Opiate detox. We are able to offer 3 different detoxification regimes if a person has been using opiates or opiate based prescribed medications.
Methadone – Opiate detox
This is the preferred medication to use if a person is currently already taking methadone at levels of 40mls or more per day, prior to their admission to Pierpoint House. The amount of prescribed Methadone you are on, will determine the amount of time you will need in residential rehab to get off the drug. But if you are not on prescribed Methadone and buying it off the streets. Then we can detox you in 14 days.
This is the preferred medication to use if a person is currently taking methadone of less than 40mls per day or they have never had methadone in the past. We can also detox the client on Methadone if they so prefer. We generally reduce Methadone by 6mls a week, then drop down to 4 mls, 2 mls 1 ml towards the end off the detox, ass this is the hardest part to get out of the clients system. So you can roughly work out how long you will need in rehab from these figures. This is the same as all rehab centres.
This is the preferred medication to use if a person is currently taking Subutex to control their opiate use. We regret that we cannot offer a Subutex Detox if the person is not already prescribed it prior to their admission to Pierpoint House. This is the same with all residential rehab centres.
