Our Rapid Oxycodone Detox Procedure
Whether you became dependent to Oxycodone by a doctor’s prescription after an accident or surgery, or you’re just stuck in the habit of taking Oxy, our Rapid Oxycodone detox procedure has been perfected by our Board-Certified Anesthesiologist & Addiction Medicine Physician, Dr. Julia Aharonov. The number of patients who have gone through our treatment and who have gotten their lives back, is truly humbling and inspiring. Once you’ve made up your mind you want to end your dependency on oxycodone and you’re ready to get your life back — We can help you. You’ll safely detox inside of our private opiate detox center. The worst of the withdrawals will be over in four days. Four days! You will sleep through the worst parts of the withdrawals while the doctor administers medication that reverse the opiates from the receptors.
Our Rapid Oxycodone Detox Procedure is as follows:
- (Day 1) — Patient completes all intake paperwork, lab work, physical exam, social worker, and case planning meeting with the doctor. Next, the patient is taken to their private room which includes a private bathroom, flat screen TV, and WIFI. All meals are included. During this time the patient keeps their cell phone. Smoking and vaping are not allowed in or around the facility. We suggest patients wear a nicotine patch. We do not want the patient in withdrawals, so they are encouraged to continue their medication until midnight.
- (Day 2) — Patient is taken to the ICU where they will remain for approximately 24 hours after the sedation detox procedure. During the sedation the doctor uses medication that reverse the opiates off the receptors. The patient remains under the care of Award Winning, Board-Certified Anesthesiologist, Dr. Julia Aharonov, and receives IV Sedation in a private treatment room to sleep through their withdrawals while closely monitored.
- After the opiate reversal, the patient receives an FDA Approved Vivitrol® injection. Vivitrol® is a brand name for Naltrexone, which blocks the effects of opioids and eliminates cravings. It should be noted that Vivitrol® eliminates the opiate cravings for 28 days, is not addictive and can be given immediately after this procedure—avoiding the usual 7-14 day period if a patient were to detox themselves.
- (Day 3) — Patient comes back to their private room (with 24-hour medical care), to rest and recuperate for the day. If they experience any post-acute withdrawals, they are given transitionary, non-addictive medications. The patient also receives those same medications to take home. If approved by the doctor (at an additional cost), patients can request to have an IV Ketamine infusion.
- (Day 4) — After meeting with Dr. Aharonov, patients are free to go home and eligible for our detox-related aftercare program. With Advanced Rapid Detox, you truly have the best care as you restart your life.
What is Oxycodone?
You may know oxycodone as OxyContin® or Percocet®. It is an opioid that is commonly used in many prescription painkillers. If taken for a prolonged period of time people who use oxycodone to manage their pain develop a tolerance to the opioid, meaning that it becomes much less effective than when it was first prescribed.
- Oxycodone is an opiate agonist that is the active ingredient in OxyContin®, Percocet®, and Percodan®
- OxyContin® is an extended-release concentrated version of oxycodone, lasting as long as twelve (12) hours.
Overcoming a dependence on oxycodone can be extremely difficult because of acute withdrawal symptoms. Plenty of people have tried to wean themselves off oxycodone but have failed because of the unpleasant symptoms they have had to face. Many people continue to use oxycodone even though their original needs for the opioid (i.e. pain relief) have been dealt with – this is because they cannot face going through withdrawal.
At Advanced Rapid Detox, we understand the intricacies of oxycodone dependency and the withdrawal process. We are here to give you the very best help in ridding your life of your need for oxycodone.
Understanding Your Dependency
Oxycodone is an opioid-based medicine that is prescribed under such brand names as Percocet® and OxyContin®. It is a moderately potent opioid that’s used for pain relief, and is around one-and-a-half times as powerful as morphine.
Like many painkilling opioids, oxycodone is derived from thebaine, which is an alkaloid that can be found in the Persian poppy. Sometimes oxycodone is taken in tandem with naloxone, as naloxone is designed to block the addictive properties of oxycodone, including sensations of euphoria and restfulness.
As well as dealing with a patient’s pain, oxycodone can also cause constipation, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, irritability, sweating, dry mouth and an excessive desire for sleep. Overdosing on oxycodone is very dangerous, as it can slow down a person’s breathing and their heart rate. In extreme cases of oxycodone overdoses can cause the respiratory system to fail and severe heart problems that can be fatal.
If used for extended periods, oxycodone can cause anxiety and depression. It can also cause moodiness, a loss of appetite, continual fatigue and drowsiness and a loss of sex drive.
Tell Me About Oxycodone Dependency
As well as blocking pain, oxycodone causes the human brain to experience high levels of euphoria. Users also report desirable sensations of ‘being at peace’, calmness and tranquility. Sleep is also typically more restful, but some people report needing increased amounts of sleep, and a feeling of fatigue if they are unable to get enough.
Once the source of pain that originally necessitated the need for oxycodone has been taken care of, people attempt to curtail their use of the opioid. This can be difficult to achieve for two reasons. First, people have become dependent upon the feelings of euphoria they experience when taking oxycodone and miss those feelings once they have stopped using the opioid. Secondly – and more commonly an issue when dealing with oxycodone dependency – are the severe withdrawal symptoms.
Withdrawal symptoms begin in as little time as a few hours after the previous dose of oxycodone. These symptoms typically build up over a subsequent period of two to four days until they become incredibly intense. Typical symptoms include the following:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Runny nose/teary eyes
- Shaking, muscle aches and spasms
- Fatigue and restlessness
- Depression and anxiety
- Increased heart rate
People tend to experience physical side effects for the first three or four days of the withdrawal process, and the psychological effect thereafter. Relapse is common, as the easiest way to deal with oxycodone withdrawal is to return to using the opioid. This in turn generates a cycle of dependency as people continually go through the quit and relapse stages, creating further depression as people feel bad about themselves for their failure to quit.
People also tend to ‘go at it alone’ or with the welcome but inexperienced help of their friends and family when they attempt to break the dependency cycle. Success is much more likely if proper professional medical help is obtained instead.
