At NDDRC we are open to accepting ideas from patients.
At the Out Patient level our team assesses every patient. Depending upon the needs of each patient which vary from person to person, we decide what is best for each one of them. NOT ALL PATIENTS REQUIRE HOSPITALIZATION.
Those requiring treatment at Outpatient level, patients are subjected to detailed physical screening and proper detox regime is advised to be followed while staying at home.
However, where we find that a patient would do better if hospitalized, we offer both Conventional Detox for Alcohol / Opiates as well as “Painless” Detox services for Opiates.
Conventional Detox for Alcohol and most Opiates requires hospitalization for 3 weeks.
Utmost care is taken that every patient is comfortable. However, as it is, despite best of efforts some patients do experience some painful withdrawals.
UROD (Ultra Rapid or Rapid opiate detox) is conducted in a hospital ICU setting and under general anesthesia in association with the worldclass anaesthesia team at a leading corporate hospital at Mohali. While under anesthesia, the patient is administered medications that accelerate the physical reactions to the rapid withdrawal process which can last from 6 to 8 hours. However, we tend to keep the patient hospitalized for atleast a day after the procedure.
UROD is beneficial for high-end heavy consumption of opiates such as to heroin, smack, opium, methadone or even prescribed narcotic pain killers – Codeine, Morphine, “Percodan”*, “Lortab”*, “Lomotil”* , ‘ Proxyvon’*, (‘Parvonspas’*) or ‘Oxycontin’*.
