PHOENIX, April 13, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- With the recent uptick in fentanyl-related overdoses and increase in first
But now, there is a gentler, safer way to opioid detox that provides the much needed relief to get through it quickly and move on to a personalized addiction treatment program sooner. Continuum Recovery Center in Phoenix is the first drug rehab facility in Arizona to offer the solution known as the NSS-2 Bridge Device.
The difference that 15 to 30 minutes can make. To a person immersed in opioid withdrawal, time itself is painful. The initial drug detox can take one week or longer to effectively remove the toxic body burden from their system. In essence, the body and the mind crave the former drug of choice presenting symptoms that are painful and overwhelmingly uncomfortable – so much so, that many opt to go back to drug use.
The health practitioners at Continuum Recovery Center saw the benefits in the FDA-cleared Bridge Device and wanted to bring it to their patients. Through case studies and video testament individuals who had the Bridge Device administered experienced a drastic drop in withdrawal symptoms within minutes of its application.
This neurological-based solution is the first non-pharmaceutical, non-implantable medical device on the market today for those needing help with the harsh symptoms and pain during opiate and opioid withdrawal. By identifying the neurological aspects of addictive behaviors and blocking the pain receptors that can cause the symptoms of withdrawal, the discomfort of detox is greatly lessened in sensation, as well as duration. With the Bridge Device, the time needed for most patients to get through opioid detox entails a mere two to five days.
Carefully placed behind the patient's ear, this device's battery-powered chip enables the nerve stimulator to go to work by sending electrical impulses to neurological pathways. This process calms the withdrawal symptoms and distress of opioid detox allowing more people an easier pathway to living life drug free.
Some of the symptoms alleviated include:
There are other criteria pertinent to its use: patients' current state of health and medical history will play a role in whether the device is recommended.
