4. Rapid Detoxification – RDD Method®

You could say that there are two ways to do “detox” — rapid, easy, and painless … or slow and painful. Personally, I would choose easy, quick and pain free.

The Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center invented the RDD Method® for rapid drug detoxification, and it is the only way to go. A simple infusion of FDA approved, intravenous medications quickly “cleans” the opiate receptors in your body – that is where “opioids” try to attach to hook you on feeling “high.”

It is quick! After about 60 minutes of light, general anesthesia, you are clean and the worst of the withdrawal is over. Most patients state, it is opiate detox without most of the discomfort.

Immediately after you are cleansed, you start Naltrexone Therapy, so that the opiate drugs do not re-attach to your “clean” receptors. This is why Rapid Drug Detoxification therapy works.

Will it work for you? Before you can start Rapid Drug Detox, the RDD Center medical staff screens your medical history and current health. Then they do a psychological evaluation. Once they confirm that you are a healthy candidate for rapid opiate detox, you can schedule the procedure.

Because the Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center invented the RDD Method® and it is quick and affordable, patients travel from all over the world to the RDD Center. Call them to talk about their cost effective drug detox programs. Yes, you can use your major credit or debit card for payment.

It starts with a phone call. When you call, you speak with a professional nurse or an experienced intake coordinator. The call is toll-free. Click here to contact the RDD Center or call Rapid Drug Detox at 1-888-825-1020 now and take the first step toward a lifetime of freedom from addiction.

The RDD Center makes sure that nurses are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and that the Center’s knowledgeable, licensed medical professionals are always available to answer all of your questions.

Anesthesia Assisted Opiate Detoxification

Anesthesia-Assisted-Opiate-Detoxification-Rapid-Drug-Detox-RDD-MethodOpiate drugs attach to opiate receptors in your body. When they do, they relieve pain and induce feelings of euphoria. Unfortunately, they stick around in your body and as a recent video from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA/NIH) confirms, they can become addicting. In recent years, the National Institute of Health (NIH) reports that over 25,000 people die each year from overdose of tracked drugs because your body quickly becomes dependent on them. That is why you need help from the RDD Center.

Withdrawal “cold turkey” is painful. And it can stretch out for more than 60 days. What if there is a better way?

What if you could check into a modern, fully licensed medical and surgical facility and leave, 3 days later, virtually cured, with no major discomfort?

At the Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center, skilled board certified physicians with many years of experience guide your detoxification (“detox”). After a brief, painless, series of tests, you are admitted to the operating room (O.R.). There, an experienced, board certified anesthesiologist gives you a medication to relax and then administers a light, general anesthesia, while you rest comfortably. While you rest, a team of doctors “scrubs” the opiate receptors in your body using an infusion of intravenous medications. The procedure takes approximately 60 minutes. Once the opiate drugs are removed from your receptors, the worst of the withdrawal is over. And you have slept through it all.

While in the O.R., some patients elect to begin Naltrexone Therapy so that the opiate drugs do not re-attach to your “clean” receptors. While you sleep, Center physicians carefully place a small pellet, about the size of a pill, just under the skin in the lower abdomen. That way, the Naltrexone implant/pellet begins to release its opiate blocking medication right away. It continues to release it slowly, over a 3-month period. During this time, the implant/pellet dissolves and disappears.

Other patients elect a Sustained Release Injectable “IM” Shot. This shot releases Naltrexone medication into your system for one month. Like the implant, it keeps the opiate blocking medication in your system and ensures that opiate drugs don’t re-attach to your “clean” receptors. Like the implant, our medical staff gives your injection in the O.R., right after your detox, for comfort and convenience.

Note: Either the Naltrexone pellet delivery system or the Naltrexone injection is mandatory for Methadone and Suboxone®/Subutex patients. This is because these drugs have a long “half-life,” which means that they hang in your system a long time. Only Methadone and Suboxone®/Subutex patients must choose either the 30-day Naltrexone injection or 90-day pellet delivery system but every patient can choose them for the freedom they provide.

 

Post Procedure Medication

Soon you move to the Recovery Room, where other experienced members of the RDD Center’s medical team monitor your condition. A licensed physician is always within easy reach. The Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center is the only anesthesia detox facility in the country that has 2 Board Certified physicians present for the entire detoxification procedure.

After your detoxification treatment, you remain at the facility in the post recovery area for at least 24 hours. The entire time, you are monitored by a physician, circulating paramedics, and receive one-on-one private duty bedside care for the entire night.

