Advanced Medical Detox and Naltrexone Pellet Implant
SoberLife USA is at the forefront of the opiate epidemic. We use cutting edge medical technology to treat opiate addiction.
The first step is getting detoxed from opiates. Millions of Americans are physically addicted to opiates but do not want to go through a week or more of pain and suffering from withdrawal. We have solved this issue by offering our Advanced Medical Detox which takes only 8 hours and happens while the patient sleeps. This is a very technically advanced procedure using all FDA approved medications. The main ingredient is high doses of Naloxone given throughout the procedure. Naloxone is an opiate antagonist and dislodges the opiates that are bound in the brains opiate receptors. This process is repeated many times while simultaneously flushing large amounts of fluids through the body. If this process were done while the patient was awake they would be violently ill, but it has been discovered that while under anesthesia there is no major negative physical reaction. After undergoing the 8-hour procedure our patients wake up free from physical addiction and free from symptoms of withdrawal.
The next step is getting Naltrexone Therapy. This can we done with Vivitrol which is the injectable form of Naltrexone and last up to 30 days or it can be done with a longer lasting Naltrexone Implant. Naltrexone is an extremely important tool in combating addiction. It is an opiate blocker and it parks itself into the opiate receptors of the brain to great reduce or completely eliminate cravings within hours. Another benefit of Naltrexone is that is provides some protection again overdosing. Also, if there is a relapse the user can NOT even get high since their opiate receptors are blocked. When the user cannot get high, there is no incentive and no mental reinforcement to use. Naltrexone has been proven to be a very beneficial tool in combating opiate addiction. We recommend Naltrexone Therapy for at least 12 months.
Our Advanced Medical Detox along with Naltrexone Therapy provides a complete medical solution to the physical side of opiate addiction but there is still the mental side to deal with. We recommend that our clients get involved with an outpatient program where they can address the behavioral, emotional, and psychological aspects of the addiction- free of the physical craving and relapses that conventional treatments could not help.

Traditionally this treatment is taken orally, but patients find it difficult to adhere to the ongoing daily schedule of intake, resulting in minimal success. As a result, fluctuations of the cravings continue to swing (often times with even more severity) making recovery nearly impossible. The compounded Naltrexone implant was designed to curb that problem.
The biodegradable implant is safely inserted just beneath the skin, most commonly in the lower abdominal area, by a board certified trained surgeon. Once implanted, the Naltrexone is slowly released into the body over several months. This simple procedure takes 15 - 20 minutes to complete, and patients often report a decrease in cravings within the first couple of hours.
The road to recovery does not end here. Patients will still need to seek therapy or a 12-step program to assist with the ongoing process of addiction recovery. If needed, Sober Life USA can help with selecting the appropriate counseling or recovery program that’s right for you.
