I'm Looking for a list of rapid detox facilities using anesthesia

    Hi,

    I am new to this forum, but I am trying to find a list of rapid detox facilities that put you under with anesthesia. I understand i will need follow up treatment and plan on doing that but I am having a hard time finding alot of these rapid detox facilities.

    If anyone knows where I can find a list of them or if people have any experience with specific facilities that they have used, please post and let me know about your experience.

    I found a facility local to me, but it is not performed in a hospital and they also put you under for 4-6 hours which seems like alot.

    I am using about 350 mg of oxys and 60 mg of methadone a day currently. I have been on the methadone about 7 mos.

    I have recently been tapering down 5 mg a week on the methadone as I think it might be best to get as low as possible on the methadone before undergoing this type of procedure. Im not sure if that is really necessary or not either but I figured it cant hurt.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Dear Sofia,
    Sorry no one has responded to your post. Please try to post on the methadone and or pain meds areas here as they get a bit more traffic than this area for whatever reason. I know our daughter looked into rapid detox in the Chicago area and it was pretty easy to find a place. She just googled her city plus rapid detox facility. However it was pretty costly, I don't think her insurance covered it and there was some concern about her health. It seemed to me that this process was pretty hard on your body. Whatever the reason, I think it's a very good idea to taper down as much as you can from methadone and pain meds. Please try posting inone of the other areas and get some advice from some very knowledgeable people. I also think there is a rapid detox area here on ODR. Have you read through it? Come on back and let us know how you are doing.

    Sofia,
    I went through rapid detox over a year ago in southern california at a place called waismann. It was done in a hospital where i stayed for a few days, i was only out for a few hours and woke up not feeling a thing. Afterwards i was taken to a home nearby the hospital where I stayed for 5 days to get use to the transition. the experience was very nice and the staff took care of me. im not quite sure of any other rapid detox facilities, or one near you, but if you are still looking into the process i would check out Waismann.

    I am also srry that not many got back to you. I'm not one that has experience with rapid either. But do agree, get as low as possible with methadone. I just feel it will be too hard a shock on you physically going from that dose. Aftercare is going to be very important..even just 7 mo on meth will end your ability to produce endorphins. If you were on opiates due to pain at beginning I feel a solid plan for pain management will also pay off. I wish you well and congrats on desire.

    Dear Sophia, I hope after all this time you received the help your were asking for. My son and sister went through the Waismann Method , I di so much research and found them to be the best by far. My son had the rapid detox but my sister was not a candidate due to her other medical issues so they did a slower medical detox for her in the hospital. They both stayed for a few days in their after care that was fundamental to the whole process. My friend has friends that went to cheaper ones and did not due so well , quite scary....Anyway they are in a real hospital for at least a few days and then a few more in the after care. I can tell you that if my sister had gone to one of those overnight rapid detox and a hotel room after she wood have been one of the horror stories you hear. Anyway I hope everyone can find a safe treatment where ever it is.

    My son and sister went to the Waismann in California. He did the rapid detox while under sedation , she did the medical detox. Regardless these are really professional people that know what they are doing. Im researching for a friend now and have spoke to different rapid detox and Im back calling them. Michigan people are a joke. My sons friends almost died over there in the hotel puking. Its nuts!! becarefull out there ...

    Even better than that is ibogaine treatment. There are centers in Costa Rica and Mexico. It is safer, has a better success rate, and also provides introspection into the root causes of use as well as other underlying issues on top of helping with depression, overall health, and overcoming fear. If you haven't heard of or considered it, in my opinion it is an optimal choice because it eliminates withdrawal symptoms, post acute withdrawal, as well as addresses underlying issues. It may not be a miracle cure but it is as far as eliminating withdrawals and cravings giving you the opportunity to start fresh. You feel like you've been clean for months of even your whole life after treatment. It's amazing, traditional treatment and detox methods never worked for me but ibogaine did and statistically has a significantly higher rate of success than traditionaltreatment methods, especially if you truly desire to be clean. It is pain free and clears the slate so that you can begin a new life. Personal message me or email me at freeibogaineadvice@gmail.com with any questions or recommendations of legitimate, safe, ethical centers as I have dedicated a great deal of time to researching, visiting, speaking with past clients, and investigating to find out as much accurate, unbiased information as I can and I feel that part of my recovery is helping others find the right treatment for them. I wish everyone the best and look forward to hearing from you.
