Advanced Rapid Detox at Pontiac General Hospital

Advanced Rapid Detox at Pontiac General Hospital Pontiac Michigan

Dr. Julia Aharonov has partnered with Pontiac General Hospital where she performs Advanced Detox Under Sedation which safely removes heroin, pain medications, Suboxone® and Methadone. Patients are placed under IV sedation with one-on-one medical monitoring in the hospital. Because the patients sleep through their withdrawals, they do not have the intense pain that is associated with most cold turkey withdrawals. This allows the patient to detox without the intense pain that is associated with most drug withdrawals.

ABOUT 3-DAY ADVANCED RAPID DETOX UNDER SEDATION

A division of Pontiac General Hospital, Advance Rapid Detox is located in Pontiac, Mich. The treatment center offers three day sedation assisted opiate detox.

According to the center’s website, Advanced Rapid Detox’s mission “is to provide superior drug addiction recovery services and aftercare for people afflicted with opiate addiction.”

Clients spend the day in their hospital suites on Wednesday with a friend or family member. On Thursday mornings, individuals have an exam then are discharged.

Advance Rapid Detox’s procedure entails hydrating the body, replenishing vitamins, and correcting electrolyte deficiencies. The center specializes in sedation assisted rapid detox for all opiates, however, the center can help clients who are dependent on benzodiazepines.

Advanced Rapid Detox only treats seven clients per week.

  • The only regret that I have is that I didn't find ARD years ago. They treated me with such respect and understanding in the midst of a crisis. The whole team were great to me and my mom. Even almost a year after the procedure, my life has changed for the better in every way. It's crazy to think how obsessed I was with heroin and now it just isn't (and won't be) part of my life. Thank you ARD and God Bless you all.

  • It doesn't work. They basically detox with a Vivitrol shot. I was vomiting with diarrhea and shakes for 10 days after and had to be hospitalized because I was s dehydrated. Also it was during a heat way and they had me in a room with no air-conditioning.
    They are the warmest most attentive medical staff I have ever dealt with in my entire life and I for cancer for 8 years with my wife there is nothing that you long for they are at your bedside 24/7 they saved my life save yours do not attempt to do this right now patient basis this is not an outpatient procedure you must be in the hospital can find for the 3 days so that they can watch over you this is a very very hard thing to do but you don't feel it all you're going to feel is tired a little bit weak when it's all said and done it's worth it it's worth it I live in breathe I gave myself another two weeks I think I would have been dead

  • I wish we did better research - we chose this treatment to save some money for my cousin who was addicted to opiates but we quickly learned this is not the kind of thing to save money on. The facility was below par and my cousin, who was not ready to leave, started using again soon after treatment. We do not recommend Pontiac General for rapid opiate detox.

  • My mother called ARD when she found out I was using opiates. She was in tears and got such great information and compassion from the lady who answered the phone. When I spoke with her, she treated me with great respect. I had called other places but I was grossed out that they wanted me to recover in a hotel. Once we got to Michigan a nice driver picked us up and brought us to the hospital which was very clean. The intake process was very organized and the nurses and doctors were very informative and gave me and my mother a good overview of what to expect in the process. The detox under sedation is the best thing I could have done to get clean quickly. Because of the shot I have no cravings and I like that the staff keeps in touch with me and my mom. If it weren't for ARD, I would be dead. It's been the best year of my life because I decided to go to ARD.

  • Advanced Rapid Detox literally changed my life in 3 days! Without trying to sound like a commercial I'll explain that I'm a 36-year-old male that was on opiates and methadone for over 14 years. I had no drive in life, everything was dull and I felt helpless, hopeless and lost. It's been one week ago today when ARD did the procedure and I have been feeling things that I never could have imagined. Colors seem brighter and more vivid, music even sounds better and gives me chills, my anxiety and stress about having to go to the clinic every day are now gone. I have accomplished more things this past week than I have in the past few years. Making beneficial appointments for myself, fixing things that I've put off to the side for months at a time, just spending time with my loved ones outside enjoying life once again. Everyone who sees me immediately notices a glow that they haven't seen before, it's completely amazing! I can't begin to explain how appreciative I am of the ALL the staff there at ARD. Starting with the driver that picked me up at the airport and drove me and my wife to the hospital, to everyone.. You are all saving lives! I will be sure to recommend Advanced Rapid Detox at Pontiac hospital in Michigan to anyone I know who is suffering and no longer wants to feel the weight from the chains of addiction. I truly feel blessed! Thank you thank you thank you.<3

  • Do not use this place if you have seious orthopedic injuries. They lied to me and told me my lower back pain wiuld go away. Not once did they look at my medical records. The are for heroin suboxon addicts and such. But do fleeced me out of 10,000 dollars when i will be back on legit pain meds as soon as i can. FO NOT TRUST THEM.
    Dear H, Please keep in mind that a medical practice can only assess a patients condition(s) if the patient gives accurate information about their past and present medical history, and know one can know how a patient's pain level will be once off opiates- but we continue to be supportive in working with your regular physical to come up with non-opiate options. Additionally, we don't charge $10,000 for I am not even sure you are rating the correct facility. Either way, I am sorry to hear you are back on opiates as there are so many excellent choices other than the medication that likely brought you great distress.

  • Advanced rapid detox is the most unbelievable place to go for treatment if you want to get your life back. From the first phone call to the ride back to the airport, it was nothing but professional but yet, they treat you like family. Being on pain medication from multiple back surgeries for over 10 years, ARD, gave me my life back in the matter of a week. It's been 10 weeks since I've been there and doing great. I would recommend ARD to anyone who wants to get their life back on track, or if you have a loved one, a friend, or just anyone who needs help. Please call ARD, they are miracle workers. ARD is very thorough through every aspect and is a strength in itself.

  • The hospital was bellow our expectations. We tried to save a few dollars going there and thank god there was no emergencies. It was ok, but we would not go back. We thought about walking away but decided to proceed and not delay treatment. But there was definitely a concern towards facility.

  • It is approximately 6 weeks since I came to your facility for the ARD procedure and I cannot begin to express the joy and happiness in my life presently because I never seriously believed that I could have gotten back my life free of pills. My life has taken on new meaning and purpose since ARD. My journey started with a phone call, who I believe is the spine of this phenomenal team. My first meeting with them set the stage for the rest of my life. I was extremely impressed with the level of respect and dignity shown to me and my spouse, who accompanied me to your facility. I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the team. Your love and support during my stay at the hospital was beyond the call of duty and expectations. The team at ARD are saving lifes everyday and I would highly recommend this procedure to everyone who would like to take their life away from any addiction. I am very impressed with the support I continue to receive after I returned to my home. The team is really just a phone call away. I have the utmost respect for the entire team and my prayer is that you all continue to save lives because no words will ever be sufficient or appropriate to describe the difference you are making in helping to change the course of so many lives. Your team goes beyond the call of duty and that is what sets you apart from anyone else. I will end this review by saying that I love you all very much and would make sure that I visit your facility whenever I have the opportunity to be in the area.
    The detox changed my life...I am in no more pain I can’t believe it but it’s true...The team is great and they will be there for all of your needs Thanks again god bless

Also, we are the only Rapid Opiate Detox facility in the country that performs all 3 days in a hospital. It would be great if we were in all 50 states.
