Learn More About Opiate Detox

Learn more about detoxification from opiates

Heroin and prescription painkillers, such as OxyContin and Vicodin, are all considered opioid substances. When these substances are abused, they can cause the development of an addiction that can completely ravage one’s life. From one’s social, work, and family life, an opioid addiction can destroy all areas of one’s existence as it is one of the most powerful and potentially fatal forms of chemical dependency.

Provided the harm that an addiction to opioids can cause in one’s life, treatment is almost always needed in order to end the deadly cycle of this type of addiction. For those who do not receive effective treatment, the effects that can result when staying addicted to opioids can include permanent damage to one’s physical and mental health, and even death as a result of overdose. Considering these consequences, it is imperative to consider treatment that includes both therapeutic interventions and detoxification, or detox. These services work to address the physical aspects of addiction in the beginning stages of one’s recovery, and can also help individuals set a foundation to live a life free of opioid abuse.

What Happens During Withdrawal

Learn more about what happens during withdrawal from opiates

Opioid withdrawal is said to be one of the most painful forms of drug withdrawal known today. When an individual has abused opioids like heroin and prescription painkillers to the point where his or her body has grown accustomed to the presence of them, withdrawal symptoms are likely to develop once the individual is no longer consuming opioids.

Withdrawing from opioids can include bodily aches and pains, powerful cravings for continued opioid abuse, and feeling unwell. Because these symptoms can be highly disruptive and extremely painful, many individuals relapse and begin using opioids once more. However, if an individual participates in care that includes detox, not only can he or she experience a less painful process of withdrawal, but he or she can also achieve the skills needed to keep moving on the path towards recovery.

Benefits of Detox

Learn more about the benefits of detox from opiates

When someone does not receive treatment for an addiction to opioids, or if an individual does not engage himself or herself in detox services for this type of chemical dependency issue, the results can be catastrophic. For those who stay physically dependent on opioids, one or more relapses can occur, which can continually prevent one from ending the cycle of addiction. However, those who do engage in detox services will be afforded a better chance at being able to effectively prevent relapse and continue to live happy, healthy lives.

Engaging in a detox program allows one to receive the improved health and peace of mind required to understand how and why he or she developed an addiction to opioids. With these two benefits, an individual is able to fully participate in programming, which can help to establish the confidence and skills needed to abstain from opioids for good.
