We just had a patient go through our Advanced Medical Detox program. He is a 24 year old male that was using approximately 2 grams of heroin per day, mixed with meth, intravenously. He had the 8 hour detox procedure with Vivitrol at the same time. He woke up tired but otherwise feeling good. After 2 days at our recovery home we transferred him to a local Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) where he plans to stay for 30 days. He also plans to come back in 3 weeks for a 6 month Naltrexone implant.
Two days after the procedure he told us, “the procedure was amazing… I can’t believe I had no withdrawal. I detoxed without being sick! Amazing!”
