Our daughter went through rapid detox about 4 months ago. She was addicted to opiates after pain suffered in a car accident over 2 years ago. Through counseling, she finally decided that she "wanted to get her life back." We did not know that she was addicted, but we knew that she was in constant pain, and she said it was taking more and more pills to keep the pain away. She had become totally dependent on the drugs, had tried to get off of them cold turkey & failed several times.
Our daughter found out about rapid detox on the internet. We were nervous about the procedure and had never heard about it before. I went with her to Las Vegas to be her support system.
When we arrived in Las Vegas we were met at the airport by a psychologist, Dr. Rendon, who works with patients regarding all of the mental ramifications of addiction. On the trip to the clinic he filled us in on all that we could expect the next few days. I began to relax, feeling that my daughter would be in good hands. Then we met Dr. Yee, who does the detox procedure. We discovered that he was a VERY professional, board certified, well qualified anesthesiologist who does anesthesiology for heart surgeries when not in the detox clinic. Dr. Yee is also a very good teacher. He discusses all of the steps that lead to addiction & how rapid detox works before the patient actually goes through it.
During the procedure, our daughter was under sedation and asleep. As her mother I was able to stay with her the whole time. Dr. Yee explained all that was taking place and what to expect next. He explained all of the numbers on the myriad of monitors and what they meant, and what was going on in my daughter's body & brain during the process. Dr. Yee was at the bedside during the total 8 hour procedure along with 1-3 other staff members. They were all very kind & compassionate in their care!
After the 8 hour detox, after our daughter was awake again, two of Dr. Yee's staff took us to our room & stayed with us for 48 hours. They became almost like family members. They made sure that she was getting enough exercise, was eating correctly and they monitored all of her emotional and physical reactions during that time. They also helped with medications that eased her body during the adjustment to being drug free. They were very knowledgeable of all that she was experiencing & knew exactly what she needed at all times. They were encouraging and treated her with great dignity & compassion.
Our daughter went back to work just a couple of days after we got home. She had a few side effects for a short time, but with two, non addictive medications and some things to help with weakness, etc. it was only a short time and she was feeling totally normal again. In her words, she is totally free of the addiction and "has her life back again!!!" With the job she holds she would have not been able to go through a long protracted time of withdrawal. She could have been terminated from her job. This was so much more manageable and humane than the longer method of cold turkey detox. Our family is VERY thankful to Dr. Yee and his wonderful & professional team at Rapid Detox. This is now 4 months later.......
Thank you Dr. Yee, Ben & Cathy Celi & Dr. Rendon!! We appreciate you so much!!

Subject: Letter of Appreciation for Dr. Yee
If you’re reading my testimonial; you probably have been doing a lot of searching on the internet looking for a way to get off of your narcotic of choice. I went from website to chat rooms to this or that…I’ve ended up at Dr. Yee’s sight for a variety of reasons. I am a “middle-age” woman (did I say that)...
