Seattle Opiate Detox Treatment
Medical Detoxification for Oxycontin & Opiate Addiction
The need for medical detox due to OxyContin or opiate addictions will be reviewed by our physicians and determined on a case-by-case basis. While some may be fine without any need for detox, others may require this process prior to beginning the regular rehabilitation program. Keep in mind, we generally cannot guarantee a patient will be a sober admission unless they are 10 days clean from all drugs and alcohol.
OxyContin and prescription opiate medical detoxification includes monitoring and administering medical treatment to patients experiencing withdrawal symptoms. The length of the detoxification period varies for each individual, but for OxyContin addiction, it often takes three to five days.
Symptoms of OxyContin withdrawal can include racing pulse or heart rate, fatigue, hot and/or cold sweats, anxiety, yawning, depression, insomnia, nausea/vomiting, muscle and joint aches and pains, often times experienced as flu-like symptoms and diarrhea.
