Rapid Opiate Detox FAQs
How Does Rapid Opiate Detox Work?
Rather than an ultra rapid 5 day detox done in a state of anaesthesia, the Rapid Opiate Detox carried out by Detox Plus is done over 10 – 14 days without the need for anaesthetic, and is done in varying states of consciousness.
How Effective Is Rapid Opiate Detox?
95%+ of patients complete Rapid Opiate Detox treatment free of opiates and ready to progress to the next stage of recovery.
Where Is Rapid Opiate Detox Available?
Rapid Opiate Detox is available at both the Detox Plus Scotland and Newmarket locations.
Do I Have To Redo Treatment At Any Point?
Not normally. Assuming the patient does not relapse following discharge, there is no requirement to redo the detox process. If Naltrexone oral tablets have been chosen as part of aftercare, these normally continue for a minimum of 12 months following discharge.
Will I Definitely Be Asleep During The Detox Process?
Levels of sedation will vary and are monitored and adjusted throughout the detox process, based on breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs. Each sedation dosage is adjusted in this way.
Are There Any Residual Symptoms Experienced Post-Detox?
Patients may feel mild flu-like symptoms for 1-2 weeks following detox but these typically clear within 4 weeks maximum.
