MS Contin RAPID DETOX UNDER SEDATION

The MAT (medication assisted treatment) with Methadone and buprenorphine products (Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv) is trading one opiate for the other. Consequently, the patient will still be dependent on the opiate Methadone or buprenorphine and will go through withdrawals when it is discontinued. Patients wanting to be opiate free reach out to us. We detox all opiates, rather than substituting one opiate with another opiate.

Rapid detox under sedation is a medical detoxification treatment offered by All Opiates Detox for patients dependent on MS Contin. It consists of sedating the patient and removing MS Contin from the brain receptor while the patient is sleeping. Acute withdrawals are precipitated with an opiate blocker. These withdrawals will pass during the sedation period. Once the withdrawals are over, and the brain receptors are free of the opiate Morphine, a blocker is placed to prevent any opiates from getting back into the brain receptor.

The blocker of choice used at All Opiates Detox is an implant. Dr. George prefers the Naltrexone implant blocker for several reasons. First, the Naltrexone implant lasts approximately two months, as opposed to Vivitrol (lasts about 28 days) or tablets (have to be taken daily). Another reason our physicians prefer the implant over the injection is for patients that may not be able to tolerate Naltrexone due to side effects, sensitivity or allergies. The implant can be removed from under the skin, whereas the injection stays in the body for about 28 days and therefore cannot be removed once it is administered. It is recommended to stay on Naltrexone maintenance therapy for at least one year to allow the brain to heal from the damage caused by the drug use and abuse.

Our success rate is near 100% for helping patients detox off opiates without the excruciating pain and discomfort of the withdrawals. Aftercare consisting of the Naltrexone opiate blocker, psychotherapy, and 12 step programs are recommended to ensure long-term abstinence and success.

MS Contin DETAILS

MS Contin is an opiate used for moderate to severe pain. It is found naturally in a number of plants and animals. MS Contin is the trade name for the long-acting formulation of morphine. MS Contin acts directly on the CNS (Central Nervous System) to decrease the feeling of pain. MS Contin is available in 15mg, 30mg, 60mg, 100mg and 200mg pill form, controlled-release, long-acting, formulation used when a continuous, around-the-clock opiate analgesic is needed for an extended period.

MS Contin is not intended to be used on an as-needed basis for pain. Maximum effect, peak concentrations of long-acting morphine are about two hours after the MS Contin dose. The therapeutic duration of effect tends to last for a 12-hour period since the formulation is controlled-release.

MS Contin is a Schedule II drug since it has a high potential for addiction and abuse.

MS Contin ABUSE

Improper use and abuse of MS Contin can lead to dependence, tolerance, and addiction. Opiates can be habit-forming, causing not only physical but also psychological dependence. Withdrawals are likely to occur if the dose of the opiates is reduced or discontinued after long-term use.

Using opiates for an extended period can lead to tolerance, where the user needs to increase the dosage of their opiates to achieve the desired effect, whether the desired result is pain control or euphoria.

Once the patient develops a tolerance, it becomes even more difficult to stop using due to the withdrawals. Symptoms of withdrawals are an indication of physical dependence and addiction to the opiate MS Contin. Most patients describe withdrawals as the worst, most frightening experience one will ever encounter. One can only imagine the excruciating pain when the opiate user says that they’d rather die than go through the withdrawals. Morphine physical dependence symptoms, such as withdrawals, lead to psychological dependence. That is when addiction takes over the mind and life of the morphine opiate user.
