Opiate Detox West Palm Encourages Narcan to Prevent Overdose
This article, opiate detox west Palm encourages Narcan Education to save lives. Hopefully will bring light to the negative stigma that is being reinforced by the media. Headlines below are in newspapers, magazines, and reported on the daily news now on a horrifyingly regular basis. Many of these articles have perpetuated that Narcan entices addicts to continue to use. This article provides much needed information on this life saving drug.
Typically, in the context of somebody who was found unresponsive and unable to be resuscitated from opiate overdose. The sad and scary reality is that novel opioids, not FDA approved drugs and often not even labeled for human consumption, are constantly being synthesized and sold by drug dealers across the globe.
Basically, clandestine scientists work in the laboratory to move some atoms around, making synthetic opioids such as acryl fentanyl or tetrahydrofuran fentanyl from known parent drugs like fentanyl (which is the most potent FDA-approved opiate used in human medicine at about 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and 30 to 50 times more potent than heroin). The drug dealer’s goal is to make a cheaper, stronger, easier to transport product to get addicts “higher” and make more money. The unfortunate side-effect is that these new synthetic opiates are so strong, in fact, that people are dying from the minutest amount laced into what they think is heroin.
Headlines on Narcan and Naloxone
Some think Narcan is giving a license to addicts to continue using knowing they can be brought back to live. Fact check, this is not true. This is one of the reasons why opiate detox West Palm encourages learning how to administer this drug across populations. The headlines have been all over.
“New Naloxone-Resistant Drug Acrylfentanyl Is a Public Health Emergency” (Cision PR Newswire); “Narcan-resistant Drug Appears in Indiana” (EMSWORLD); “Narcan resistant synthetic opioids found in Kentucky” (New Objectives/Blog); “Fentanyl Found in Georgia Resists Life-Saving Naloxone Antidote” (Newsweek)
Logic would dictate that people would never intentionally put something that could very easily kill them into their bodies. But, logic and addiction are often mutually exclusive, and so goes the unrelenting strength, power, and counter intuitive destructiveness of the disease. As a matter of fact, addiction treatment patients say that when they hear somebody has overdosed they will intentionally seek out that person’s supplier because it is “good stuff”. Very scary situation and one which has cost countless lives as this opioid epidemic rages on. This is not because they say “Narcan will bring me back, so it’s OK to continue using.”
Narcan Education Can Save Lives
The second reason opiate detox West Palm encourages is it saves lives. There is another problem seen by opiate detox West Palm. These these new synthetic opioids- the so-called “Narcan-resistant” concept of these powerful drugs. The most common cause of mortality in opiate overdose is fulminant respiratory depression (i.e. the patient simply stops breathing). If the patient stops breathing there is no oxygen inhaled to reach vital organs such as the heart and brain. Prolonged respiratory arrest leads to death or permanent organ damage.
Brain damage from cerebral anoxia can occur in as little as six minutes. Narcan is the one pharmacologic “antidote” we have to combat acute opioid overdose and death, but it can be far less effective when new synthetic opioids are in the patients’ body, making overdose, organ damage, and death all the more probable even when Narcan is given promptly.
To be completely accurate, the term “Narcan-resistant” is a bit of a hyperbolic misnomer. Narcan will still work in patients overdosing on these new synthetic opiates- that pharmacology doesn’t change, but much, much more is needed to reverse respiratory depression and stave off death. This is because synthetic opiates bind so strongly to the body’s opiate receptors where Narcan is trying to attach to reverse the opiates’ effect.
This relative resistance is one reason that Evzio, a Narcan auto-injector (think Narcan epi-pen), recently increased their dose from 0.4mg to 2mg. The 2mg dose is certainly more effective. however, there are even still cases where it is not potent enough! What this comes down to is that we need some other method to be able to keep patients alive, keep oxygen-rich blood circulating to vital organs, until EMS can arrive, stabilize, and transport the patient to the emergency department.
