Detoxing from drugs and alcohol alone is tough. Support is available for those seeking a simpler way of life.

Cleveland is the county seat of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in Ohio. The city is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 60 miles west of the Pennsylvania border. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location on the lake shore, as well as being connected to numerous canals and railroad lines. Cleveland’s economy has diversified sectors that include manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and biomedical. Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

San Antonio Drug Detox Presents Video Explaining Services Offered for Drug Abuse Support


SAN ANTONIO, TX (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

Medical Drug Detox Center in San Antonio is announcing that a new video regarding its services and plans is now available for San Antonio and surrounding cities. Those cities include Live Oak, Balcones Heights, Castroville, New Braunfels, and San Marcos.

Drug detoxification is used to reduce or relieve withdrawal symptoms while helping the addicted individual adjust to living without drug use; drug detoxification is not meant to treat addiction but rather an early step in long-term treatment. Detoxification may be achieved drug free or may use medications as an aspect of treatment. Often drug detoxification and treatment will occur in a community program that lasts several months and takes place in a residential rather than medical center.

Substance abuse problems can turn ordinary people’s lives upside down. Alcoholism and drug addiction is a horrid disease that affects the body, mind and spirit. Other drugs like oxycontin, Klonopin, opiates, and cocaine – when taken beyond “normal” levels – destruct whatever kind of lives people have from an emotional and physical standpoint.

Drug addicts and alcoholics who are deep into their addiction will go to any lengths and neighborhoods for their “fix.” These drugs also include heroin. It isn’t surprising to find out how many streets, roads and miles they have walked or driven simply to feel better and medicate themselves. Making sure that these adults and adolescents understand there are different options and choices for life is important. Sometimes, they are ultimately life-saving ways.

There are prescription drugs, when taken under proper medical supervision, to help the detox process flow better for people. Some of these include Ativan, Buprenorphine, Librium, Methadone, Suboxone, Valium, and Naltrexone. Again, it is suggested to receive help and it is available at Medical Drug Detox Center.

When people attempt to detox from drugs and alcohol on their own, the results are not always successful. Getting the proper help and support for gaining and maintaining long-term sobriety can turn lives around. People discover that recovery is an easier, softer way after going through detox.

Also, there seems to be a misunderstanding in some circles that reaching out for help is a sign of weakness. On the contrary, it is not. This truly becomes a source of strength and shows that an individual is ready to leave his or her substance abuse-filled life in the past.

Rapid Opiate Detox in Only 8 Hours from Las Vegas Rapid Detox


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 20, 2014

Opiate detox can be an extremely painful thing to go thorugh. However, with Las Vegas Rapid Detox’s groundbreaking 8 hour rapid detox procedure, patients can detox from opiates in only eight hours without suffering any signs of withdrawal. Las Vegas Rapid Detox’s procedure has been proven safe and in Las Vegas Rapid Detox is please to announce that they have reached the milestone of successfully performing 500 rapid opiate detox procedures without any complications.

Since July 2007, Dr. Thomas Yee, MD, an anesthesiologist with 20 years of clinical experience, certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology, has treated 500 patients from all over the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. Performed in certified operating rooms at accredited hospital or surgery centers, the advanced rapid opiate detox procedure (AROD), developed by Dr. Yee, has been used on patients addicted to various opiates including heroin, oxycontin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, dilaudid, vicodin, tramadol, etc.

“The best way to describe what we do is imagining 2 weeks worth of cold-turkey quitting being compressed into 8 hours while the patient sleeps under anesthesia,” Dr. Yee stated. “We know the physical withdrawal in quitting opiates is horrible, but the discomfort is finite; it does not last forever. The trick is to hurry up the withdrawal so the patient can get over it while sleeping.”

After the 8-hour treatment, the patients would receive 48 hours of one-on-one nursing care for recovery. After returning home, patients are required to have weekly counseling for 6 months to treat the psychological aspect of addiction. In order to prevent relapse, patients are also required to receive FDA-approved monthly injection of a long-acting opiate-blocker, Vivitrol, from nearby providers.

