About The Bridge Device®
The Ken Starr Wellness Group is pleased to offer The Bridge Device® to help assist our patients with opiate withdrawal. The Bridge Device is a revolutionary small neuromodulator that stays fixed behind the ear for up to 5 days while it sends electrical stimuli to the central nervous system essentially confusing the nervous system and significantly decreasing withdrawal. It acts as a TENS unit for the brain.
This device actually came out a couple of years ago. I thought it was interesting but I wasn’t convinced and it was a little pricey. Since then, several colleagues of mine have used it and attest to its effectiveness. It’s really turned out to be a simple and powerful tool.
Most people describe the feeling of having The Bridge attached as a “warmth” or ” tingling”. Overall, it seems to be very well tolerated. Occasionally a wire may become misplaced or loose but that’s easily fixed.
The device cannot get wet. That can pose a challenge for patients as it needs to stay on for 5 days.
The device in most centers is combined with medications for comfort. However, we combine it with our NAD Therapy program to achieve the smoothest and most tolerable withdrawal experience possible.
The Ken Starr Wellness Group is absolutely committed to offering the best possible withdrawal experience. Every day I meet with patients who so desperately want to stop taking opiates but the withdrawal just isn’t tolerable. I understand completely. What if you or your loved one could come off opiates comfortably and in just 2 weeks have no withdrawal or cravings? That’s what we can achieve when combining technologies like The Bridge Device with NAD Therapy and Ketamine Therapy.
