Why Choose a Residential Detox for Opiates?
When you begin your path to recovery from opiate addiction, the first few days are critical to your success. You've experienced the effects of withdrawal — of not having the drug in your system — and habitual use has conditioned you to believe that avoiding those effects is more important than anything. That's why many people who would like to quit their habit relapse almost before they get started.
A residential (inpatient) detox program helps get you through those first critical days without relapse so you can get on with your successful, long-term recovery.
LyfeBack can recommend a highly respected opiate detox facility and get you admitted the same day you call us. Our admissions coordinators are ready for your call 24/7.
Let us answer your questions about opiate detox. Call day or night.:
Morphine has been an important and beneficial drug throughout history. One of the most successful painkillers ever discovered, morphine has a low risk of dependence as long as a physician's instructions are followed. But morphine's pleasant effects make it attractive for recreational use, and abusers soon develop a tolerance for it, leading to larger doses — and significant unpleasant effects when use is cut off. Residential detox can help you manage those effects with the help of medical professionals in a calm, comfortable environment.
Heroin (diamorphine) detox
Effects of heroin withdrawal can be more unpleasant than many other drugs, and can include intense craving, muscle aches and flu-like symptoms, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Another side effect is “restless leg” syndrome, which can interfere with your ability to relax and get the rest you need. The medical help available in a residential detox facility helps you manage these effects so you can focus on your path to recovery.
Roxycodone (or roxicodone), like its cousin oxycodone, is vital for treating severe or chronic pain. But because “roxy” is formulated for slow release into the system, abusers often crush the tablets to get the rush they crave. The body becomes addicted to this rush and dependent on roxy just like any other opiate, with the same potential withdrawal symptom risks. Inpatient detox gives you your best chance of breaking a roxy habit without relapse.
Codeine is so easy to find, in cough and pain medicines, that it doesn't seem like a powerful opiate. And it's true that you need large doses to match the effects of other opiates. But it has the same addiction potential as the others, and the same risks of side effects in withdrawal. People addicted to codeine benefit as much from residential detox, and experience the same increased chance of success, as users of other opiates.
Hydrocodone (Vicodin) detox
Synthesized from codeine and marketed under brand names such as Vicodin, hydrocodone is formulated for timed release. This means people who abuse it — like those who abuse roxycodone — often crush the tablets for a faster high. Others simply take it more often than prescribed, putting them at risk for addiction and even death due to overdose and the effects of withdrawal. Medically supervised inpatient detox will help you manage the effects.
Oxycodone (OxyContin) detox
Sold under brand names including OxyContin, oxycodone is widely prescribed for relief of chronic pain. Many “oxy” abusers begin taking it for legitimate reasons, but soon find themselves upping the dosage to achieve the effect they crave. This make oxy one of the most widely abused opiates, responsible for wrecking many lives. The risk of quick relapse makes residential detox an important first step for recovery from oxy addiction.
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid pain reliever 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine. It's prescribed by doctors to treat “breakthrough pain” — the kind that can't be managed by other painkillers. As a result, fentanyl is a highly dangerous opiate to abuse, and has resulted in many overdose deaths. Medically supervised detox in a residential facility is strongly advised for recovery from fentanyl abuse.
