Outpatient opioid detox is both desirable and feasible!! More so, you may be able to work and, more certainly, avoid costly inpatient insurance copayments and get to your first Vivitrol injection in 7-9 days. Then, in a patient-family-centered way a physiologically & educationally based rehabilitation/recovery therapy initiated. That focuses on Independence as an outcome or the ability to self-direct and perform life.
For effective detoxification the “detox box” is prescribed to manage the unpleasant effects of withdrawal. This pharmacologic approach is safe, effective and practical for those individuals seeking to get off opiates including buprenorphine (i.e. Suboxone, Zubsolv, Subutex, and Belbucia). Do not fear withdrawal, and instead watch and listen to patients anonymously discuss their experiences with outpatient detox under Dr. Avart in the Patient Videos section of the site.
