5-Day Rapid Opiate Detox
The Cygnet Health Group used to offer a 5-day accelerated rapid opiate detox, but it is not now available in the United Kingdom. However, we at Detox Plus can provide a comprehensive 10-day and 14-day heroin detox, allowing you to conquer addiction for good.
Detox Plus UK has always been on the cutting edge of drug treatment. We are dedicated to helping people say goodbye to addiction through our various heroin detox programmes. If you wish to be free of dependency to alcohol and heroin and opiate drugs, among other substances, then get in touch with Detox Plus.
We will support you through the entire opiate detox process and can familiarise you with the latest drug detox treatments. For instance, there are many different kinds of rapid detox on offer and some treatments may incorporate an opiate blocker or opioids such as Subutex or methadone.
Your treatment will start with an initial assessment and a thorough medical examination performed by the clinic’s psychiatric addiction specialists. You can be assured they will carry out long-term supervised support during your stay. Our clinics will afford our clients the foremost psycho-educational direction and counselling in the course of your treatment. We can help you get to the root of your addiction. You can be confident that, when your rehab programme is over, we can arrange for you to have a naltrexone implant at a clinic close to the treatment centre.
Phase 1: Days 1–3
Most opioid withdrawal symptoms start within the first 24 hours after a person stops using opiates. Heroin withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable or even painful. It’s important to remember, however, that the discomfort is only temporary. As a result, relapse is very likely to occur during the first two or three days of withdrawal. Symptoms of the initial phase of withdrawal often include:
- Muscle pain
- Stomach problems
- Loss of appetite
- Panic attacks
Phase 2: Days 3–5
After the first phase of withdrawal, most of the intense symptoms will typically have subsided. At this point, people are likely to experience:
- Stomach cramping
- Minor muscle aches

Our protocols have received positive feedback from clients and are renowned for minimising the symptoms of opiate withdrawal. We offer a residential programme for opioids which you can discuss with our qualified addiction treatment counsellors. They will use their vast experience to advise you and recommend the perfect opiate detox to meet your needs.
If you come to our addiction clinics, we can help you deal with a wide range of issues where, apart from carrying out the latest opioid treatment, we also offer heroin rehab to set you on the path to recovery. Patients can also visit a naltrexone clinic to receive a naltrexone implant or oral naltrexone tablet, to assist you in your goal of conquering opioid and heroin addiction once and for all.
Our Admission Process
However, before being admitted to a naltrexone clinic, you must have a clean bill of health and opiate free. You must provide a clean drug before the implant is administered. We can arrange to carry out the test at one of our addiction clinics. If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to call. Our staff counsellors know what it is like to live with addiction. They have been there themselves and can bring that knowledge and empathy to help people going through drug or heroin rehab. If you would like to know more about the various detox treatments available, from a 10 to a 14-day heroin detox, then please get in touch. We are waiting for your call.
The half-life for opiates can range from 1-9 hours, depending on how much you take and which type. For instance, the half-life of morphine is 1.5-6.5 hours, the half-life of codeine is 1-4 hours, and the half-life of hydrocodone is 3.5-9 hours The amount of time that opiates can be detected in your system relies on the type of test.
Both opiates and alcohol depress the activity of the central nervous system, slowing breathing and heart rate. When taken together, the effects of these substances only increase, slowing breathing and heart rate down dangerously and depriving essential parts of the body of oxygen. Without an adequate amount of oxygen, essential organ systems begin to shut down. This can cause brain damage, or worse, death. Ingestion of opiates and alcohol also leads to loss of balance and coordination, increasing the risk of severe falls and rendering normal activities like driving deadly.
Some research implies that regular consumption of heroin can have an impact upon the pancreas which can cause hyperglycaemia; more studies are underway in order to establish the nature of this relationship.

Synthetic cannabinoids, also known as ‘fake weed’ with names like Spice and Mamba are extremely dangerous because?
Synthetic cannabinoids are a type of new psychoactive substance, developed to have similar effects to the psychoactive substances found within cannabis. Sold under a number of street names including Spice and Mamba, synthetic cannabinoids have skunk marijuana like qualities but are extremely more potent. There is increasing health concern about the impact of these new substances on the physical and mental health of users. It is much more likely to cause distortions in reality, hallucinations and delirium. Other known side effects of the drug include breathing difficulties, stupor, dehydration, vomiting, severe rashes and loss of control over parts of the body. The long term effects are as yet unknown due to the recent introduction of these substances. The Psychoactive Substances Act 2016 came into force on May 2016 and applies across the UK and bans the sale, supply, and import of psychoactive substances (previously known as “legal highs”) in the UK.
Having an alcohol or drug addiction and another mental health issue at the same time (for instance anxiety or depression) is classified as a co-occurring condition. All co-occurring conditions should be treated, but it is best to?
Research suggests that mental health illnesses can make it more difficult to treat drug or alcohol addiction, and drug or alcohol addiction can make it more difficult to treat other mental health illnesses. The high rate of co-occurrence and the interaction between addiction and other mental health illnesses makes it important to identify and evaluate both conditions and treat them together.

The brain is especially susceptible to damage from alcohol while it is still in the development stage. Until about what age does the brain continue to develop?
Well into your 20’s: around 25. Medical and scientific research has shown that the human brain does not finish developing until around the age of 25. Alcohol and drug use can alter this development, affecting the brains structure and function causing cognitive and learning problems later in life. This risk is enhanced when people begin drinking when young and to excess. Read more here: https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/encyclopedia/content.aspx?ContentTypeID=1&ContentID=3051

Electronic vaping devices like e-cigarettes can help stop teenagers and young adults from smoking real cigarettes.

As an aid to quitting smoking being the main motivation for an adult who vape. Professor John Newton, Health Improvement Director at Public Health England, said: “In contrast to recent media reports in the US, we are not seeing a surge in e-cigarette use among young people in Britain.

Often viewed as a ‘party drug’, ECSTASY (also known as Eckies, MDMA, Mandy, Pills and Sweeties) is extremely popular on campus and most common at raves and concerts. Why can it be a dangerous drug
All of the above. Ecstasy and MDMA type drugs are known to produce a boost of energy and a euphoric high. However, they are also highly addictive and can cause hallucinations, paranoia, anxiety and other mental health problems. Using Ecstasy has been linked to liver, kidney and brain damage. Other side effects can be very severe and include dehydration, increased heart rate and increased body temperature. Users often feel ‘down’ or tired and low for a few days after taking ecstasy. A danger also exists in not knowing what is actually in the pill or powder or how your body will react to it. While only a small number of deaths have been reported due to Ecstasy, the popularity of the drug is high among students. Ecstasy is the second most commonly used drug by students, having been taken by two thirds (67 per cent) of NUS respondents who have used drugs.
