Case Study: Opioid Detox of an Executive in the Privacy of the Family Home

Successful Opioid Detox for an Executive in the Privacy of Home

Gary is a 40-year-old Wall Street broker from New York, who sought the assistance of our Executive Home Detox program for his heroin addiction. Gary had been struggling with heroin use for the past three years, and the repercussions were threatening to cost him his family and career. Seeking both recovery and privacy, Gary reached out to us multiple times.

Understanding the importance of maintaining confidentiality, Gary opted for an opiate detox program within the comfort of his own home. To ensure uninterrupted focus on his recovery, he arranged for his wife and son to go on a trip during the medical detox period. Radius collaborated with a Suboxone certified physician who would oversee the private detox process. Together, Gary and the live-in EHD Nurse visited the consulting physician to discuss the treatment plan. A seven-day Suboxone detox was meticulously designed and put into action, aligning with ASAM criteria and utilizing the Clinical Opiate Withdrawal Scale (COWS) for Suboxone induction.

To maximize comfort and convenience, the Suboxone detox was initiated on a Friday, allowing for a full weekend for induction and subsequent weaning off Suboxone. On Monday, Gary was able to spend four hours at work, with the nurse providing geographically close support in case assistance was needed. As the days progressed, Gary gradually increased his work hours and, by the end of the week, he was working his normal schedule, completely free from Suboxone and heroin.

To ensure a sustained recovery, an aftercare plan was developed in collaboration with Gary. This comprehensive plan included regular therapy sessions, participation in a support group, a nutritionist that provided weekly meel delivery, and appropriate medication to support his ongoing recovery journey.

Today, Gary and his family report significant progress and positive outcomes. He has regained his productivity at work, and most importantly, he is no longer at risk of losing his beloved wife and son. Through our tailored and compassionate approach, we are dedicated to empowering individuals like Gary, guiding them toward lasting recovery while respecting their privacy and personal journey.
