Detox in a Box

I’ve been trying to talk our CEO into a whole new marketing scheme. What do you think of Detox-In-A-Box?

See, Box 1 would be: Drop the Drug.

Box 2: Cut the Cravings

Box 3: Live Your Life

Drop the Drug is what happens when you come to TCI for an Accelerated Opiate Detox. We keep you pretty darn comfortable as the opiates leave your blood stream.

Step 2 is Cut the Cravings. The naltrexone implant provides a steady stream of blocker for about 8 weeks. When a person knows he or she cannot get an effect from an opiate, the brain begins to heal and the cravings subside.

Step 3, most importantly is Live Your Life. It’s the whole reason you consider coming for a detox. That means when you leave here, you have a plan for treatment.

If Detox In a Box seems a bit ‘flip’, that’s kind of my intention.

No one says detoxing is easy, but it’s not all that hard. Take a deep breath, take your meds, look at your thoughts; stop telling yourself how hard it’s gonna be. Start living your life.
