Opiate addiction program is a necessary process in order to clean a body from harmful drugs. Detoxification program from opioids lasts at least 7 days. This program is for patients that use less than 1 gram of heroin, 40-50 mg of methadone. Or, 400-500 mg of Substitol or 100 mg of Oxycontin. Rapid opioid detoxification for 7 days includes 3 anesthesia assisted procedures. The goal of detoxification program is to clean the organism and control the withdrawal syndrome. Also, this program will help patient overcomme physical crisis and pain caused by the interrupted consumption of opiates.
1. Opiate addiction program – Diagnostics
The first and most important phase of treatment. The essence of diagnosis is to assess the physical and mental condition of the patient.
In order to assess the physical condition of the patient, the standard diagnosis examination includes:
- urine test
- tests for hepatitis B and C, as well as for HIV infection
- general analysis of blood
- biochemical blood test
- examination by the internist doctor
In case of serious aberrations in laboratory tests and/or in case of the presence of the risk factors, we additionally invite specialists from other medical centers. They will take part in diagnostics and treatment progress. On the basis of our clinic or by the contract with our partner clinics we provide following things. MRI, EEG, ultrasound, x-rays, endoscopy research. But, we also seek for complementary consultation of cardiologists, neurologists, endocrinologists and other specialists.
These complex additional tests are not included in the price of this treatment program. We will charge them additionaly. We also provide some specific laboratory tests for drug detection in blood, urine and other bodily fluids.
After completing the diagnostic, results are discussed in the team of doctors where they determine strategy and plan of treatment.
Opiate addiction program includes non-painful detoxification. Depending on the results of diagnostics, we choose an appropriate method of detoxification or a complex set for each patient. This will obtain the best results for each specific case. The complex method includes UROD (ultra rapid opioid detoxification from opiates), Neurojet (N.E.T) therapy, pharmacotherapy, special infusions of vitamins, hepatoprotectors. It is extremely important that detoxification is fast. The patient should feel no pain. The sleeping habits and appetite of the patient should return to normal. The patients mood should become stable, without any anxiety or depression.
Neuro jet therapy is a method that affects the neurons responsible for the secretion of endorphins in the brain. This happens when Neuro jet device releases special impulses. Our natural protection from shock, pain and stress is based on the natural opiates produced by our neurons. When a person consumes drugs, the secretion of natural opiates is practically interrupted. Neuro jet is a small electronic device that normalizes the levels of dopamine and endorphin in the brain.
Neuro jet stimulation is painless. The patient feels only a slight tickling and vibration. Special computer controlls the frequency and intensity of the impulses. After 15-20 minutes, abstinence symptoms disappear. Or Neuro jet device reduces their intensity by 70-80%.
Ultra rapid opioid detoxification is a modern and extremely efficient method. This method accelerates the cleansing process of the organism. But, at the same time reduces the intensity and duration of unpleasant crisis symptoms. Patient receives this therapy when the diagnosis establishes that there are no contraindications for this type of detoxification. During the ultrafast detoxifying the patient is under anesthesia for 6-8 hours a day. The essence of ultra rapid detoxification is that patients should overcome most of the crisis symptoms. That happens when they sleep and they will feel no pain. When they wake up, the worst part of the crisis is over. Even if some minimal symptoms remain after waking up, their intensity is at its minimum. During the process of detoxification, the patient will undergo this procedure 2 or 3 times.
One of the elements of detoxification. Depending on the results of the diagnosis, during the detoxification process there will be used a combination of medications, which eliminates the basic symptoms of abstinence, as well preparations which are part of pain management standards and provide good protection from pain. Psychostabilizers, hypnotics and antidepressants are used in case of irritability, dysphoria, depression, anxiety and insomnia.Due to frequent nutrition performances, insufficient or excessive appetite, the therapy includes ferments that facilitate the ability to assimilate food, amino acids and vitamins. The treatment also includes a lung-cleaning therapy in order to eliminate the consequences of narcotic inhalation (if indicated), special infusions with neuro-metabolic substances, nootropics for the enhancement of exchange processes in the brain and hepatic protectors for the regeneration of the leaver.
