Alpha-Stim® Provides Excellent Alternative and Solution to Opioid Epidemic

Non-Invasive Medical Device Offers Fast, Safe & Effective Relief from Pain Without Drugs

No matter the source, people in pain need relief. When a person is experiencing pain, they are frequently prescribed opioids such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone. According to the CDC, deaths from prescription opioids have more than quadrupled since 1999, and 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose (that includes prescription opioids and heroin).

Over time, there is a reduction in the effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs as the body develops drug resistance. This leads to increased dosages and decreased pain relief.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse says that nearly 80 percent of Americans using heroin (including those in treatment) reported misusing prescription opioids prior to using heroin. With opioid addiction on the rise, more and more people are looking toward non-drug treatment options.

The Alpha-Stim® M, a handheld, non-invasive prescription medical device, is FDA cleared to treat acute, post-traumatic and chronic pain through microcurrent electrical therapy (MET).

Unlike drugs, Alpha-Stim treatments are cumulative and the body will not accommodate to this therapy, however, Alpha-Stim effectively targets receptors, activating them through frequency matching in a manner that is similar to chemical ligands. Over time, fewer and/or shorter treatments will be needed to achieve the same level of pain relief.

Featuring a patented waveform that is proven by more than 100 clinical research studies and over 35 years of use, Alpha-Stim also uses cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to treat the anxiety, insomnia, and depression that often accompany pain.

This low-level electrical therapy treats everything at once, without the negative side effects that accompany pharmaceuticals and with zero risk of addiction. As a non-addictive pain management option, Alpha-Stim is an excellent treatment solution for patients who:

  • Are addicted to, or at risk of, addiction to opiates
  • Have drug interaction risk factors
  • Have vocational restrictions on narcotic use
  • Are elderly
  • Are at risk due to compromised organ systems
  • Are medication resistant
