Ultra Rapid Opiate Detoxification

UROD of opiate addicts by naloxone was developed at the University of Vienna in 1987 by Lorimer et al (Lorimer method). During general anaesthesia high doses of naloxone were given. A detoxification of heroin addict could in this way be managed in 2-5 days, the protracted withdrawal response lasted however for several weeks after. In 1994 Legarda et al. developed and modified the method by using the opiate antagonist naltrexone. In contrast to the Lorimer method where the short acting substance naloxone where given intravenously the method by Legarda used long-acting naltrexone via a nasogastric tube. After the detoxification procedure either with the Legarda method or the Lorimer method the patients were treated orally with naltrex-one for 6 to 9 months. The results has been promising and different UROD designs is now developed world-wide. Both naloxone and naltrexone are relatively pure antagonists which block the effects of opiates by competitive binding at the opioid receptors. In practice UROD can be seen as a way to achieve almost instant physical detoxification which creates a good platform for further treatment to overcome the psychological dependence and and for rehabilitation. For highly motivated heroin addicts who are committed to a treatment plan, but fear the painful normal detoxification process, UROD can be an alternative. UROD is however associated with considerable risks, serious adverse events such as inadvertent anaesthetic overdose, aspiration, or death may occur as the inherent anaesthetic risk. To avoid severe and possible life threatening withdrawal symptoms, the patient must be intubated and treated with several substances mainly influencing the functions of the vegetative nervous, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems, this must me done in a professional intensive care setting. Normal opiate detoxification is per se not fraught with a high risk of mortality and it has been argued that UROD has an unacceptable risk:benefit-ratio. On the other hand the drop out ratio in traditional detoxification is very high and the risks of continued heroin use are well-known.
