Drug detoxification

To help a person who suffers from withdrawal symptoms, you need to know why this condition occurs, what symptoms it has and what first aid it requires.



Narcotic substances (natural, semi-synthetic, synthetic, and substitution therapy drugs) affect the human nervous system. This is a poison that deprives the body of essential nutrients – vitamins and minerals, and causes disfunction of all organs. The body gets up for the fight against toxins and, if no usual dose is taken, a failure occurs. Some types of drugs cause more severe physical withdrawal symptoms, while others – psychological.



Withdrawal symptoms:


  • Strong emotional stress, anxiety, unrest
  • Tremor of the extremities, chills, convulsions
  • Frequent palpitations with chest pain
  • Loss of consciousness, dizziness
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Painful sensations in the muscles of the body and joints
  • Problems with the gastrointestinal tract, accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea
  • Hallucinations



All signs of withdrawal symptoms develop within 8-12 hours after withdrawal of the dose and, depending on the drugs taken, can last up to 2.5 weeks if without professional help.



Drug detoxification in Kyiv at MedicoMente quickly and safely removes symptoms, relieves the condition of the drug addict and prepares the patient for further treatment.




Indications for detox therapy



Narcotic substances destroy the human body and cause strong addiction. Poisonous substances that enter the body release decay products that are deposited in fat, brain, and liver tissues. Some of the toxins can accumulate and remain in the body for many years, which endangers human health and life.



Long-term drug use can provoke withdrawal even if just reducing dose, rather than completely withdrawing it. Since the harmful effects of drugs have already disrupted the work of all body systems, coping with a withdrawal syndrome is almost impossible without help. The sooner help is provided, the faster you can relief the patient’s condition and reduce the level of intoxication with poisons.



Drug detoxification in Kyiv cleanses the body of toxins, improves the functioning of internal organs, restores the metabolic process, normalizes the functioning of the nervous and immune systems.




Detoxification methods



MedicoMente uses several methods of cleansing the body of harmful substances:


  • UROD in Kyiv (ultra-rapid opioid detoxification)
  • Comprehensive cleansing program (gradual detoxification)



UBOD is performed with the use of opiate receptor blockers under medication-induced coma. This makes detoxification painless: the patient does not feel any discomfort or withdrawal symptoms.


Rapid drug detoxification in Kyiv can take from 6 hours to 3 days and is prescribed only for those who take natural opiates. The administered medicines aggravate withdrawal symptoms (convulsions, problems with the respiratory and nervous system), therefore, the doctors of MedicoMente ensure constant control over the patient’s condition during and after the procedure.


Drug use after ultra-rapid opioid detoxification can lead to respiratory arrest!



In case of the withdrawal syndrome caused by the withdrawal of synthetic drugs (including salts, amphetamines, mephedrone and other substances that affect the nervous system and the brain), sedation is used to reduce the level of aggression, arousal and inappropriate reactions.


A comprehensive cleansing program is selected individually for each patient and includes the administration of drugs such as:


  • Analgesics
  • Antispasmodics
  • Anticonvulsants
  • Psycholeptics
  • Vitamin complexes
  • Hepatoprotectors
  • Sleeping pills



An intravenous infusion of medicinal solutions and drug detoxification in Kyiv accelerates the removal of toxic substances, improves cardiac function, evens out the psycho-emotional state.
