5 Day Rapid Opiate Detox

5 Day Rapid Opiate Detox

For those of you who need immediate intervention and quick results, the 5 Day Rapid Opiate Detox is a worthwhile treatment programme.

The 5 Day Rapid Opiate Detox is an accelerated detox programme that aims to resolve the physical side of your addiction and get you clean in 5 days.

For this detox programme, you will stay in residential clinic accommodation to provide safety and security during your detox. This also makes sure we can deliver the care you need to get through your withdrawal symptoms.

For those with complex issues, the programme can be extended to 7 or 10 days. These longer programmes are a little more comprehensive, however, the purpose of the 5 Day Rapid Opiate Detox is to deliver intervention fast.

The best opiate detox for you depends on your circumstances and health. Please call us on [number] for personalised advice about your addiction.

Phase 1: Days 1-3

Phase 1 of the 5 Day Rapid Opiate Detox takes place over days 1-3.

The worst withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal happen within the first 48-hours of abstinence. During this period, you will experience intense physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms that may be painful.

Common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Sweating
  • Shakes
  • Tremors
  • Muscle aches
  • Muscle cramps
  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Insomnia
  • Skin crawling
  • Loss of appetite
  • Stomach problems

To ease your withdrawal symptoms, this stage of your detox will be managed with medication. The most common medication is Dexmedetomidine. Dexmedetomidine is a sedative-analgesic that reduces withdrawal symptoms very well. It is useful for controlling both psychomimetic and physical withdrawal symptoms.

Other medications may also be used, such as stomach sickness medication. The most important thing to know is that your detox will be closely supervised by our nurses. You will be looked after and made as comfortable as possible.

Phase 2: Days 3-5

Phase 2 of the 5 Day Rapid Opiate Detox takes place over days 3-5.

After 48-hours have passed, your withdrawal symptoms will ease. You will start to feel better. However, you will still have an intense craving for opiates. You will probably obsess over them, and you may daydream about using them.

The most common withdrawal symptoms during phase 2 are:

  • Fatigue
  • Shivers
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle aches

These are natural reactions to abstinence. By abstaining from opiates, you are starving your brain from the substance it desperately wants.

Over time, your brain depends on opiates less and less. This is how detoxing works: it takes away the opiate so your body can cleanse and reset itself.

Will A Rapid Opiate Detox Work For Me?

This is a question of your individual circumstances, your age, your medical history and the extent and type of your addiction.

Rapid detoxing is an intensive programme that aims to get you clean and free from the immediate shackles of addiction. It is particularly effective for early-stage addiction and opiate dependence – opiate dependence can be defined as needing to use opiates to satisfy a craving or urge you have developed recently.

Something to know is that rapid detoxing is nearly always an inpatient programme, which means you will have to be admitted into the care of one of our rehab centres. This is necessary so we can look after you and provide the support you need.

With our help, you can overcome your opiate dependence and stop using opiates in a relatively short space of time. Within 5, 7 or 10 days, we can help you kick the habit, so you can go on to lead a normal opiate-free life.

Absolutely yes, so many people are not even aware they have a mental health problem and many people don’t make the connection in children and mental health. The alcohol can become a ‘solution’ for a persons mental health. At the start it will seem as if the alcohol is quieting the mind, but in time as the addiction progresses it will only add to any mental health problems the person has. It is also difficult to diagnose a person with mental health while under the influence of alcohol.

As well as being directly related to many serious diseases, drinking large amounts of alcohol can also lead to poor sexual performance, and it can harm an unborn baby. If you have an alcohol related problem, there are many ways in which you can get help to reduce your drinking, and there are also many services that you can use that will help you stop altogether. Definition The problems associated with alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, are wide ranging, and can be physical, psychological, and social.

There is no definitive cure for addiction. However, rehab can provide patients with the skills needed to successfully manage their addiction and remain sober. Recovery from addiction is never over and patients will need to work on their ability to avoid relapse for the rest of their lives. A high quality addiction rehab programme sets patients up for this process.

Most people can enjoy a casual night out with friends, have one or two drinks and then stop, and they might not drink again for several days. They enjoy a drink, but they don’t NEED it.
