Opioid withdrawal is a painful process and for some can even turn into addiction. Many people go to rehab to completely recover from their withdrawal and addiction. Many times they are given an opioid as prescribed by a doctor to recover from surgery, such as codeine, morphine, or Vicoden. These are very serious drugs, but are sometimes needed in life or death situations or during the very painful healing process. Symptoms of withdrawal may depend on the drug itself, which include racing heart, anxiety, diarrhea, chills, high blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, increased body temperature, and/or muscle and bone pain. Please contact American Addiction Centers if you or a loved one is in pain from opioid withdrawal symptoms.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used to relieve pain from situations like surgeries, post radiation effects, traumatic brain injuries, diabetic foot, and many more. Please see our list here FDA Approved Conditions for HBOT • Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery, Inc of FDA approved conditions that your insurance can cover if you choose HBOT.
Drug rehab and recovery with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can ease the process and improve quality of life for so many patients. When oxygen is saturated within the body, it is able to naturally increase hyperoxia, or oxygen levels, in tissues. Increased oxygen reduces cerebral edema and makes the blood cells stronger, more able to carry out their healing processes efficiently. Pain and inflammation is also reduced, since white blood cells are able to remove cell debris and toxins more efficiently, thus improving healing time. HBOT helps the patient detox, so there is less toxicity load on the body.
Many patients report pain reduction with HBOT. A trial was done on individuals who had terrible opioid withdrawal symptoms, and they tried HBOT to assist in tapering off the drug. According to the study, “Opioid withdrawal symptoms were reduced after Day 1 of HBOT by twice as much, on average, compared with the control condition. Satisfaction surveys found participants were generally satisfied with ease and comfort of the treatment.” The full study is here Hyperbaric Oxygen to Assist Adults With Opioid Use Disorder in Reducing Methadone Dose.
Lynn D’s experience from Santa Rosa CA. “I am a prominent Real Estate agent in Sonoma County, after my hip replacement I was in tremendous pain. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery in San Rafael, not only helped me heal so much faster than I did with my first hip replacement, but it also helped me get off the pain medications so that I could get back to work quicker. I felt my body detoxing off the anesthesia and opioids and felt that cloud LIFT so my cognitive function came back and I never looked back. Thank you Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery and your amazing team for all of your help and loving care! A True healing oasis.”
A patient of Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC, Claudia G, noticed a significant decrease in pain and swelling after teeth removal surgery.

Healing the body with oxygen from medical grade hyperbaric chambers is a painless, non-invasive, relaxing treatment with numerous benefits.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (or HBOT) increases and improves bone regeneration. Those that have suffered sports injuries, as well as post radiation complications that affect the bone can receive and benefit from HBOT.
100% medical grade oxygen under slight pressure in a hyperbaric chamber promotes bone healing, due to the increased levels of oxygen in blood cells. On an injured bone, HBOT improves the healing process by increasing collagen formation and increasing the activity of the osteoclast and osteoblast of the bone matrix. Old cells die off, within the bone, and new bone cells will form. HBOT facilitates bone regeneration in many circumstances. Here https://bit.ly/3xbAT2g explains how HBOT can assist in bone healing and regeneration.
In bones, fibroblasts are located in connective tissue. These secrete collagen proteins. When they are given more oxygen, collagen production increases, and healing can occur. If there is bone death, for instance after radiation therapy, increased oxygen supply from a hyperbaric chamber will be able to increase blood supply to the damaged tissue and bone, especially in conjunction with bone grafting treatments.
Other cells like osteoblasts and osteoclasts are involved in bone repair. These types of cells work together to heal the bone tissue. It has been observed that when HBOT is applied, the osteoblast formation was seen to increase in patients. Then, the affect on osteoclasts increase as well. The osteoclasts are responsible for bone reabsorption. These work together in bone repair. The Science page discusses this process further on our site: https://hyperbaricoxygentherapy.com/patient-info#5
One of our bone healing patients, Dorina Vaccaroni, broke her tibia in a cycling race. As an athlete, she was disappointed that she might have to stop working for 2 months to let it heal. She heard that hyperbaric therapy is good for bones, so she found us online. She came to Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC. After about 10 days, she went back to her doctor to see if she needed an X-ray, and it was no longer needed. She was incredibly grateful! Here’s the full testimonial: https://bit.ly/3nNNXba
HBOT has real world applications. Supplying oxygen to non-healing wounds, meaning any injury that does not heal correctly or at all, can begin the healing process to the wound at the cellular level. Patients enjoy a relaxing experience in their chamber during the treatment process. Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC is a woman-owned, award-winning hyperbaric oxygen clinic. Contact us for more information, and visit our socials on Facebook and Instagram, located at the top of the page.
