Been searching the interwebs for Rapid Detox and finding most dont list prices the few I did find they ranged between $8000-$20,000. Kinda wide spectrum of prices. I have some air miles saved up so I could fly anywhere in the U.S., but really would like to find a affordable one in Texas....

Thank in advance...

$8,000-$12,000 can pay for a LOT of burenorphine as well as office visits for a prescribing Dr. As opposed to what you are suggesting, opioid replacement therapy is an evidence based approach for the chronic treatment of a chronic disease - addiction. Then again, some people who control their restless leg by taking any number of medications don't like the idea of being 'hooked on them pills,' or ''those damn side effects' (Yeah, remember WHY you started taking the med to begin with?!? Remember the side effects tat came with the underlying condition???!) Some of these people would rather find a doctor to put them under anesthesia and experimentally cut off tendons in their legs even though RLS is a neurological problem. There is NO free lunch with opioid addiction....Buprenorphine is the safest option and the best treatment modality (acknowledging methadone her too) with 25 years of data that shows overall success in so many areas. BTW I've personally known someone who died in a rapid-detox scenario; he was a youngerish, fairly naive kid and his parents bullied him to endure Rapid Detox to 'get off that goddamn methadone, it's just a crutch.'

I can let you know where I went. It's no magic cure but if you are like me and couldn't stop on your own or taper then....you can check out rapiddrugdetox.com that's where I went. And so far I'm off sub since 6 aug 12. And not currently on anything and it's freakin great. Also I posted my experience under other programs on this forum. Try and bear with it if you do read it. I was out of my mind from the detox meds. Btw it was 8300 I think plus flight your hotel is included.
