Rapid Detox May Be Quick. But Does It Work?

Medical science has been after an easy cure for alcohol some for quite a while. With the kind of insight that medical research has into alcoholism at this point, anyone with a dependency problem needs to work with a doctor, usually out of a hospital bed. It can need a great deal of the will power, time, sacrifice and patience to break free. But what if there was some kind of rapid detox pill that you could take, and the following morning, you would find yourself magically cleansed and no longer craving.

If you would think about it, the kind of thing that people expect of rapid detox is remarkably similar to the way alcoholics see life – instant gratification and no pain. No wonder they would really like something like this in their detoxification too. They often seem to have a hard time staying committed to something so that they may earn their happiness. It's no wonder then that when advertisements proclaim rapid detox methods and try to sell them at a healthy price, alcoholics are more than happy to fall for it. That's the whole problem – they only want happiness today, and they don't really care much about how they get there.

One particular rapid detox method – known by the brand name rapid opiate detoxification – is popular, and it's making quite a bit of headway in countries around the world. Certainly, there are certain ways in which this ROD method is effective. What it doesn't do is to cure addiction painlessly and overnight. Why, even some doctors fall for the charms of the instantmethod. People have died in at least one American detoxification clinic that followed this method. Of course, they don't really admit as much over there. They just say that  those patients happened to be ill anyway. Critics though, feel that the rapid detox procedure they usedt just stressed their systems too much.

The ROD rapid detox method uses medication to try to block opiate receptors in the brain. The medicines they give also try to hurry the body through all the things that it is supposed go through in a whole week over the course of a regular detox routine. You're supposed to wake up in maybe 10 hours and everything's right as rain.

But how can rapid detox methods advertise their services and actually make money off them if they aren't proven? Well, apparently, many studies that have ever concluded that the method is successful, have been conducted by one organization or another that profits from it. In truth, independent studies have actually found that these methods don't work. There still are cravings after the process completes. People do relapse often.
