This is a specialized surgical operative implant treatment for alcohol or drug addiction with successful results.
A small surgical procedure is done on the patient who is addicted to alcohol or drugs where an implant is kept in the body which will release the drug for a certain period. An implant produces sensitivity to alcohol or drugs that results in a highly unpleasant reaction and may be life-threatening sometimes when the patient under treatment ingests even small amounts of alcohol. During our 7-10 days of treatment, patients work toward achieving physical and mental recovery, which will allow them to return to their daily lives without feeling the urge to consume alcohol ever again.
patients have to undergo the entire treatment, which includes detoxification, physical recovery, psycho-stabilization, and other procedures.
The length of stay in this process is only 10 days. After the admission of the alcoholic patient, a medical examination is done by a qualified doctor, and some lab investigations are advised. In the first phase patient goes through detoxification for one week depending upon withdrawal symptoms. After withdrawal management assessment of the patient is done with psychological counseling. If he is physically and mentally fit then only he will be posted for the surgery with consent. The procedure is done in the operation theatre with the help of our anesthetic and surgeon team. The implant is inserted in the lower abdomen and the wound is sutured with dressings. The stitches of the wound are removed after 7 days and the patient is fit to work after one week.
