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.