The pain relief benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) have been proven by thorough research over the years. When cells are being given a greater oxygen supply, inflammation is reduced, stem cell production is increased 8 fold, and nerve endings are repaired so the healing can become more efficient. Thus, the patient’s pain from the injury decreases over time as they heal.
One simply cannot go to any oxygen chamber for these pain reducing benefits. A patient needs to go to a medical grade hyperbaric facility operated by licensed medical professionals that is well maintained to the highest standards. The chambers must use medical grade oxygen and be at proven pressures so the patient can receive the best benefits from the medical grade hard chambers. If these systems are in place, the FDA approves Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for certain conditions.
The science of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been around for 350 years. HBOT has been proven to decrease pain in many different types of pain syndromes, such as those caused by injury, non-healing wounds, burns, sonic injuries, radiation damage, infection injury and much more. According to a pilot study, https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32947434/, HBOT significantly reduced pain in Rheumatoid Arthritis patients. Range of motion also increases when inflammation is lowered. Along with RA pain, HBOT is being researched to help with other conditions like lupus, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. HBOT at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC can improve Quality of Life for many patients.
As with RA, HBOT is being considered for those suffering from Lyme Disease. Not only does the increased oxygen kill the bacteria, but HBOT also helps the patients reduce their suffering from the disease as well, improving their quality of life. Gayle L was a patient at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC, and discovered she had Lyme Disease. “When I came in for my first treatment and met the rest of the team- I knew I was going to be okay and well taken care of no matter who was in the driver’s seat!…I thought for a few days that I had a temperature because I just felt “warm” inside. I realized I hadn’t felt what it felt like for my immune system and body to be working- I am feeling what “normal” feels like.” Gayle described that she began to feel much better after session 30. Talk to your doctor or to one of our physicians to see if your condition could benefit from HBOT, and our team can answer your questions on how it can reduce your inflammation and aid in the healing process.
The sooner the patient discovers HBOT, the faster healing can occur, and pain cycles can be improved or stopped all together. You have the ability to help others alleviate suffering right now, share this information and change lives.
Recovery is part of the journey to good health, and it is imperative that people look at health differently. At Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC, we believe that taking care of yourself, healing yourself back to optimum health, helps heal the world. Mark Nepo said, “When we heal ourselves, we heal the world.” When we are at our best, we can participate in our communities and live life to the fullest. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps heal many conditions approved by the FDA such as non-healing wounds, exceptional blood anemia, and carbon monoxide poisoning. This month of September we will be focusing on how hyperbaric therapy can benefit you and your loved ones.
Hyperbaric therapy helps to heal the wound from the inside out, as the patient breathes 100% Medical Grade oxygen from the hyperbaric chamber under slight pressure. HBOT reduces swelling from the wound, and heals the surrounding tissue. Injuries need oxygen to heal, and with a medical grade chamber, hyperbaric therapy is essential for healing many conditions. Depending on the issue, a patient will need several treatments.
Staff at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC will be present at all times, monitoring the session. The staff is expertly trained in the medical oxygen chambers, to keep you safe and to give appropriate feedback for your sessions. Gina Kitania stated that “I had the great good fortune to encounter Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery because I had orthopedic issues…ever since then, my recovery times from exertion or exercise are so much shorter.” She recommends her pre and post op patients to get hyperbaric recovery treatments. HBOT is a safe and effective way to get yourself back on your feet to complete recovery.
The medical grade chambers heal wounds faster when the patient breathes 100% Medical Grade Oxygen, instead of any percentage less than that in nonmedical chambers. Many people use hyperbaric chambers, such as scuba divers, fire fighters, athletes, CEO’s and celebrities . People who need to recover from surgery can do so by reducing swelling and pain, giving oxygen to the whole body, which will help the surgery site recover.
Hyperbaric therapy is sometimes the last piece in the puzzle for a person with chronic conditions to begin a life of healing. When a person heals from old wounds, a lingering infection, or detoxes from a toxic exposure, physically, they can move forward in life. WIthout chronic pain, a person can live life to the fullest and then help those around them better than ever before.
There are numerous benefits to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, including collagen production to help skin conditions. HBOT can help with cell repair, and skin cell damage. Hyperbaric therapy has been called “the fountain of youth” with good reason. Oxygen can benefit stem cells by doubling your stem cell production with one hyperbaric session and increasing your stem cell production 8-FOLD with 20 consecutive sessions. This action is also motivating the bone marrow to stimulate the osteoclasts and osteoblasts in the bone to heal fractures more completely and grow new bone stronger.
At Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC we encourage patients to ask questions on what we can do for them. You can send us an email or give a phone call and a knowledgeable staff member will help you begin your journey. Making the commitment to hyperbaric therapy is committing to improving your quality of life. And remember, when you heal yourself, you also heal the world.
