  14. Caplehorn et al 1996 • States that the Risk of Death after leaving rehab and jail is 5% in the first year. • An implant immediately prior to discharge from a rehab protects against overdose and relapse in the first 6-12 months on returning home.

  15. Implants Before Admission or Discharge • This is the first rehab in the world to use the principle of detox and implant insertion prior to admission so that the patient and rehab is protected from opiate cravings or use. • This is also the first rehab in the world where a new implant is inserted routinely in the week before discharge back to the community. email@drgeorgeoneil.com
