The next generation of detox is IV-based therapy, and with that has come a whole bout of controversy as is the norm for any new therapy or methodology that is brought to the forefront of addiction recovery techniques says Drug Rehab Davenport. IV detoxification therapy is used in a very controlled environment; patients are detoxed in the most comfortable way possible through intravenous injection of wean-down medications into their bloodstreams.
Medications administered through the IV and into the patients’ bodies help keep the patients calm and relaxed, almost totally pain-free, and comfortable too, thus helping the patient have a much more successful detox in the long run, or at least certainly a much more comfortable one to say the least, rather than simply going cold turkey or attempting to detox on their own without the help of anything at all.
But what of the long term effects of such a program? How well has it been tested? Is it going to just cause addicts to become addicted to whatever it is that’s in the IV, as is so often the case with addiction detoxification? These are just some of the concerns that still abound this new and interesting yet controversial addiction detoxification method.
Why the Method is Being Used in Davenport
Davenport for some time now has been a micro-hub for addiction to substances that create strong dependences, substances like opiates and alcohol. For these addictions, the IV detox method has so far proven to be workable, or at least more workable than simply going at it cold turkey or popping other pills in detox to help with the wean down process. Obviously, according to Drug Rehabilitation in Davenport, the ideal method for detoxing off of drugs and alcohol is to use a holistic route in which one can experience freedom from chemical dependence in a holistic environment but without going through nearly as intensive of pain as would be experienced if one tried a cold turkey approach.
IV detox therapy does have some workability that is largely due to bioavailability of the medication instantly entering the bloodstream of the patient. The Boston University School of Medicine refers to bioavailability as:
Whether this method will have a good effect in Davenport will remain to be seen. Certainly, opiate abuse is pretty terrible here. For example:
