If you look back thru some old topics, you mya find that this was discussed before. That's OK. At any rate, most do not really view such a procedure as a great idea. I have heard of "Rapid detox" which is what the article discussed as well as "Ultra Rapid" whereby a pt is given naloxone under general anesthesia. ASAM does not support either approach. There are some problems with it, least of which is the cost. I have heard of pts spending thousands of dollars. And they end up at basically the same place. On bupe, which is where they need to be. And I don't think having to get into WDRL for one day is that big of a deal. And inductions via standard route are a piece of cake.
My two cents.