Opiate detox West Palm Beach is only one city in the US that is trying to educate on Narcan. Drug rehabs Across the US should be providing widespread proficiency and training in overdose prevention. Particularly treatment centers, sober homes and patients’ family members, who are in contact with those suffering with addiction.
Overdose prevention means the proper administration of Narcan. It’s, the ability to activate emergency response and initiate CPR, and the utilization of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). These are all necessary skills if we are to do everything we can to save a patient who has overdosed on opiates. Please consider learning these life-saving skills of “overdose prevention”

Addiction Professional Referral Group Member of the Month
The addiction professional of the month is Steve Wize, CEO of Mental Fitness. Steve’s post was not only the most active but also, addresses one of the most controversial topics in our industry.

The addiction professional referral group is a trusted resource for business, drug rehab marketing, and administrative operating strategies. Our industry is experiencing unprecedented changes affecting the administration, business, and marketing operating procedures. Laissez-faire business strategies are no longer effective. Using the old business and marketing strategies puts organizations in our industry at great risk of closing their doors. We are seeing many addiction treatment centers and opiate detox and sober livings closing their doors. The organizations that are closing all have one thing in common. They stayed with business as usual tactics including boots on the ground marketing, call centers, and Adwords as their main strategies. They all suffered from Digital Darwinism.
The Internet is the #1 Source for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers
The web is the absolute #1 resource to reach potential clients in any business. The number of people using the internet is growing astronomically every day. The light speed growth has caused severe marketing problems for almost every industry. Understanding how to effectively utilize the web to generate clients or customers is an overwhelming task. Almost all treatment centers and ancillary service providers in the substance abuse industry do not understand web marketing. Our industry has traditionally resorted to short-term solutions to their long-term problem of maintaining a census. They, almost always are looking for an instant return (30 days) on their marketing.
Over 90% of our industry suffers from digital Darwinism. Digital Darwinism is when technology moves faster than industries can adapt. Why does web drug rehab marketing outperform all other marketing combined?
Currently, the average person spends nearly 10 hours a day online. Unbelievably, we now spend more time on the Internet than we do sleeping (8.4 hours).
Today there are approximately 7.4 billion people living on the planet, and ~ 23 billion internet of things (IoT) connected devices, which is an average of 3 devices per person. By 2025 it is estimated that there will be over 75 billion IoT connected devices worldwide.
There will be at least 3.5 billion Google searches performed every day. Google also processes over 40K search queries every second. That translates to 1.2 trillion Google searches per year.
Google.com is the most popular website in the world. www.Youtube.com is second and Facebook.com is third.
Understanding Drug Rehab Marketing Like You Understand Addiction Treatment
Almost every addiction treatment center owner understands addiction treatment and has an extreme passion to help others. However, this is only 1/3 of what is needed to run a successful drug and alcohol addiction treatment center. Owners of treatment centers and sober livings also need to completely understand the business and marketing components. They have to be extremely educated in these two areas. Relying upon a drug rehab marketing agency and drug rehab business consultants is extremely risky if they are not educated in these areas. Having a solid education in these areas is paramount for owners and operators. With this key knowledge, operators will be able to tell if these professionals are performing for their organization.
For example, over 90% of substance abuse provider websites are not structurally correct. Poor website development is the #1 and most costly mistake made in web marketing. If a website is not structurally correct, you are leaking Google juice. Every marketing dollar you are putting into web marketing, without having a structurally correct website, is being wasted by leaking Google juice and the opportunity to get on page one of Google organically. It is extremely easy to tell if a treatment center understands web marketing by looking at their website. A website is the foundation of web marketing. If your website is not structurally correct, you are wasting every marketing dollar you put into web marketing.
The top 3 organic slots and Google maps account for 70% of page one clicks. To put into perspective, AdWords or PPC only accounts for 2% of the clicks. While AdWords does produce calls, many of these calls are poor with many asking for Medicaid and Medicare. The top 3 organic leads are much more qualified for the services and insurance provided.
