the most part.

Without any medical help, persons in a state of withdrawal enduresevere body pain, insomnia, sweating, muscle twitches, diarrhea, nausea and many other distressing symptoms. Body suffers from elevated blood pressure, temperature, respiratory rate, and these are the reasons that detoxification becomes intolerable. Rapid opiate detox under anesthesia to endure the worst withdrawal symptoms  in a non conscious state. Drug addicts are afraid of these symptoms, so common in traditional drug detoxification processes, and are more likely to decide on overcoming the addiction if it is possible to do it without pain and all other, above mentioned, difficulties.

What is the difference between rapid and ultra rapid opiate detoxification (UROD)

The difference is in duration of a cleansing process.  Ultra rapid opiate detoxification UROD is usually a single procedure. Mostly it suits moderately addicted patients for whom the only procedure  is enough to cleanse the opioid receptors. It lasts from 6 to 8 hours. The patient doesn’t experience any symptoms of withdrawal after wake up. One more  day after detox  is needed  to regain physical strength  and clear up the consciousness after anesthesia. Rapid Opiate Detoxification is supposed to have  2 or even 3 detox procedures. It takes 4-6 days. Usually it suits heavily addicted patients when the single detox procedure is not enough to complete the cleansing.

Detoxification from any drug is not a pleasant experience.  To pass opiate withdrawal without medical intervention can be very painful.  In case of a hard core addiction the unassisted  detoxification  may result in damage of  the central nervous system, cause seizures, and in some cases even lead to cardiopulmonary failure and other life threatening situations.
