The Lofexadine Detox.
If a person has been using 20mls or less of Methadone per day or if they haven’t used Methadone at all, the preferred detox regime would be Lofexadine.
Lofexadine is introduced on the day of admission. On the morning after admission, a small amount of methadone is given as a one off dose. This is to help the transition of the person having used opiates regularly to not having any opiates. It also gives the Lofexadine chance to become established in the person’s blood stream.
As part of the Lofexadine detox, we also use Remedeine (dihydrocodeine and paracetamol) and Ibuprofen (anti-inflammatory) to help combat any aches and pains the person may experience and also use Oxazepam (short acting benzodiazepine) to help alleviate any feelings of anxiety. For the first 4 nights, to help establish a regular sleeping pattern, we use Zopiclone (sleeping tablet) to aid sleep.
A Lofexadine detox lasts for 10 days.
In addition to the Medical Detoxification, all clients will have the benefit of:
Auricular Acupuncture to help reduce anxiety and stress.
Massage sessions to help reduce any aches and pains which may be experienced.
24 hour support from Qualified Nurses, Support Workers and Addiction Therapists.
Involvement in the Modified 12-Step Therapeutic Stabilisation Programme,and the therapeutic community of the House
Herbal Teas to help develop normal sleep patterns
Peer Group Support at all times
