Opiate Addiction Treatment Center
Similar to heroin, opiates are derived from poppy plants. Poppy plants produce opium and have addictive properties. Opium is commonly used in narcotic prescription medications and should only be taken as instructed by a medical professional. However, opiate abuse has become a frequent issue in the United States and is often obtained illegally.
Within the body, opiates are connected to our natural opioid receptors, manipulating our perception of pain. Thus, causing euphoric sensations that our bodies crave.
The brain and nervous system are affected substantially. The main areas of the brain that are affected include:
Illicit opiate abuse will cause harmful effects to these areas of the brain that will ultimately control an abuser.
Opiate Withdrawal Symptoms
When opiate abusers abruptly stop using, neurological responses are immediate and harsh. Lack of opiates on the opioid receptors causes the nervous system to produce internal endorphins at an abnormal rate. This ultimately causes withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal beings within 48-72 hours of last use and end, depending on the abuse frequency. Opiate abusers experience various withdrawal symptoms that are physical and mental.
Physical Withdrawal Symptoms
Psychological Withdrawal Symptoms
Opiate detox symptoms are managed with the proper dispensation of several drugs to minimize the physical sensations of withdrawal. Some examples of commonly used medicines include clonidine, naltrexone, suboxone, and methadone, which may only be administered in a licensed drug addiction treatment center. These medications are merely examples and do not reflect the specific drug used for any individual’s opiate detoxification.
Proper medications can help alleviate the withdrawal symptoms that occur from opiate abuse. Common medications include methadone, clonidine, naltrexone, and suboxone. These medications above are only examples and only relate to individuals when diagnosed and prescribed by a medical professional after assessing the individual’s case at hand.

Opiate Addiction Treatment
After the detoxification phase, opiate abusers must seek additional help through an inpatient facility. This will help individuals build a sober network and clear mind when returning to their home environment. Addressing physiological and mental health issues will decrease the chances of relapse and give each individual an opportunity to work on their underlying issues.
