The Bridge Device in Phoenix, AZ
This advanced, neurological-based solution exclusively available in Phoenix, AZ is the first non-pharmaceutical, non-implantable medical device on the market today for those needing help with the harsh symptoms and pain during opiate and opioid withdrawal.
Continuum Recovery Center, Phoenix’s outpatient treatment center for substance abuse is the only agency to make the Bridge Device available. When individuals come to us for the treatment of heroin, prescription pain pill dependency, or other opioid addictions, our medical staff will assess their current state of health and identify areas that need attention. If the patient would like to utilize the Bridge Device and meets all the criteria, our medical director who is trained in the administration of the Bridge Device will position and connect the electro auricular device. Once the device is in place, a strategic and customized addiction treatment plan will be created and opiate detox begins. We can even help patients in withdrawal from suboxone and methadone. Methadone requires the use of two devices.
Bridge Device for Opioid Addiction
The Bridge Device significantly reduces the unpleasant physical and mental side-effects of withdrawal. To be frank, withdrawal hurts. Coping with the body aches, pains, flu-like symptoms, and the intense mental craving is the primary barrier in kicking the addiction. Make no mistake: if you’re addicted to opioids, you probably know how hard it is to wean yourself off them. You will most likely need medical and psychological support to sustain your withdrawal process. Depending on how long you’ve been using, the symptoms can be debilitating.
Detoxing is a Crucial First Step
Getting past opioid drug detox can be daunting and difficult to sustain. In fact, the initial part of addiction treatment known as the detox phase has, generally speaking, a high rate of failure. While patients may have the commitment to their opioid addiction recovery, the pain and overbearing challenges that come during detox may prove to be too much to endure.
Unfortunately, many patients can only last a day or two during the detox process and ultimately succumb to the pain and cravings, falling back into active opioid use.