The # mistake in drug rehab marketing is website development. When you build a house, you build it on concrete. Almost all drug rehab websites are built on sand. Almost all websites in our industry are built by website designers, not website developers. This critical and costly error is the fault of the treatment center owner and the marketing agencies they have used. As an owner, if you understood what needs to be done for proper website structure and drug rehab SEO, you would be able to tell if the professionals you hired are doing their job.
The important difference is a designer will build a beautiful, aesthetically appealing website. A website developer opens the golden Google doors for Google to effectively communicate with google’s searcher. Many addiction treatment centers websites are ascetically beautiful. While this is somewhat useful for the target market, it is not very useful in Google ranking your website on page one. The first part of getting on page one of Google is to have a website that communicates to Google that you can answer the terms that are searched. Here are some of the common mistakes made substance abuse websites;
Is the hierarchy of our website good for Google?
Do we have schema (Sign Posts for Google) incorporated into our website?
Does our website have a sitemap and have we told Google it’s there?
Is our website fast enough on mobile for the new speed update released on July 9, 2018?
Are we using Yoast to check the bare minimum for our drug rehab SEO?
Are the URL’s for our website correct for SEO?
Does our website have an SSL certificate?
Does our blog have SEO for our keywords? If so, what are those keywords and how many of the blog posts have made it to page one of Google?
Do the main pages of our website have SEO for these keywords?
Have we done an H-Tag audit on our website
Do our pics have ALT tags and are they geo-coded?
Have we done a hyper-local page?
Do we have a skyscraper article?
Are our Google maps properly coded and placed on our website?
How are we building quality back-links?
How many citations do we have?
Do we understand and utilize your Google Analytics?
Do we understand and use call tracking metrics?

Do we understand Google analytics and how to use it to build our marketing campaign?
What posts are producing the most calls from our call tracking metrics?
When was the last time we posted in our Google My Business?
When was the last time we uploaded pictures in our Google My Business?
Are our pictures on the website optimized (GEO and Keywords)?
Is our blog attracting and engaging for our target audience?
Are we building a targeted and captured social media audience (from SEO visits) of professionals and individuals seeking treatment with our drug rehab marketing on Facebook and LinkedIn?
Does our current drug rehab marketing agency provide SEO training?
How Does Boots on the Ground Compare to Web Marketing
The industry trend has been traditionally relying upon boots on the ground marketing. While this should be a part of your marketing mix, it should only be one piece. Above you see the astronomical numbers of people using the web and the amazing activity that is produced every day. It is impossible for outreach to obtain even 1% of these numbers. The small to medium players consensus is that we cannot compete with the big players because they are spending too much on web marketing. This is a huge misconception in our industry. The small to medium players can outperform the big players in some areas if they have;
Proper website structure
On page and off page SEO
Use of key long tail keywords
Knowing where and how to get PR7, PR8 and PR9 back links
Understanding the Business Side of Addiction Treatment
Our industry is experiencing many paradigm shifts. It is critical that operators of drug rehabilitation centers, opiate detox West Palm Beach and sober homes get educated on proven business strategies. The conversations on the business and operation side of our industry are much different than the conversations that outreach professionals have. Only the best-educated CEO’s, Executives and Directors will survive the extreme competition in our 40 billion dollars a year industry. These leaders need to completely understand many different areas;
Laws and Regulations
Electronic Medical Records
Accreditation and Certifications
Addiction Professional Referral Group Helping Addiction Professionals Nationwide
We will continue to be a trusted resource for every addiction professional by educating on ethical business practices, provide useful resources, assist in connecting for new relationships, educate on evidenced-based treatment, fight against patient brokering, educate on ethical substance abuse marketing practices (in this group, with our marketing and at our addiction conferences), and use our large voice to encourage industry self-regulation.
