Prescription Drug Addiction

Prescription drug addiction is a dangerous condition we can help with.

MORPHINE ADDICTION

More than two million Americans are dealing with morphine addiction.  If you fall into that unfortunate statistic, there is help at Resurgence Behavioral Health.

The first step is getting a comprehensive assessment to create a customized approach to your treatment.

One of the toughest parts of beating this addiction is withdrawal.  Withdrawal symptoms can be intense and psychological issues are common.  Medical detox, including medications to manage the symptoms of withdrawal, is typically part of our process, which also includes one-on-one therapy, group therapy, and support groups.

Experts agree the best approach is a physician-assisted detox program, followed by inpatient and outpatient levels of care.

The Detoxification Process

Morphine addicts feel the need to constantly feed the habit to feel normal.  Withdrawal can hit in as little as 6 hours or as long as 12 hours, just depending on the severity of the problem and length of addiction.

Withdrawal symptoms:

  • Depression
  • Acute Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Rapid Heartbeat
  • Abdominal Cramping
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Chills / Sweating
  • Insomnia
  • Disorientation
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Tremors

Going cold turkey, or without medical detox, can do damage to brain cells.  It can also cause inflammation to healthy brain tissue.  It’s best to allow professionals at Resurgence help with the detox program using medication to help make the process more bearable.

Our staff in charge of administering a detox program will monitor the medications and slowly reduce the medication to minimize discomfort.

Ongoing Recovery

Like alcohol or other addictive drugs, sobriety from morphine addiction is an ongoing process that will last a lifetime.  The medical detox program may take just a few days to a week, and sometimes longer in an inpatient program, but avoiding relapse and making a commitment for a healthier lifestyle will be a lifelong process.  Ongoing support group and counseling can provide a healthy forum to prevent relapse.  Lifestyle changes may also be necessary, including changing social circles and social triggers.
