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.
Dr. Aharonov has practiced extensively in both hospital and outpatient facilities and has vast experience in all aspects of general, trauma, orthopedic, thoracic, vascular, obstetric, ocular, plastic, regional, and outpatient anesthesia. Dr. Aharonov has been involved in addiction medicine, particularly rapid detox under sedation, since 2007. She has investigated, perfected and created rapid detox protocols unique to Advanced Rapid Detox. She serves as an expert on the Substance Addiction forum on MedHelp.org and blogs extensively about her advice and experiences.
