Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms
While opioids are usually prescribed for pain relief, these highly addictive drugs often create more problems than they solve. Most people begin using them after receiving a recommendation from their doctor, usually in response to surgery or chronic pain.
When the prescription runs out or the cost becomes too great, some people transition to the use of illegal substances. Research shows that nearly 80 percent of heroin users took prescription opioids before turning to heroin.
If someone stops cold turkey, opioid withdrawal symptoms aren’t just uncomfortable—they can be life-threatening. The body’s response includes nausea, vomiting, photosensitivity, racing heartbeat, hypertension, excessive sweating, rapid breathing, and hyperthermia.
Fortunately, modern medicine has provided a convenient and comfortable alternative. With proper oversight, the opiate detox process can take place within the comfort of your own home.
