They say it takes twenty-one days to kick a bad habit. It may sound as simple as that but it is not easy. Letting go of a bad habit is extremely hard now imagine trying to kick an even worse habit and that is of taking drugs. There are many different methods that one can attempt in trying to get their lives back on track and try to recover from the debilitating hold that especially opiate addiction can have on a person. For opiate addicts there has been a solution that has been especially designed for those that are addicted to heroin and prescription drugs such as Vicodin, Codeine, Morphine and OxyCotin. This solution is known as a suboxone 4 day detox.
What is this drug and what does it do?
Suboxone the wonder drug allows and addict to get clean without experiencing these excruciating symptoms. It is a combination drug that has buprenorphine an opioid and naloxone a narcotic. In turn, these work together on the nervous system reducing cravings and curbing the withdrawal symptoms. Together with other factors such as group therapy and having a good support system, a patient can go through recovery without many issues when taking Suboxone.
Managing the Withdrawal
There is nothing as discouraging to an addict when trying to get clean as withdrawal symptoms. In many cases the reason it is difficult for a drug user to stop taking drugs is the painful withdrawal they have to undergo once the drug has left the system. Moreover, it only takes a few hours after the effects of the drug wears off that withdrawal kicks in. It is an uncomfortable experience and many users decide that taking the drug again is better. Opiates are usually drugs used to assist with chronic pain conditions. They are highly addictive and leave the body dependent on them. When the withdrawal begins almost 12 hours after taking the last dose of opiates an addict is in for an excruciating experience. Withdrawal symptoms will come in two phases. The first phase comes with the feeling of anxiety and agitation. One goes through a feeling of having no control of their body. For example, they’ll tear and have a runny nose while sweating uncontrollably. They also have no control over yawning, and their muscles ache. Just as one feels that it cannot get any worse, phase two comes with cramping and dilated pupils. The worst comes when one loses control of their bowels, having a running stomach, nausea and vomiting and the goose bumps that just do not go away.
Suboxone 4 Day Detox
Any individual should take suboxone under a doctor’s supervision. Seeing as symptoms start to present themselves after twelve hours of the last dosage. Suboxone should be taken once the initial mild symptoms start to show themselves. The reason why it is given once symptoms show is so that if taken too early it may trigger withdrawal symptoms too early in the detox process. This is when the three to four day detox treatment must begin. With the monitoring of the patient by the doctor, they can now determine the correct dosage for a person depending on how far gone in the addiction one was. On the first day of detox, the dosage taken should be able to completely suppress symptoms. This should happen within the first four to six hours of having started the detox treatment. Moreover, from research and testimonials from people who have taken the route of the four day detox, it is ideal not to do this alone. A doctor can help and determine what works best. Four day detox is the average detox time but it will not necessarily work for some. Depending on how long one has been on the drugs, if a user has been on the opioids for years then the four day detox is not ideal for them. They would need to at least be on it for 14 days for them to start feeling normal.
