MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH: NALTREXONE TREATMENT
Leading research in countries such as Australia, North America, Hong Kong, India and Europe have extensively tested proof that Naltrexone is effective. In spite of all previous strategies and believes for curing drug addiction, this treatment has shown to be the most effective, reliable and secure for the management of addiction to opiate type drugs, including rocks crack, heroin, morphine, pethidine, opium, codeine, methadone and suboxone. Naltrexone is also effective when treating cocaine, CHAT, ecstasy, dagga, tick, and crystal meth.
Naltrexone is extremely effective. The highly advanced polyglycol matrix or dissolvable structure functions like a slowly releasing sponge which gives the patient a steady supply of Naltrexone as it is needed. Naltrexone has a very high affinity for the MU, KAPPA and DELTA receptors in the brain and the spine. Naltrexone’s affinity to the receptors is 200 times stronger than any drug. Naltrexone is an antagonist to these receptors, therefor pushing off any drugs at the receptor site. It then forms an irreversible binding with the receptor. Pretty amazing for a substance that does not stimulate the receptor.
The effects of this binding cause the patient not to crave any drugs. There is no withdrawal in a clean patient or in a patient that has been treated with short acting agonists. Even if a patient uses drugs after the Naltrexone treatment there is no reward or high feeling. The patient realizes that the drug has no effect.
Naltrexone stabilizes the dopamine axis and therefor prevents any highs or lows, which results in a very stable patient. The absence of these mood swings help prevent anxiety, depression and there by the need to use drugs.
After treatment with Naltrexone the patient can go back to rehab for emotional help and psychotherapy. The whole procedure with the treatment makes the rehabilitation process much shorter, in most cases around three months. The healthcare worker now works with a motivated, focused and driven patient that is willing to succeed and with no back door open to go back to drugs.
The results are pretty amazing and have been published by Dr George O Neil. Dr O Neil noted that all compulsive behaviour in OCB terminated, and the patient abstains from gambling, chewing ice and even stops chewing nails. He and other doctors in the same field noted a radical change in the treatment of drug addiction. They have also used Naltrexone treatment for alcohol addiction and found that people stopped using alcohol in excessive amounts. The reason for this is that Naltrexone blocks certain neurons in the brain and prevents them from secreting huge amounts of serotonin and dopamine. This takes away all pleasure of drinking and forces patients to quit.
Naltrexone has no harmful effects and has no side effects or interactions with any medication. This means your patient is always safe.
With our rapid detox program we can now see patients immediately while still intoxicated and do the detox as well as start the Naltrexone treatment on the same day. The patient stays in the surgery for at least 3 hours after detoxification started.
The procedure for the treatment takes 15 minutes and is done in the clinic. Over the next 3 months the patient is supplied with a constant amount of Naltrexone, assuring your patient a drug free existence.
Please contact our office at least 4days before your treatment to make sure that we have Naltrexone available.
Our contact numbers are: 012 5491655, 012 5491656 or 0825770273.

|My daughter is 39 years old and has had problems with Codeine for the last 10 years She has a job that she loves and is very careful through the week but then binges on Stopayne and similar during the weekend. She also takes ivedel sleeping tablets at night. I administer these as she has trouble sleeping and needs to keep her job. She has been to rehab 4 times including to a facility in Durban that put her on Naltrexone tablets. This helped but she started hiding the tablets and abusing again. Will the implant help with her addiction. Regards Mike|

|I have been an addict since I can remember. Since the day my mother found out she is pregnant with me, she was a cocaine addict and that's how the addiction started in me. At the age of 13 years old I got involved with a "Gang" and Drugs got its way, taking over my brain and life. Cocaine was the most important need in my brain... To get my fix for the day ... 7 Years later I got my first Naltrexone implant at Dr.Gerhard Kirsten and it broke the addiction slowly but day by day... Ill recommend it to the ( Hardste Drug-kop ) any day ! I felt the change after the first day! *NB!! Best drug for a addict's brain. Naltrexone is more potent than any street drug and most important Naltrexone is good and healthy for any person who is addicted to any drug or have alcohol problems. Please call friendly and the best doctor: Dr.Gerhard Kirsten and get your anti-dote against the most evil sickness (Addiction). Regards JJ Grobler ( drug free after 7 years) Thank GOD for Naltrexone and Dr. Kirsten.|
