Find out more about residential inpatient drug treatment options and how inpatient rehabs can help you find healing.


Opiate addiction may start with an injury which requires painkillers and results into a serious Suboxone and/or heroin problem. Since painkillers have become difficult to get due to anti-doctor shopping laws, it has made heroin easier to acquire. A lot of people who don’t have any previous injuries use opiates, but the consequences are similar for whosoever abuses them.

Opiates are a category drugs which are recommended for curing pain. Opiates are gotten from opium, which emanates from the Poppy plant. Opioids and narcotics is another name for opiates. Opiates comprise of drugs like Dilaudid (hydromorphone), Vicodin, Oxycontin, Codeine, Percoset (oxycodone), Duragesic (fentanyl), MS Contin Kadian (morphine) and Hycodan (hydrocodone).

Why Do People Abuse Opiates?

Addicts have euphoria or a feeling of wellbeing which can be very addictive. They don’t only get rid of the physical pain but also emotional pain – for a short time frame. It is quite easy to tolerate opiates, this implies that an addict ought to take large amounts to have the same level of euphoria. Addiction is caused by tolerance. The euphoric effect is tolerated faster than the dangerous effects. This often leads to unexpected overdose since addicts try to get very high and so take more than enough.


Treat Opioid Withdrawal & Find Lasting Recovery

Addiction to opiates may consist of intense withdrawal symptoms which require time in detoxifying. A few opiate addicts may need Suboxone as a short-term medication. The risk of using Suboxone is that it can be conveniently used as a “filler” in case an addict is not able to lay his/her hands on heroin and it is very addictive as well. In other words, it is like giving up one addiction for the other. Drugs such as Suboxone are very efficient when used following the doctor’s orders in detox and stopped (again, under the doctor’s orders) when staying in a recovery community which is established.