The RDD Method® of opiate anesthesia detox is not for everyone, nor should it be seen as a quick fix for serious drug dependency. Rather, it is a powerful first step toward a lifetime of freedom from addiction. To carefully consider all of your options, call the RDD Wellness Center to speak with an experienced, professional nurse or intake coordinator.

Opiate Treatment Center United States

Opiate-Treatment-Center-United-States-Rapid-Drug-Detox-Center-RDD-MethodWhy would men and women suffering from drug addiction come from all over the world to a small town in the United States to put an end to their drug addiction? It is because the Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center in Michigan developed a “detox” method that works. It is fast, it is effective, and it removes much of the pain and discomfort of withdrawal.

If you or a loved one suffers opiate addiction, you understand the challenge of trying to “go it alone.” Trying to quit often makes you feel worse than the addiction. Yet, you miss the days when you owned your life and you want them back again. You know you need help.

The Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center knows it too and they’ve developed the RDD Method® to ease you through detox.

When you and your family member or caregiver arrives at the Center, you check into an advanced, state-of-the-art surgical facility. The RDD Center benchmarks the quality of the care it delivers to ensure it remains higher than the national standard and the best in the nation. Because of their record for safety and success, patients travel from around the world to the Center—approximately 98% of the Center’s patients come from outside the area.

As your procedure begins, board certified physicians with years of experience guide your detoxification (“detox”). After a brief, painless series of tests, you are admitted to the operating room (O.R.). There, a skilled anesthesiologist gives you a medication to relax and then administers a light, general anesthesia. While you rest comfortably, a team of doctors “scrubs” the opiate receptors in your body, using an infusion of intravenous medications. The procedure takes about one hour.

After the procedure, the medical staff moves you to the Recovery Room, where other knowledgeable members of the RDD Center medical team monitor your condition. A licensed physician is always within easy reach. The Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center is the only anesthesia detox facility in the country that has 2 board certified physicians present for the entire detoxification procedure.

After your detoxification treatment, you remain at the facility in the post recovery area, for at least 24 hours. The entire time, you are monitored by a physician, circulating paramedics, and receive one-on-one private duty bedside care – even through the night.

When the doctors say you are ready to be released, you and your family member or caregiver move to a comfortable adjacent hotel. There, Center physicians and skilled Paramedics continue to monitor your recovery daily, 24 hours a day, until, after three days you are ready to return home, free of addiction.

The RDD Method® of opiate anesthesia detox is not for everyone, nor should it be seen as a quick fix for serious drug dependency. Rather, it is a powerful first step toward a lifetime of freedom from addiction. To carefully consider all of your options, call the RDD Wellness Center to speak with an experienced, professional nurse or intake coordinator.

Drug Addiction Treatment Facility offering RDD Method®

RDD-Method-Rapid-Drug-Detox-Center

Drug Addiction Treatment Facility

The Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center invented the RDD Method® for detoxification from opiates and other addicting drugs. It’s no suprise that patients come to the Center from all over the world for safe, medically-supervised Rapid Drug Detoxification.

Opiates and other addicting drugs attach to opiate receptors in your body. In the short term, they can relieve pain, but if taken for any length of time as a recent video from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA/NIH) confirms, they can become addicting. Over 2 million Americans, and 30 million people worldwide have become addicted. While “cold turkey” withdrawal may be possible, it is difficult and painful, therefore, most who try it unfortunately don’t make it.

The RDD Method® offers a fast and safe medical procedure that eliminates most of the withdrawal symptoms.

When you arrive at the RDD Center, you check into a modern, fully licensed medical facility and receive a medical checkup. During the procedure, an experienced, board certified anesthesiologist gives you a medication to relax and then administers a light, general anesthesia.  While you rest comfortably, the Center’s team of doctors “scrubs” the opiate receptors in your body using an infusion of intravenous medications. The procedure takes approximately an hour.

Following the procedure, recovery begins under direct medical supervision. Most patients refer to it as “detox without the discomfort.”

Is the RDD Method® right for you? The answer starts with a phone call. Call them to talk about their cost-effective drug detox programs. It is affordable and effective. Yes, you can use your major credit or debit card for payment.

When you call, you speak with a professional nurse or an experienced intake coordinator. The call is toll-free. Call Rapid Drug Detox now at 1-888-825-1020 or click here to contact the Rapid Drug Detox Center and take the first step toward a lifetime of freedom from addiction.

The Treatment Gap

Compare RDD MethodAccording to the NIDA (National Institute of Drug Abuse), there continues to be a large problem in the United States (and around the world) for people to receive help to become free of drug dependence. “In 2012, (date of last study) an estimated 23.1 million Americans (8.9 percent) needed treatment for a problem related to drugs but only about 2.5 million people (1 percent) received treatment at a specialty facility.”

