Withdrawal Rehabilitation & Opioid Detox
Opioid Detox and Medication Program
To treat opioid addiction, there are ways of doing so without creating abstinence syndrome or leading to failed attempts. Oftentimes, patients attempt to titter down on the opioid medications, but due to the overwhelming activity against neurotransmitters by the usual most common prescribed pain medications, there is an overwhelming response by the sympathetic and parasympathetic system triggering an array of symptoms. In turn, this may be confused with the underlying disease. As a result, we advise our patients of other methods for tittering down, and suppress the effect by the use of more selective drugs for a time being, allowing the neuro-receptors to reset while being clear of over stimulation. The most common opioid detox treatments include methadone, naltrexone, and buprenorphine (Suboxone). Other methods are available, both allopathic and alternative, depending on the case. In our experience, many of our patients do not need to continue using pain medications after they have received effective therapies against Lyme.
