Opiate Addiction Treatment
Opioids are naturally occurring and derived from opium poppy plants, but are used in many legal and illegal drugs. Heroin is the most common example, but other types include prescription opioids, such as codeine, morphine, fentanyl, OxyContin (oxycodone), Vicodin (hydrocodone), and other prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
Recognizing Opiate Addiction
The signs and symptoms of opiate use depend on the specific drug that is being used, but some symptoms are common to most opiates. Physical indicators that someone is using opiates include:
- Constricted pupils
- Fluctuations in mood
- Doctor-shopping (trying to find a doctor that will prescribe an opiate)
- Sudden money problems
- Withdrawing socially
Get the Treatment You Deserve
When you attempt to stop using opiates, you will experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are generally not life-threatening, although they can be extremely uncomfortable. The severity and duration of these symptoms depend on factors such as your age, the amount of the drug used, and the severity of the addiction. People who develop an addiction to opiates should first go through detox and rehab, and then transition to more long-term plans. At True Recovery, we walk with you through your treatment plan and provide individual and group therapy, sober living options, and highly-skilled therapists and staff.
