The rapid opiate detox process is generally conducted in a hospital setting and under general anesthesia. Also referred to as ‘ultra rapid opiate detox,’ rapid detox for opiate based substances and addictions such as heroin, raw opium, methadone, or any prescribed narcotic pain killers.

Other narcotic opiate-based substances that can be treated through the rapid detoxification process include:

  • Codeine

  • Oxycontin

The rapid opiate detox process is generally conducted in a hospital setting and under general anesthesia. In fact, the process is most often overseen by certified and qualified anesthesiologists and a nursing staff that specializes in such procedures.

While under anesthesia, the patient is administered medications that accelerate the physical reactions to the rapid withdrawal process which can last from 4 to 6 hours.
