Every day, more and more people fall victim to opioid abuse. Both legally prescribed and illegal forms of opioids can cause dependency. If you are struggling with addiction to opioids, Awakenings Recovery Center offers a treatment program to help you begin to rebuild your life.
We offer residential treatment, which allows clients to live in our recovery center during treatment. Here, they can focus on their recovery away from the stresses of everyday life. We are committed to meeting clients where they are–whether you have been through treatment before and have relapsed or are seeking out help for the first time, our team will support you on your journey.
Types of Opioids
Opioids are a category of drugs that includes illegal and prescription substances that can be either natural or synthetic. For example, heroin is an illegal opioid. An example of a synthetic opioid is fentanyl. Most prescription pain relievers fall under the category of opioids as well, including:
While these medications can be effective in relieving pain, they are also highly addictive. Even if you have been prescribed an opioid pain reliever by your doctor after a medical procedure, you can still develop a dependency on it.
Do You Need Treatment for Opioid Addiction?
Since many opioids are prescribed legally, it can be difficult to know whether or not you’ve developed an addiction. Opioids can cause you to feel a sense of euphoria. This is due to the way that they produce dopamine and how it acts on the brain. Over time, the receptors in your brain become numb to the effects of dopamine and at the same time cause you to want more of it. This makes it difficult to stop using opioids and can cause some individuals to turn to heroin or other illegal opioids once their prescription runs out.
Some of the signs that you are struggling with opiate addiction include:
- Going to more than one doctor to get a prescription
- Using opioids in a way other than as prescribed
- Problems with family members, friends, and co-workers
- Legal or financial problems
- Issues fulfilling responsibilities at work or at home
- Sudden mood swings
If you are using opioids and any of the above apply to you, reach out to our treatment center today to begin your journey to recovery.
