Rapid Drug Detox can help detox you from LAAM, also known as ORLMM.
LAAM (Levo-Alpha Acetyl Methadol), similar to Methadone is often used as a replacement therapy for illegal heroin or other opiate, use. It is only available through government-approved drug treatment clinics and is administered three times a week.
While LAAM is blocking the effects of other opiates it does not produce a subjective high, rather it produces an even, stable effect.

LAAM Addiction Effects
Symptoms of addiction and overdose can include: cold, clammy skin, confusion, convulsions (seizures), dizziness, drowsiness, low blood pressure, nervousness or restlessness, pinpoint pupils of eyes, slow heartbeat, slow or troubled breathing, weakness and depression.
LAAM Withdrawal Symptoms
The withdrawal symptoms associated with LAAM addiction are usually experienced shortly before the time of the next scheduled dose of the drug, sometimes within as early as a few hours (usually between 6-12 hours) after the last administration. Symptoms include: body aches, diarrhea, fast heartbeat, gooseflesh, increased sweating, loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, nervousness, anxiety, restlessness, or irritability, runny nose, shivering or trembling, sneezing, stomach cramps, trouble sleeping, unexplained fever, unusually large pupils of eyes, weakness, yawning, dehydration, and thoughts of suicide.
Rapid Anesthesia LAAM Detox
The RDD Method® for LAAM detoxification under anesthesia is a medical procedure that eliminates most of the withdrawal symptoms. During the procedure the patient is given medication to relax and then put under light, general anesthesia for approximately 60 minutes. Following the procedure, recovery begins under direct medical supervision.
The patient’s vital signs and overall physical and mental reactions to these medications are closely monitored during the detox procedure. In the days that follow, the patient often sleeps more than usual. Administered by professionals as part of a long-term drug-addiction recovery strategy, The RDD Method® is significantly more effective than other courses of LAAM addiction treatment.

If you are using opiate drugs to control pain and feel you are using more and more to get the same pain relief, you may be suffering from a common condition caused from opiate drug use; read about this condition called Hyperalgesia. Also, read about hormones and how the chronic use of opiate drugs can decrease the body’s ability to produce the proper amount of testosterone and estrogen.
We never use other replacement addicting opiates, often prescribed by physicians and detox centers, such as Suboxone®/Subutex (Buprenorphine) or injectable Buprenorphine. These schedule III controlled opiate drugs are routinely and widely used and approved by the FDA for opiate addiction maintenance, like Methadone. Many patients find themselves in the same situation as they were before drug treatment from a doctor or a drug rehabilitation center. Some in-patient rehab centers also use schedule II controlled liquid Hydrocodone and Dilaudid “cocktails”. Patients soon realize these replacement drugs cause severe withdrawal once they are discharged from these programs. This causes the patient to seek opiates for relief from the severe discomfort of a Buprenorphine withdrawal. The use of these drugs for treatment of opiate addiction is merely switching one opiate drug for another setting the patient up for failure. This does not solve the patient’s drug addiction problem. As use of these drugs become more common, we are seeing a steady increase of requests for an anesthesia detox from patients addicted to Suboxone®/Subutex (Buprenorphine). With RDD’s Naltrexone Therapy used as a pellet/implant, injectable “IM” shot or the oral pill form, the patient stays clean and cravings are eliminated.