As drug addiction is on the rise, this disparity and availability to resources plays a larger role and presents an increased problem in our society. The gap between the number of drug abusers who need assistance and the number who receive treatment is sizeable. Exploring the need, available assistance, and social stigma associated with drug addiction is important to look at to measure improvement and define success.

It is not only finances and lack of resources that cause this gap, the nature of the disease and how our society perceives drug addiction plays a substantial barrier and continues to block many from receiving needed assistance. Drug abusers often do not seek treatment not only because of denial of the issue but because entering drug rehabilitation and treatment may disclose stigmatized, illegal behavior and the risk of adverse family, social, and economic consequences.

Rapid Drug Detox detoxification treatment center understands the barrier to receiving treatment and the fear of being “found out” and is set up to protect personal and confidential information so people can start on a path to recovery. Read more about how RDD values privacy.

Addiction Does Not Discriminate

Addiction Does Not DiscriminateIt is not just the homeless or mentally ill who suffer the trauma of addiction. Many legendary people who seem to “have it all” with money, power, fame and resources were unsuccessful in kicking the drug habit. The difference between celebrities and us is that they make the news when they overdose and die.

A few of the famous celebrities who died due to drug addiction:

  • Whitney Houston
  • Michael Jackson
  • Heath Ledger
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman

Unfortunately, drug overdose and death is not uncommon and on the rise. Most people have been touched by a family member, friend or person in the community who have lost a loved one due to drugs.

“In 2012, an estimated 22.2 million persons aged 12 or older (8.5 percent) were classified with substance dependence or abuse in the past year based on criteria specified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV).” *

“The number of persons with heroin dependence or abuse in 2012 (467,000) was approximately twice the number in 2002 (214,000).” (US Dept of Health and Human Services)*

Drug detox is the best first step to remove the physical addictions of drugs from your body so that you are able to focus on the rest of your recovery with a medical professional. You can learn to live again. Call us 1-888-825-1020 or contact us online, we can help.

Opioid, Heroin Deaths Continue to Climb

Overdose deaths from both prescription opioids and heroin continued to rise in 2011, the most recent year for which data were available, according to the CDC.

While prescription opioid deaths followed a more than decade-long trend and increased about 2% to 16,917, heroin deaths jumped by 44% — from 3,036 in 2010 to 4,397.

Officials with the CDC said the increase in heroin deaths may be partly due to users having less access to prescription opioids and switching to the illicit drug.

Leonard Paulozzi, MD, MPH, a physician and researcher with the CDC in Atlanta, said about 75% of heroin users say they started out by using prescription opioids.

“People might have turned to heroin,” Paulozzi told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel andMedPage Today.

The increasing number of heroin deaths also coincides with anecdotal reports about rising heroin use among people who have had diminished access to prescription opioid painkillers.

Paulozzi said the prescription opioid death number is getting close to stabilizing, but added that it’s “still bad because it hasn’t gone down.”

That number has been on the rise since 1999, when it was 4,030. In 2010, the figure was 16,651.

Paulozzi said doctors need to do a better of job of screening for opioid abusers by checking prescription drug monitoring programs in their states for patients who are doctor shopping, and by using urine screens to detect if they are using illicit drugs.

Lewis Nelson, MD, a toxicologist and emergency medicine specialist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, said the lack of a decline in opioid deaths is especially concerning.

“It’s obvious that the lag in reporting is always a problem, but we’ve been talking about this for a decade,” he said. “The most aggressive actions started in 2011 and 2012, but it’s still amazing to me that we’ve known about this problem for so many years. It should have been better by 2011.”

Andrew Kolodny, MD, a long-time advocate of tighter controls on opioids, said the growing deaths from heroin and opioids is something that could have been predicted 10 years ago.

“I see this as all the same problem, an epidemic of people addicted to opioids,” said Kolodny, chief medical officer of Phoenix House, a national addiction treatment organization. “Treatment has to be easier to access than pills or heroin.”

Neither Nelson nor Kolodny said the increase in heroin deaths was surprising.

“We are seeing more heroin use, and presumably the new users of heroin are people who run out of their ability to get prescription opioids,” Nelson said. “In a way it is an unintended consequence. Perhaps we could have been better prepared for this new trend.”

Deaths involving benzodiazepines, which are commonly used concomitantly with opioids, also continued to rise, showing up in 31% of opioid overdose deaths in 2011, up from 30% in 2010.

The deadly combination of opioids and benzos was the focus of a Journal Sentinel/MedPage Today investigation earlier this year.
