What Is Rapid Detox?

Rapid detox has become a standard for the accelerated detoxification of patients from opiates ranging from heroin to prescription pain relievers. The rapiddetox process is generally conducted in a hospital setting and under general anesthesia.

Also referred to as 'ultra rapid opiate detox,' it is truly a rapid detox for opiate based substances and addictions such as heroin, vicodin, methadone, or any prescribed narcotic pain killers.

Some of the narcotic opiate-based substances that can be treated through the rapid detoxification process include:

  • Heroin
  • Codene
  • Vicodin
  • Oxycontin ®
  • Methadone
  • Morphine
  • Fentanyl
  • Percocet
  • Lortab
  • Darvocet
  • Dilaudid
  • Norco

The rapid opiate detox process is generally conducted in a hospital setting and under general anesthesia. In fact, the process is most often overseen by certified and qualified anesthesiologists and a nursing staff that specializes in such procedures.

While under anesthesia, the patient is administered medications that accelerate the physical reactions to the rapid withdrawal process which can last from 4 to 6 hours.
