How effective is it?
97% success rates of completion of initial detox, prior to moving onto the consolidation and relapse prevention phase with treatment of co-existing mental health or chronic pain. For opioid patients using the BONDS protocols*, internal audit data shows that 67% of patients reported abstinence at 12 months1. Prior to the use of implants from 2006 onwards, published data for opioid patients shows a 51% abstinence at 12 months for the BONDS protocols (historic data from BONDS protocol use at Detox5, not The BONDS Clinic at Broughton).
*Outcome measures recorded at a time in previous years when Dr Amal Beaini was previously providing the BONDS protocols from the Detox5 service, not The BONDS clinic at Broughton. We are very pleased to say that these BONDS protocols are now part of The BONDS Clinic at Broughton. Detox5(TM) has closed a few years ago. Abstinence data at 12 months did not include those patients who could not be contacted or lost to follow up.
