Advanced Rapid Detox
Advanced Rapid Detox, a division of Pontiac General Hospital, is operated by Dr. Julia Aharonov, a board-certified Anesthesiologist. Our mission is to provide superior drug addiction recovery services and aftercare for people afflicted with opiate addiction. Now, you can finally enjoy a second chance at being free from opiate dependence in a hospital setting with sedation assisted opiate detox performed by Board Certified, knowledgeable, and experienced physicians.Through knowledge and experience, our doctors have perfected the procedure and individualized it to each patient based on the drug use history and co-occurring medical and psychiatric disorders. We keep patients sedated throughout the entire withdrawals which can last up to eight hours. We are the nation's only rapid opiate detox center that includes unlimited aftercare done by the treating physician. We include a Vivitrol (naltrexone) injection as an integral part of our procedure and recommend long term naltrexone therapy after our treatment. Our treatment is a good beginning of a lifelong process of staying away from drugs, making the right life choices, and continuing with private or group therapy such as NA. We are available for continued support. We are privileged to provide treatment for patients from every state, Canada and around the world. Most patients do not want to do this in their back yard because of confidentiality. They get on an airplane for a few days "vacation". We are near Detroit, so pretty convenient to everything. Patients come in on a Monday and are typically ready to leave on a Thursday morning - drug free. We encourage a patient to come with a family member.
