Outpatient Opiate Detoxification Treatment in the San Francisco Bay Area
The opioid epidemic is real and dangerous. Deaths from opiates have increased significantly over the last few years. Opioids are a serious threat to our country. Addiction from opioids may start with prescription opioids taken orally. This can increase to smoking or snorting opioids. This can become too expensive to afford or the patient can obtain a prescription. The patient may then progress to heroin which is cheaper. Heroin may be injected or smoked. The patient may start injection heroin. Keep in mind there is no longer pure heroin. Most heroin is mixed with extremely cheap and deadly products such as elephant tranquilizers or Fentanyl. Pro-Fentanyl, is a new opioid produced by black markets. The product is so toxic that even a very small amount of the white powder can be deadly. It is 1000 times more potent than the original heroin. As these products become more dangerous, it is extremely profitable for cartels and black markets. We offer up to date specialized care including all forms of Suboxone (films, pills, monthly injections). We also offer Vivitrol and Naltrexone for relapse prevention.
Opioids are powerful painkillers which can produce euphoric highs and their addictive grip is notoriously difficult to break.
The cycle can be broken and a happier life without addiction is possible. Many have taken this journey already, but drug detoxification is still a frightening prospect to many drug users who want to escape dependency.
At our outpatient opiate detoxification office, we walk with you through the trials of withdrawal, guide you beyond dependence on opiates and help you to emerge in a place of clear physical and mental health.
