Anesthesia Assisted Rapid Opiate Detoxification (AAROD), sometimes called UROD or ultra rapid detox, is a safe and effective method to rapidly detoxify the body at the receptor level of active opiates. AAROD detoxifies the body of active opiates in 6 hours or less under the medical care of an anesthesiologist and skilled nurses. Staff trained and experienced in the AAROD procedure ensures the wellbeing of each patient, utilizing the state of the art technology offered at South Hampton Community Hospital.

Under the monitored care of a licensed anesthesiologists (MD), the patient is put under deep sedation for four to six hours with general anesthesia. Administration of the opiate antagonist and a formula of several medications then flush out the existing active opiates from the patient's opiate receptor sites. Two nurses specifically trained in the AAROD procedure are present at bedside throughout the entire process. The patient is then carefully monitored in an inpatient setting and typically released within 24-48, after a medical examination and a continuing care program has been arranged

AAROD has been used worldwide for the past 10 years and has shown to provide successful outcomes much higher than traditional methods of detoxification. Anesthesia Assisted Rapid Opiate Detoxification greatly reduces the length and severity of a patient's withdrawal symptoms. Patients experience major withdrawal symptoms while asleep, under controlled anesthesia.

Rapid detox does not require a long hospital stay as traditional detoxification does, sometimes lasting several days. Other dependency producing drugs such as methadone are not used to replace opiates. Patients are able to immediately enter continuing care and return to work, family, and normal activities.
