The Bridge for Detox
Ask your doctor about their experience with the
Bridge Device for Detox
The Bridge provides relief quickly, in as little as 20-minutes, to individuals that are currently experiencing opioid withdrawal. The device is non-invasive with no reported side effects. The Bridge is a small electrical nerve stimulator that fits comfortably behind the ear. While the device is non-invasive, it must be placed by a healthcare professional because it requires a prescription. The application of the device is not complicated. It requires a simple cleaning of the area, and then the device is placed on the skin like a sticker.
Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms
Opioid withdrawal symptoms can start in as little as 8 hours and can last up to 4 weeks, depending on the type of opiate. The cravings for more heroin, fentanyl, or other opiate is a false hope for many going through detox. While it may temporarily relieve pain and fear, it is only a matter of time before the pain and fear return. When the cravings defeat the motivation to get clean because of the pain, the Bridge can offer those addicted to opiates hope by reducing the pain during withdrawal.
The Bridge will provide relief for up to five days. It is important to place the device after experiencing significant withdrawal symptoms as it will minimize the effectiveness of the device. In other words, make sure you or your loved one is experiencing significant withdrawal symptoms before the doctor places the device.

How does the NSS-2 Bridge device work?
The Bridge uses neuromodulation, which means it alters nerve activity. The device will send gentle electrical impulses through the wires that are placed around the ear to stimulate the nerves. Stimulating the nerves will communicate with the brain and will result in a reduction of withdrawal symptoms.
The Bridge is unique because it provides continuous pain reduction for 5 days, which can provide a level of comfort to those battling the fear of detox. The traditional approach to relieve pain during detox is to use other prescription drugs that are only effective for a few hours at a time.
