Opioid Addiction Treatment

Navigating Recovery Together: Comprehensive Treatment for Opioid Addiction

Data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that 5.3 million people in the United States struggle with opioid use disorder. The good news is, with focused opioid addiction treatment at experienced centers like 360 Integrated Recovery Center, you can conquer your opioid addiction and achieve enduring recovery.

Understanding Opioid Addiction

“Opioids” is a term that encompasses a group of addictive drugs that work on the body’s opioid receptors. This group includes both prescription drugs, such as OxyContin, Vicodin, codeine, and morphine, and illicit substances, such as heroin, fentanyl, and opium.
All these substances share a common feature: they influence users in a way that often makes it challenging to cease or reduce opioid use independently. Opioids activate receptors in the brain and body, producing effects like:

• A sense of euphoria and relaxation
• Relief from severe pain
• Slowed breathing and heart rate

However, the positive effects associated with opioids come with a significant downside, as individuals can quickly move from medical or recreational use to developing opioid dependence and addiction.

How to know if you have Opioid Addiction: Key Indicators

When a person develops an opioid use disorder, they begin to lose control over their opioid consumption. The lasting brain changes that opioid addiction causes can have severe repercussions. Areas of the brain associated with reward, decision-making, and willpower all undergo structural changes due to substance abuse, making it extremely challenging to stop using opioids.

Opioid addiction is not a choice. The effects of opioid dependence and addiction take the ability to stop out of the hands of the person living with an addiction.
Symptoms Of Opioid Use Disorders

Opioid addiction also has several other consequential effects. Substance use disorders can affect your physical health, mental health, occupation, and relationships. Common symptoms of opioid addiction include:

• Loss of interest in significant hobbies or activities
• Invasive and unwanted opioid cravings
• Powerful physical withdrawal symptoms when opioid use abruptly stops
• Growing tolerance, meaning more opioids need to be used to achieve the desired effect
• Continued opioid use despite increasing consequences

All these symptoms contribute to the difficulty of overcoming opioid addiction. However, there is hope; targeted treatment for opioid addiction at a professional substance use treatment center can help alleviate these symptoms and begin individuals’ journey to recovery.

Navigating Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms: A Guided Overview

Opioid withdrawal can cause a range of symptoms as the body and brain adjust to the absence of the drug. The severity of these symptoms can vary depending on how long someone has been using opioids, how much they have been using, their overall health, and individual factors.

Here are some common symptoms of opioid withdrawal:

  • Agitation and anxiety: Individuals may become extremely restless and anxious as the drug leaves their system.
  • Muscle aches and pains: Discomfort or pain in the muscles can occur.
  • Insomnia: Difficulty sleeping is a common symptom.
  • Sweating: Individuals may sweat excessively, even in cool conditions.
  • Racing heart: The heart rate may speed up.
  • Hypertension: High blood pressure can be a symptom of opioid withdrawal.
  • Fever: Elevated body temperature is possible during withdrawal.
  • Nausea and vomiting: These symptoms can be severe and may lead to dehydration if not properly managed.
  • Abdominal cramping and diarrhea: These gastrointestinal symptoms are common during withdrawal.
  • Goosebumps: This is a physical response to withdrawal, sometimes referred to as “cold turkey.”
  • Strong cravings for opioids: The brain’s dependence on the drug can lead to intense cravings.

Withdrawal from opioids can be extremely uncomfortable and potentially dangerous, especially without proper medical supervision. Therefore, it’s important that anyone attempting to stop using opioids seek professional help from treatment centers like 360 Integrated Recovery. Treatments often include medications to help manage withdrawal symptoms and counseling or therapy to address addiction issues.
