Our Medical & Naturopathic Detox Program
The River Source addiction detoxification is typically a 5-10-day process. With our unique integrative approach, using both medical and naturopathic treatments, your detox pain will be minimal. Most programs offer their patients minimal medical treatment and supervision during the initial withdrawal process. Our addiction detox program not only offers ongoing supervision, but also the expertise of our Licensed Physician and Licensed Therapist who specialize in addictive medicine.
Combining Medical and Naturopathic Detox Treatment
Our Licensed Doctors support our patients by determining and prescribing the most medically comfortable addiction detoxification protocol. An example of our unique protocol for Opiates is for the first 12 to 24 hours benzos such as Klonopin / Clonazepam; muscle relaxers (parafonforte cyclobenzoprin or soma; for nausea phenegren or alternative; for sleep trazadone or amitriptyline; after 12 to 24 hours; Suboxone for 3-5 days, homeopathic remedies, nutritional IV (high magnesium, high b’s and c’s, complex b 5, 6, and 12’s, calcium, and zinc etc) and oral vitamin therapy, dry sauna, acupuncture, physical manipulation (back adjustment), massage therapy, b-12 shots, meditation, light exercise, counseling 1 on 1 and group therapy to help with aftercare plan. By the end of the detox you will not be on any of the drugs. Yes it really works! See the article by Dr. David Arneson and Dr. Liz Kim on how this works featured in the news. Simultaneously, our substance abuse detox offers inpatient treatment, medical supervision (under the care of a naturopathic physician and medical doctor), and nutritional iv therapy. We also provide individual counseling and group therapy. Our Sauna Detox – helps to get the “bad stuff” out of your body and the nutritional IV therapy puts the “good stuff” back into your body. That’s why our combination of Sauna Detox and Nutritional IV Therapy is a winning combination that makes sense and works.
The River Source is a holistic substance abuse treatment program, which simply means we focus on all aspects of recovery – mind, body and spirit. The therapist supports our patient by determining any underlying psychiatric/psychological factors that contribute to the patient’s addiction (ex. Dual Diagnosis).
