The word opiate refers to any substance that comes from the opium poppy plant. Unlike opioids, which can be both natural or synthetic, opiates are natural substances. However, just like opioids, opiates bind to the opioid receptors of the brain, quickly causing addiction. If you need opiate or opioid addiction treatment, Bayview Recovery can help. Contact our opiate addiction treatment center today at 855.478.3650 to learn about the treatment options available.
Beat Opiate Dependency at an Opiate Addiction Treatment Center
Opiates, like heroin, produce intense highs, which include powerful feelings of euphoria as well as drowsiness, sedation, and warmth. However, these pleasurable highs do not last very long. In addition, users will always need higher dosages of the drug to have the same level of high as they did before as they continue to use the drug. This tolerance quickly leads to dependency, then opiate abuse and addiction, which can have devastating health consequences. These problems begin early and, if you continue using, can easily lead to overdose as well as an accidental death. Reach out to an opiate addiction rehab center.
Untreated, opiate addictions have many dangers. In addition to the risk of overdose, users who use street versions of the drug face unknown risks since they never know what concentration of the drug they are taking or if other substances have also been mixed in; this can lead to further damage to their health. These factors make breaking dependency extremely difficult and make an opiate addiction rehab center essential to recovery.
Recent studies establish the need for a medically supervised detox as well as a comprehensive rehab program if you are currently on opiates. Between the years 2001 and 2014, for example, deaths from overdose quadrupled, and the drug continues to kill 10,000 or more users annually. These trends also show no signs of decreasing. However, Bayview Recovery can help if you are addicted to opiates. We offer among the most comprehensive as well as accessible recovery programs you can find. Therefore, we can quickly get started on your individualized treatment.