Recent Reports State That 19 Million Americans Abuse Prescription Drugs; FDA and Novus Medical Detox Agree That Education is Needed


New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) August 11, 2014

Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that 46 Americans die every day from prescription drug overdose, which adds up to about 17,000 deaths annually. The reports also state that poisonings by drug overdose have tripled over the past 30 years. (1) Novus Medical Detox, one of the only Florida-based detox centers serving high-dosage drug abuse patients, states that the reason behind the high number of fatalities lies in inadequate drug education.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) carries this same belief, and has responded by implementing a new drug education program. The program seeks to educate doctors who prescribe these highly-addictive painkillers, as well as the patients who are taking them. The program’s mission is “to teach doctors about proper opiate prescribing for pain patients to minimize the risks of diversion and addiction.” (4)

The United Nation’s World Drug Report 2014 stated that in 2012, 6.1% (19 million) of Americans abused prescription opioids, including morphine, codeine, OxyContin and Vicodin. This figure categorizes the United States as a country that abuses prescription drugs more than any other country in the world. (2) In an effort to lower the number of people harmed by these drugs, Novus warns Americans to exercise caution when receiving a new prescription from a physician, and to ask questions related to its side effects.

“Intentionally or not, Americans may be underestimating the highly addictive nature of drugs such as opioids,” stated Novus Executive Director Kent Runyon. “It may start as nothing more than filling a prescription for legitimate pain, but overdose may result when a patient seeks to elicit a stronger high from these drugs.”

Novus recommends that the following steps be taken when being prescribed a new medication (3):

●    Be sure that the prescription comes from a trusted physician;

●    Only use the medication as prescribed;

●    Ask the physician about the medicine and its effects;

●    Conduct your own research about the drug’s effects; and

●    Be prepared—ask your doctor what to do if one becomes addicted.

All of these tips are important to heed before a patient starts to take a medication, because addiction may begin with the patient being unaware of a medication’s initial effects. This patient may begin to take pills more liberally than prescribed, and the dangers of addiction do not lie far behind.

Runyon maintains that comprehensive drug education, starting in grade school and continuing throughout adult life to physician visits, can help to significantly reduce the number of Americans addicted to such drugs.

While new preventative measures are being taken, Novus recommends looking out for the following symptoms or behaviors (but not limited to), if someone suspects that a loved one is abusing pain reliever prescription drugs (5):

●    Nausea, drowsiness;

●    Mood swings and anxiety;

●    Slowed reactions, movement and breathing;

●    Jittery or secretive; and/or

●    Neglect of work/school responsibilities.

Runyon advises those who are dependent upon any abusive substance(s) to seek out safe, medically-supervised detox programs, and to use those with integrated medicine that allows the detox process to be as comfortable as possible.

Harbor Village Detox Extends Treatment for Drug & Alcohol Abuse to Mass. in Response to Treatment Centers Denying Victims of Abuse Insurance Coverage

USA (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

Drug and alcohol addiction treatment is a costly enterprise for a nationwide epidemic, that often bars essential medical treatment from victims suffering of drug and alcohol substance abuse disorders. According to Wbur on March 11th, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in the state of Mass. are unable to get the drug and alcohol addiction treatment they need because insurance providers will not cover addiction treatment. Some people were allegedly released because of insufficient insurance coverage. Harbor Village Detox is an inpatient medical detox center committed to the long term recovery of its patients. The addiction treatment center is governed on the ideal that all people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction should have uncompromised access to medical treatment, that will save lives from fatal overdose.

Harbor Village Detox is extending their complete services to the state of Mass. to encourage victims of drug and alcohol addiction with the addiction treatment they need to save their lives from continued abuse.

Flight accommodations are available in certain circumstances, and their dedicated driver will pick up patients from the airport directly.

A medical associate of Harbor Village Detox comments, “It’s so important for drug addicts to get treatment as soon as they seek it, undaunted. It’s such a difficult process to get addicts to admit they have a problem and seek treatment in the first place.

Detox from Opiates in 8 Hours at Las Vegas Rapid Detox
