Novus Medical Detox Center Accepting High Dosage Methadone Users
TAMPA, FL: Novus Medical Detox Facility of Pasco County, Florida (http://novusdetox.com) is accepting methadone users on high dosages for methadone detox, who are normally turned away from other medical detox facilities. Novus has successfully detoxed a number of patients that had been taking high daily doses of methadone – as much as 400 milligrams per day. These successful detoxifications were normally completed in under two weeks.
Drug rehab facilities will generally not accept people who are taking more than 30 milligrams of methadone per day, and most medical detox centers will not accept anyone taking more than 80 milligrams of methadone per day. So what is someone to do if they are taking more than 80 milligrams of Methadone per day, and they wanted to get off the drug? In the past their options were severely limited.
The Director of Novus Medical Detox Center stated “There are many effective rehabilitation facilities that are successful in helping people become drug-free. However, few if any will accept someone on a dose of methadone over 80 milligrams per day. Most of the time the person seeking methadone help is told that they must first bring their methadone usage down to 20-40 milligrams per day and only then will the rehabilitation facility will accept them. Studies show that most methadone addicts who seek help have tried to withdraw or at least cut down their dose of methadone in the past. Almost all of these people were unsuccessful because they began experiencing painful withdrawal symptoms and stopped their taper. The rehabilitation facilities who are not able to accept these methadone addicts have tried to refer them to medical detox facilities, but they have found that there are very few medical detox facilities that will accept a methadone patient taking over 80 milligrams a day of methadone. Some medical detox facilities are not able to effectively handle the pain of the methadone withdrawal symptoms and the addicts then leave the detox center before completing their withdrawal. Then they have no choice but to go back to the methadone clinic and their despair of ever being free of this addiction grows even more.”
Novus has been working for over a year on creating a protocol for people taking high dosages of methadone. One recent patient says, “Without this medical detoxification process, I highly doubt I could have lived through getting off methadone and benzos. I was taking up to 400 mg of methadone on a daily basis along with 30 mg of Xanax or 10 mg of Klonopin. I felt completely and utterly hopeless. Novus not only gave me a clean start, not only gave me hope, it gave me my livelihood and family back. No words could truly express the gratitude I feel.”
While many medical detox programs take place in a hospital, Novus Medical Detox Center specializes in handling drug dependencies in a private setting that is stress-free, comfortable and safe. The facility, set on 3.2 wooded acres 45 minutes north of Tampa, FL, offers private rooms, TV and high speed internet access. Detoxification programs at Novus provide detox services for people wishing to withdraw from drugs including opiate detox, heroin detox, psychotropic detox, alcohol detox, benzodiazepine detox and prescription drug detox.
