Substance Abuse Treatment

Kinds of Opiates

There are multiple forms of opiates available in Lakewood and are primarily extracted from poppies which are prevalent in Middle Eastern and South Asian countries. These include opium, morphine, heroin, codeine and methadone. OxyContin and Dilaudid are other less extreme forms of the drug.

Opium addiction is extremely detrimental to the health of an individual and requires long term treatment. The addict typically has to go through a detoxification process to allow the drug to completely flush out of the bloodstream. Treatments may include opioid replacement which includes the use of medication to reduce the effects of opiates and reduce dependency on them.

Detox programs are not as effective as other forms of treatments for prescription drug addicts. Large doses of opioid blocking drugs are given to the patient to accelerate the process of withdrawal. Detox diminishes the physical effects of drug addiction, but experts say psychological and social factors are the main reasons an addict goes back to using. Cravings can be hard to resist and most people who go through detox are most likely to relapse when they are struggling with prescription drug abuse.

Other inpatient and outpatient programs exist that are specially designed to treat prescription drug abuse. To locate a facility immediately, contact a rehab center right now.

Nerve Damage With Opiate Use

Nerve damage in the brain can happen with prolonged opiate usage. These nerves are responsible for producing the bodys natural pain killers. As a result the body stops responding to any kind of pain experienced and hence the user becomes dependent on an external source of pain reliever which is opiates. Naturally this then results in opiate addiction.
