A Detox Specialist is a professional with expertise in the field of substance abuse and addiction. The Detox Specialist will administer a medical detox program, one that addresses both the physical symptoms of withdrawal and any underlying medical issues. In many cases, the medical detox program can be conducted under the care of an experienced psychiatrist or other mental health professional. However, a Detox Specialist is also well trained in the safe and effective use of Naltrexone as part of the treatment for drug addiction. For this reason, many addiction specialists are now also trained in its use.

The medical detox program is usually very short. Usually, a person is detoxed throughout a weekend or two. During the program, the Detox Specialist will determine the appropriate dosage of Naltrexone to use in conjunction with medications and support from the patient and their family. Generally, this dose is between ten and twenty milligrams per kilogram of body weight.

Naltrexone is a prescription drug used to block the effects of heroin and other opiate drugs. Because it is a prescription drug, a doctor may also prescribe Naltrexone to patients who suffer from withdrawal symptoms when treated with medications. In rare cases, a patient may have very severe side effects from taking Naltrexone. The goal of the medical detox is to alleviate these symptoms, allowing the patient to begin receiving Naltrexone therapy and Naltrexone Replacement Therapy. This therapy is used in conjunction with counseling and/or alcohol abuse treatment.

One of the most common problems associated with this type of treatment is an extremely high tolerance for drugs. The Detox Specialist must determine that a patient can return to their regular activities of daily living. This involves making many very difficult decisions. For example, if someone is addicted to narcotics, they probably will not quit using this drug without help. Therefore, the medical detox program must ensure that the patient can cut off the supply of heroin that is controlling their life.
