What medication will be used for drug withdrawal
At Serenity Health we believe that a simple approach to detox is the best. This also helps avoiding cross addiction issues.
If you have been using Methadone before you admission we will slowly reduce this over a set time period depending on your current usage. The same rule applies if you were using Buprenorphine or Benzodiazepines.
If you are using Heroin or other Opiates before admission we would use a medication called Lofexidine and again this would be reduced over a set time period dependent on your current usage.
Further to the above medication we believe it is vital that your detox drug is as comfortable as possible and do offer other medications based on your withdrawal symptoms. These medications will reduce feelings of anxiety or pain without over sedating you.
The Serenity Health has been involved with treating drug addiction for many years and worked with many different methods of detox drug. We feel the process we now offer is simple, pain free and as easy as possible.
