Solution To Opiate Addiction Is Opiate Medical Detox At Novus
Most people reading this blog have personal knowledge about opiate addiction and dependence – either as a user, or as a relative or friend of a user.
It’s either, “I want my life back again,” or “I want him (or her) to have his (or her) life back again.” Because, when it comes to opiate addiction, nothing is more important than to simply be alive, and to live your life again without drugs.
These days, pretty much everyone knows that opiate abuse has reached epidemic levels across the country, and more people need medical opiate detox than ever. Using opiates for recreation or for medical purposes can both lead to addiction, and then comes the big decision: Do I get into detox and get my life back? Or keep on using and maybe die?
Dangers of becoming dependent or addicted to opiates
Prescription painkillers like OxyContin are basically legal heroin. A lot of people become physically dependent to prescription opiates, and even hopelessly addicted, because they didn’t know that prescription opiates – the kind we get after injuries, dentistry or surgery – contain the same ingredient that heroin addicts shoot into their veins.
Opiates are the world’s oldest known drugs of abuse. Their history of addiction and ruined lives stretches back thousands of years. Today, prescription opiates are still the most dangerous and most widely abused drugs in the world – and more dangerous than all the common street drugs combined.
Yes, they help with pain – for a while. But they also can produce feelings of euphoria, and when that wears off, we feel worse than we did before and want more. Take too much or for too long, and you will meet Mr. Addiction, who’s specialty is ruined careers, families and lives.
Side effects of opiate withdrawal
Staying addicted isn’t a sane choice, but it can seem like the only choice available. Opiate withdrawal is just too terrible: tremors, cramps, muscle and bone pain, chills, sweating, itching, insomnia, restlessness, nausea, dizzy spells, vomiting and diarrhea – and these are just some of them. Opiate withdrawal can also include depression, anxiety, panic attacks and paranoia – a real roller-coaster of emotions bordering on insanity. But worst of all, it can lead to sudden death from abnormal heart rhythm, a stroke, seizures, deadly dehydration and even suicide.
