Safe & Effective Opiate Detox

By carefully selecting our patients, we can increase the safety, improve the outcome, and reduce the cost of the opiate detox treatment. Patients are screened with utmost care to establish medical and psychological fitness and readiness for a safe detox. Those who need additional examinations, such as stress-echo tests, will be directed to do so prior to the procedure. This reassures patients of a safe, successful, and effective outcome. We are dedicated to our practice and loyal to our patients. Nowhere in the United States or Canada will you find a sedation opiate detox program safer and more effective than ours.


Unique, Individualized Addiction Treatment

The Advanced opiate detox treatment is unique since our board certified doctors have individualized and perfected the techniques to meet the specific needs of each patient. Our exceptional procedure also entails hydrating the body, replenishing vitamins, and correcting electrolyte deficiencies.


We specialize in sedation assisted rapid detox for all opiates, but we can also assist patients dependent on benzodiazepines to wean off of their dependency post-discharge. Since the process of weaning off benzodiazepines can take up to eight weeks, we do offer advice and keep in touch with our patients to help them succeed throughout their rehabilitation.

The safe detox available at Advanced has been so carefully constructed because our primary goal is to promote healthy lifestyles, one patient at a time.
