Risk of Opioid Addiction and Dependency
Opioid abuse includes the addiction and abuse of opioid substances including heroin and multiple prescription pain reliever drugs.
As prescription opioid drugs are now the most commonly abused prescription drug in the country, abuse of opioids has become a serious problem with extreme risks, including high risk of addiction and overdose.
In many cases, prescription opioid abuse can also lead to heroin abuse, because people build up increasing tolerance, which leads them to desire gradually higher amounts.
This not only makes addiction more difficult but also makes it more challenging for people to achieve sobriety.
Commonly Abused Prescriptions
Some of the most commonly abused opioid prescription drugs include:
Risk of Opioid Withdrawal
One of the reasons people need opioid detoxification is because opioids create a physical dependence, in which a person becomes reliant on the substance in order to function. Therefore, in order to allow the body to gradually and safely detox from the substance in a way that ensures a person’s physical and mental safety and well-being, it’s important to give the body the proper time and support to do so.
Some of the symptoms people can experience throughout the opioid detox process include:
- Muscle aches
- Abdominal cramping
At the Lakehouse Recovery Center, we have physicians and mental health professionals that work with each person as she or he goes through opioid detoxification treatment, in order to ensure the best possible comfort and safety, throughout the entirety of the process.
At the same time, we also work with people to help them become prepared for the upcoming therapeutic aspects of their treatment process, including processing the mental and emotional aspects of the current experience. For people that come to the Lakehouse for opioid detox and stay on with us for the entire treatment plan, our team is able to coordinate the person’s unique care from day one, through detox and into the other phases of treatment.
