The Midwest Rapid Opiate Detoxification Specialist's (MRODS) Opiate Dependency Recovery Program is designed for individuals who are dependent on opiate type drugs and medications such as: heroin, Methadone, opium or other pain medications such as: OxyContin, Vicodin, Lorcet, Darvon, Morphine and other narcotic type medications.
Prospective patients are given a comprehensive screening and evaluation which includes EKG, Chest X-Ray, urinalysis and blood work. A board certified internist will review the results and provide a comprehensive physical. Issues such as the legitimate use of pain medications are also assessed.
Needs for continuing care are assessed during the initial planning stage.
Upon meeting the proper criteria, the prospective patient is admitted late in the afternoon into a private room on a skilled care medical floor of our JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) accredited acute care medical center. Family members are encouraged to be part of the process and are welcome to be with the patient throughout the stay. The following morning the patient is brought to the Anesthesia Assisted Rapid Opiate Detoxification (AAROD) procedure area to complete their detoxification while under anesthesia.
