Drug and Alcohol Detox has entered the 20th century with the invention of the Neuro-Stim System Bridge. The small device is no bigger than a half dollar, fits behind the ear and sends electrical feedback to the brain, blocking out the pain of a drug and alcohol detox. A person may wear the Bridge device for 5 days while going through detox. The thought of enduring withdrawal pain turns many addicts away from the path of recovery. Many people that are addicted to opiates or heroin know too well the discomfort a detox can bring. Now, an Indiana company has a new device that could help make drug and alcohol detox more doable especially for outpatient clients.. The first and only device of its kind, The Bridge has already helped many people endure the detox process, and the results are eye opening. For the past six weeks The Bridge has been offered to clients at an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center and all made it through the detox process. Finding a way for people to detox who cannot enter an inpatient medical detox facility is critical. The Indiana Company believes this is the answer to what they have been looking for. The clients who use The Bridge are getting clean in a way they can deal with it. This allows the client to focus on his recovery and changing his life around. Addiction to opioids and heroin has recently been the focus of many news outlets around the nation. With an average of 500,000 heroin users in the United States and almost 2 million abusing prescription painkillers, the need for heroin addiction treatment and opioid addiction treatment has never been higher. Once a person becomes addicted to a substance, the body can be used to regular doses of that substance and when the substance use stops, the body can produce a great deal of physical symptoms. These can include muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, shakes and vomiting. Many people experience these symptoms and revert back to drug use because they cannot handle the detox alone. That’s where the Bridge comes into play. Those who have already tried the detox device have reported their pain alleviates with 30 minutes. Trained providers implant the device and its electrodes just behind the ear, where the cranial nerves are closest to the surface. A battery-operated chip sends impulses to nerves to block the pain. The Food and Drug Administration has cleared the device for use, but that imprimatur only attests to the safety of the device, not its efficacy.
