House and his team treat a patient who had his brain split in half, now it seems like one side of his brain is causing some health/behavioral issues. House plays games with Cuddy over the night he detoxed, and those events will cause major changes. Cameron and Chase come to a decision. Written by

House is shown detoxing from Vicodin overnight and appearing to be almost completely normal just 24 hours later. However in reality detoxing from opiates takes a lot longer. It depends on the person, the type and amount of opiates they were using, how long they had been using them, and what route they were taking them through are all factors, however it would take at least 7-10 days for someone taking Vicodin orally to get past the acute stage (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, depression, anxiety, increased sensitivity to pain) of the withdrawals. While it is true that people who are I.V. opiate users have a shorter, but more intense, period of withdrawal, even they would take 3-5 days to get past the acute symptoms. See more