Executive education is key for owners and operators. Behavioral Health Network Resources also provides Addiction Executive conferences educating on these key areas. Our addiction conferences each have 5 proven Executive Thought Leaders presenting at each conference. These one-day conferences focus on the business and marketing side of our industry. We have hosted 14 conferences and the success has been the valuable content and the talk show host, town forum format. These conferences put together the minds of the 125-200 attendees in an open forum. We hope you will attend our next addiction conferences EMP Series on 5/21/19 in Florida.
The bridge device opiate detox West Palm Beach is an option for those suffering an addiction from prescription drugs and heroin. This is one option that almost eliminates the fearful opiate withdrawal that prevents many from seeking substance abuse treatment help. It is the biggest barrier preventing individuals from entering drug addiction treatment. Now, with the NSS-2, there is no need to fear opiate withdrawal anymore. Opiate withdrawal including
Suboxone is the most difficult part of quitting an opiate addiction. Whether it involves codeine, fentanyl, Vicodin or heroin, the acute pain associated with the process is scary and painful. Many experts believe that the pain of opiate detox and the fear of opiate withdrawal are some of the greatest barriers to seeking opiate detox. It’s clear that many patients suffering from opiate withdrawal quit before they can be moved to a medication-assisted treatment program like Vivitrol.
What is the Opiate Detox Bridge Device NSS-2?
The Bridge device is a state of the artbringingmuch-needed innovation to addiction treatment medicine. The severe withdrawal of opiates causes individuals physical pain, sweating, internal gastrointestinal pain, vomiting, anxiety, joint pain, and muscle pain to name a few. Many fear opiate detox and Suboxone detox stopping them from entering long-term recovery.
The bridge device study used eight intensive out-patient addiction treatment centers from 5 states. Each of the participating centers provided qualified physicians, stabilization teams, case managers, and counselors. Each individual participant received their own evaluation on their opiate use. These out-patient addiction treatment centers provided data from individuals with the mean drug use of 70 months and 24 months of active opiate drug use.
This is not new technology, it has been around for decades. It has endless applications with more coming. In addition to opiate detox, this technology branches off into many areas and is currently FDA approved for back and knee pain, and major depressive disorders.
Opiate Detox West Palm Beach, Florida Detox Options
Drug rehabs in Florida and West Palm Beach, Suboxone Doctors, clinics. rehabs and opiate detox centers have limited options in treating opiate addiction. this is why the bridge device is so useful. Some of these are naltrexone, buprenorphine, and methadone. The heroin epidemic is taking over 150 lives a day and the current treatments have side effects. Here is a list of the current opiate addiction treatment options;
Buprenorphine includes Suboxone, Zubsolv, and Bunavail, and the newest being Probuphine a sub-dermal implant.
Methadone options include Dolophine, Symoron, Amidone, and Methadone.
Naltrexone, sold under the brand names Vivitrol and ReVia.
In addition there are some comfort medications including clonidine, Vistaril, baclofen, and trazodone, however, they do a poor job of bridging the gap to Vivitrol.
First Non-narcotic Opiate Detox Device Approved by the FDA
The bridge device opiate detox West Palm Beach is the first non-narcotic device option with little to no side effects in treating the heroin epidemic. There is also an FDA approved non-opiate medication that can help with opiate detox and detoxification of Suboxone. We are losing more than 150 lives per day to this epidemic. This device eliminates the need for Buprenorphine or methadone. It is saving many lives by bridging the gap transiting individuals to Vivitrol. This being used by drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers across the US.
The Bridge Device NSS-2 Eliminates Opiate and Prescription Drug Withdrawal
The opiate and heroin epidemic has been fueled by over prescribing opiates by Doctors and pain clinics. Many don’t know how to stop using heroin or prescribe medications. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the bridge device, a technology that gets an individual through one stage of recovery.
However, they must be evaluated by a qualified physician. The bridge device is not a cure for addiction. It is a bridge to overcome obstacles to start the recovery journey. The bridge can get individuals from detox to treatment and medication-assisted treatment.
