Opioid Withdrawal Protocol for ADULT inpatients

Does anyone have a protocol they are using and would be willing to share? We find that patients are admitted for other reasons (for example, deep seated infections) and we don't have a standard approach to treat their withdrawal. Sounds like an excellent resident project!
