Sparrow Therapy System for Opioid Withdrawal


Overcoming opioid withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful.

For a safe, easy, and effective path through opioid detox, Plum Creek Recovery Ranch offers the Sparrow Therapy System to qualifying rehab residents.

Discreet, yet determined.

The Sparrow Therapy System is the first FDA-cleared, drug-free medical device that helps prevent or reduce opioid withdrawal symptoms. Sparrow earpieces are discreet, wearable, portable devices that work by providing mild stimulation to the nerves on and around the ear.


89% of trial participants experienced mild or no withdrawal symptoms at 60 minutes of therapy.


100% of trial participants sustained a clinically meaningful reduction of opioid withdrawal symptoms by day 2.


93% of trial participants who completed detox with the Sparrow Therapy System accepted a referral to continue treatment.


Beat The Odds, Overcome Opioid Withdrawal

How it Works

The electrical stimulation from the Sparrow Therapy System targets specific cranial nerves that activate areas of the brain, which in turn release endorphins. These endorphins then fill the empty opioid receptors in the brain.

Filling the opioid receptors with endorphins aids in preventing or reducing opioid withdrawal symptoms like insomnia, tremors, chills and sweating, bone pain, and mood swings.

  • FDA-approved
  • Drug-free
  • Non-addictive
  • Significant relief within 30 minutes
  • Used for four to eight days (length of typical detox period)