Medication-assisted treatment is becoming mainstream, especially for drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers. This is good for the Bridge Device. Insurance companies are starting to demand document progress showing improvement in the addiction treatment process. The medication-assisted treatment provides this, however, to get to the use of Vivitrol, an individual must be completely clean of all opiates.
Otherwise, the alternative is the use of Suboxone clinics and Doctors. While these are effective in treating and saving lives, it is extremely difficult to come off of and stop using. Recovery is a life-long journey and all your treatment should be case managed. this should be done by a physician, qualified counselor and addiction professionals guiding your recovery journey.
The opiate detox West Palm Beach option is also available in some other states across the nation. The bridge device technology works through neuro-stimulation and is an auricular peripheral nerve field stimulation that connects topically to the patient’s ear, blocking pain signals from getting through the brain.
The bridge device is cleared by the Food & Drug Administration as a 510(K) this technology it is minimally-invasive, easy to work with, has a proven clinical track record and is making a tremendous improvement to both detox and rehab protocols.
This is the latest and potentially the best option for opiate detox in West Palm Beach. This opiate epidemic game changer is the latest scientific advancement in addiction treatment. This is also being used by many sober homes West Palm Beach due to its outpatient setting. It drastically reduces the withdrawal process to 5 days or less and usually works within 10 minutes of installation. Its main purpose is to quickly and painlessly reduce the pain associated with acute opiate withdrawal.
No More Painful Opiate Detox
The withdrawal from prescription drugs, opiates and heroin are very intense and painful. The physical detox can take days or weeks to complete. Due to the pain and intense discomfort associated with opiate withdrawal, it is very difficult to get patients to the next step in the recovery process which is the utilization of the opioid antagonist naltrexone. NSS-2 the Bridge Device is a revolutionary game changer in that it completely changes the dynamics of the withdrawal process from opiates such as heroin and prescription pain medication.
The Bridge Device opiate detox West Palm Beach is just that, a bridge from a virtually painless detox to addiction treatment. It allows a comfortable transition that is non-narcotic, non-evasive and does not use any medications. There are many options after the five-day out-patient treatment including not needing Suboxone. Patients can transition to naltrexone or Vivitrol.
FDA Approved Bridge Device Technology
Again, it must be mentioned that this FDA approved device is a virtually painless procedure with minimal side effects. The safe auricular nerve field simulator has applications beyond opiate addiction treatment and several other medical patents are pending. The device sends painless neurological signals for over 98 hours in an approximately five day period.
You can only get the the the Bridge Device NSS-2 by prescription from a qualified physician, drug, and alcohol addiction treatment center, or opiate detox center. Other resources provide MAT medication assisted treatment during detoxification. One provider is located in California. You can learn more about them at opiate detox drug rehabs San Diego medication assisted treatment. However, Suboxone clinics West Palm Beach and across the nation are starting to use this device. This nifty little device attaches behind the ear and greatly reduces opiate withdrawal. It is designed to greatly reduce or eliminate the symptoms of opiate withdrawal.
How The Bridge Device NSS-2 Works
The Bridge Device cleverly provides painless electrical stimulation of the brain causing interference with pain signals. This interference reduces activity in the amygdala area of the brain. It ingeniously takes advantage of 4 important cranial nerves (5, 7, 9 and 10) can be found by the ear. These nerves are directly responsible for sending and receiving pain signals to and from the brain.
Other FDA Approved Non-opiate Options to Reduce Withdrawal
Many complain that they have to rely upon Suboxone. The specialty clinics are not quick to help individuals get off this medication. It is extremely difficult to stop using it. Lucemyra can help many individuals get off of this medication and transition to a medication-assisted treatment program like Vivitrol. You can contact Mrs. Rebecca Socol of Us World Meds at 561-675-7310 for more information. They have made this life-saving drug available for as low as a $5 co-payment.
