RAI Rapid Heroin Detoxification with Naltrexone Induction
Implementation of rapid detoxification with Naltrexone induction has begun with the aim to tighten security, speed up the process and reduce the costs of medical care. The application of this method of detoxification from heroin has started immediately after the clinical researches conducted in some of the best clinics in the USA, UK and Australia. It is an improved technology for detoxifying the cells from heroin under sedation and analgesia while placing a Naltrexone implant at the same time.
Experienced medical doctors believe that it is better to prevent the withdrawal syndrome than to cure it. Thus, all necessary measures to prevent problems related to withdrawal syndrome will be taken before cleansing the body by using opioid antagonists, i.e. Naltrexone implant placement, starts. In order to avoid pain, soothe sleep, stabilize the vegetative nervous system, and prevent the patient from vomiting and diarrhea, the patient is provided with infusions of strong modern medications. The patient does not suffer, but sleeps.
A protective anti-opioid blocker has already been placed under the skin and there is no longer a possibility for consuming drugs. The patient feels much more secure and peaceful, because all the negative things are behind them. The patient feels relaxed and tired, and does not experience a withdrawal syndrome.Rapid detoxification with Naltrexone induction takes 1 day, In some cases, an additional day or two are needed for complete return of strength and activity. Some patients choose to spend this period in a stationary or day hospital under the control of medical staff, while others save time and money and go home immediately.
In any case, the patients take their individual therapy for some time in order to stabilize mood and sleep. Besides that, the patients can start holistic therapy sessions to activate their own endorphins. Some visit a psychologist or psychiatrist to start a new life and find themselves in this complicated world.
The advantages of RAI compared with ultra-rapid opiate detoxification:
- General anesthesia and special recovery are not needed after the application of RAI.
- The whole process takes one day (two nights are spent in hospital) and the patient can go home.
- A Naltrexone-blocker is placed under the skin and there is no internal struggle and subconscious stress.
The disadvantages of RAI method:
- It is not applicable when it comes to detoxification of Methadone, Substitol, Compensan and other synthetic drugs with extended effect. It has shown excellent results with patients who quit heroin, tramadol, lower doses of buprenorphine (Subutex, Suboxone).
It is very important to inform the medical doctor discretely about the exact substances and doses, so that detoxification can go easily and painlessly. It is also important to provide information on possible somatic and mental disorders.
All this makes the rapid detoxification with Naltrexone induction more accessible regarding the price and safety. The patients who do not want general anesthesia, have contraindications to the needle or simply cannot afford that method, choose RAI.
