Our Opioid Addiction Treatment
Opioids are famous as drugs to reduce chronic pain and alleviate opioid receptors. However, people use it as an abused substance because it generates a feeling of pleasure (euphoria). That’s why they are getting addicted to opioids.
From chronic symptoms to side effects, opioid abuse has a complete setup to destroy your health. Hence, we recommend a professional addiction treatment instead of self-detox. Believe Detox Center offers expert opioid addiction treatment in California to get you back in your life. Before that, you must know some info about opioid addiction.
So, let’s get started!
What is Opioid Addiction?
Opioid addiction is the dependence and urges to abuse opioids regularly. US Government legalized opioids as an aid to chronic pains and prescribed a limited dosage to prevent addiction. Yet, they stimulate opioid receptors to generate euphoria and the reward center of your brain. You might abuse it for pleasurable feelings but it’s highly addictive and can destroy your health.
Here’s How People Misuse Opioids
- Consuming a larger dose of opioids than prescribed by the doctors
- Buying opioids specifically to abuse and feel the pleasurable feeling
- Swallowing, injecting, and snorting opioids
Side Effects and Withdrawal Symptoms of Opioids
Short-Term Side Effects
- Increased euphoria
- Slowed breathing
Signs of Acute Opioid Abuse
- Permanent brain dysfunction
- Long-term comas
- Sleeping troubles
- Severe cravings
- Muscle pain
- Cold flashes
These side effects and withdrawal symptoms are the reason why we do not recommend self-detox. If you try self-detox, it will lead to various chronic symptoms, including comas and death. At Believe Detox Center, we offer painless and comfortable opioid addiction treatment. Let’s have a look at how to do it.
