At Gallus Detox Centers, we prioritize evidence-based and industry leading inpatient medical detoxification. We believe patients should be allowed to maintain their dignity while taking the best step forward toward recovery.
As industry-leading experts in medical detox, we believe patients should have the opportunity to recover with dignity. Substance abuse detoxification can be a frightening and uncomfortable process. However, it’s essential to the body’s physical dependence on dangerous substances in order for holistic healing to begin.
In some cases, the client cannot wait several days for relief from the effects of substances or the intensity of withdrawal symptoms. Our proprietary IV therapies and oral medication routines help patients safely skip the worst leg of the journey with sedation-assisted detox.
Rapid detox is the process of general anesthesia-assisted detoxification that quickly and safely flushes opioids and harmful substances from the body while the client is sedated, typically by administering an opioid antagonist such as naloxone or naltrexone to remove opioid’s from the receptor site.
This is one of the fastest ways to rid the body of addictive substances while circumventing the most severe withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
The advanced rapid detoxification process only takes a few days, similar to the Gallus Method, but is vastly different from other week-long residential detox programs.
Due to the nature of rapid detox, it does come with some health risks. At Gallus Detox Center, what we offer is more sensible and judicious than the industry standard rapid detox. We uphold patient safety as our primary concern and carefully consider each case.
However, our process is still completed in a few short days and therefore not every client is a candidate for our accelerated program. Similar to traditional rapid detox programs, we can also safely detox client’s from methadone, suboxone, buprenorphine, opiates, and other substances.

At all of our medical facilities, we use a proprietary application of evidence-based protocols that we’ve coined The Gallus Method. Every medical and customer service effort is made to prioritize patient comfort and safety while seamlessly guiding them through what can be a frightening detox process. We work alongside our patients every step of the way.
Developed by our founder, Dr. Patrick Gallus, The Gallus Method was developed to counteract the numerous underperforming detox facilities throughout the country that routinely employ outdated and even dangerous methods for detoxification. Patient safety is promoted as the primary objective of our services.
Due to its accelerated and passive nature, our detox process appeals to many patients struggling with opioid addiction and their support networks.
It appeals strongly to those who have a low pain threshold or who have put off sobriety and abstinence due to the overwhelming fear of withdrawal symptoms with traditional detox methods.
It may be a good fit for patients who have unsuccessfully attempted the detox process in the past and are uncomfortable with revisiting that experience.
Anesthesia-assisted detox would be suitable for patients who have developed a dependence on opioids or whose dependence levels and dosage volume have increased.
Ultimately, it is the most appealing option for patients who are in immediate need of detoxification and healing for the fastest restoration of the life they want.
Each prospective client must undergo an extensive pre-screening application process to determine their suitability for the procedure.
In order to advance holistic and whole-patient care, we will discuss their history with substance use disorders, consumption frequency and volume, their past and present health conditions, any other medications they’ve taken, and the presence of any mental health concerns.
This detailed analysis will help our clinical care team determine their readiness for the procedure and their desire to begin recovery.
Any patients over the age of 40 may be required to undergo a stress test on arrival or in their own homes.
To discover if you or a loved one are a strong candidate for sedation-assisted detox, call our offices to schedule a consultation.
At The Gallus Medical Detox Centers, we’re proud to be one of the top industry-leading medical detox centers, and we understand that we are treating the whole person, not just a substance use disorder or drug addiction.
When the client arrives, they’ll be assigned a private room in our upscale and luxurious facility designed to promote peaceful rest and relaxation.
Our accelerated detoxification process begins with placing the client under general anesthetic, which will occur in a hospital room setting for the highest level of patient safety. The anesthesia ensures they are sedated and sleeping for several hours or up to an entire day.
While they’re sleeping, our clinical staff will also administer opioid-blocking medications, saline, and other helpful nutrients into their body.
This serves to flush the toxins out of the body and reduce the client’s uncomfortable experience with withdrawal symptoms.
When the client awakes, the substances will be flushed out of their system, and any residual opioid withdrawal symptoms will be minimized or nonexistent.
The client is then monitored overnight for one or more nights to ensure they’re stable before being released.
Because this procedure is one of the most efficient and least stressful methods of detoxing from substances and managing symptoms, it is highly appealing to patients and families alike.
However, accelerated anesthesia-assisted detox is not without some health risks and is therefore not a match for every client.
We approach every patient care plan with a holistic mindset and caring for the whole person and not just the substance use disorder or dependence.
All of our medication-assisted treatment programs are designed to suit the patient’s needs and long-term goals while considering their overall health and wellbeing.
Our clinical care team uses only evidenced-backed and individualized treatment plans that have proven to be more successful than one-size-fits-all programs.
We will conduct comprehensive psychological, physical, and social assessments in order to better understand the patient’s current condition and administer holistic treatment moving forward.
As industry leaders in medical detox, our proprietary and evidence-based IV therapy program is applied in connection with oral medication protocols that have been specifically designed to avoid cross addiction.
Our luxury inpatient rapid opioid detoxification process offers 24/7 medical supervision to safely treat each patient with efficiency and compassion with the goal of reducing opioid withdrawal side effects.
The Gallus Method specifically advances the use of industry-leading medical technology to offer cardiac telemetry and video technology. These tools give our team the most medically comprehensive picture to design holistic patient care.
All of our patient care is administered in an upscale, luxurious environment that promotes rest for a holistically restorative experience.
Together with our expert and compassionate team, we will plan out the next steps toward lasting recovery after medication-assisted therapy is completed.
After immediate care has been adjusted, our clinical care team will conduct a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment. This evaluation identifies the best next steps for successful client recovery and continuing.
Each client received a comprehensive discharge plan and guidelines for continuing on the path of recovery, and the client will be directed to one of the following options for aftercare with a trusted care partner:
Our upscale facility’s primary goal is to safely assist patients in effectively achieving personal sobriety through the practice of advanced addiction medicine. Our proprietary and evidence-based IV Therapies and oral medications are administered by 24/7 medical staff and specially trained treatment teams.
Every patient is afforded a private room in a luxurious and peaceful setting surrounded by industry leading medical professionals. We provide TVs for relaxation and entertainment, and patients are allowed to bring their personal devices. Gallus Medical Detox Centers are also proud to report high levels of customer success:
Everyone deserves to move through this healing process with dignity and free of shame or fear and the opportunity to experience fewer withdrawal symptoms.
It was an amazing experience.
The staff was extremely helpful! They did such a great job keeping me comfortable during my detox. For having a two and a half gram-a-day heroin addiction I barely had any withdrawal symptoms. It was an amazing stay under the circumstances.
Gallus Detox truly gave me my life back
These are some of the kindest, most compassionate staff I’ve ever met. I truly felt loved, and respected. I would recommend Gallus to anyone with a substance issue.
I can't thank you enough.
Each and every person I dealt with here was amazing. Thank you for making this process gentle and easy. I can’t thank you enough!
