Opiates are a class of substances that work by depressing the body’s central nervous system, inducing feelings of extreme relaxation and euphoria. An addiction to these drugs can be one such troubling problem for an individual who experiences life-consuming consequences once their dependency has developed. The effects of this type of substance can create a pleasurable and compulsive addiction for many users. Users who abuse opiates often become entrapped in the desire, need to continuously take them without any regard as time goes on or how harmful it may be long-term. 

There are several different types that people might become addicted to including prescription medications like Vicodin, Percodan, or illegal derivative heroin. Regardless of the type of opiate a person develops an addiction to, their repercussions can be far-reaching and long-lasting. This is why it’s imperative that treatment is sought as soon as possible in order for them not only to get back on track with life but also to prevent any negative consequences from happening down the road.

At ALTR, we understand that the process of getting and staying sober can be very intimidating. We provide specialized treatment for opiate addiction with an emphasis on comfortability during your recovery journey, so you feel ready to take back control of your life after successful completion.

Helping a loved one get treatment for opiate addiction

You might be experiencing a number of different emotions upon finding out that your loved one is struggling with abusing opiates. It can be difficult for non-users to understand why someone would allow themselves to engage in behaviors leading them down an increasingly negative path, but it doesn’t mean those feelings aren’t entirely warranted or appropriate. Many people struggle with addiction, whether it be to drugs or alcohol. If you have a family member who is addicted and in need of help (or just wants reassurance), consider these suggestions:

  • Know the signs and symptoms of this type of drug. Learning about what those experiencing may be going through will better equip us in supporting them.
  • Enlist the help and support of others in his or her life.
  • Don’t lecture your loved one. Instead, remain calm and encourage them with positive comments or actions to get treatment for their addiction in the future so that you can both move forward together without conflict.
  • Find a treatment that is effective for your loved one’s needs.
  • Offer to go with your loved one on any appointments that he or she might have in order for them not only to feel more at ease but it can also give you the opportunity to see what goes into a procedure before committing.
  • It is important for family and friends to be involved in a person’s treatment. As long as they are engaged, their recovery will likely result in success.

Why Consider Treatment?

Opiates are dangerous drugs. It can lead to an individual experiencing detrimental consequences such as deteriorating physical health and emotional wellbeing, while also slowly destroying their sense of well-being psychologically over time, even if they stop using immediately after use resumes.

 Opioid abuse can lead to some serious physical effects, including bone pain and negative central nervous system arousal. Prolonged use of these drugs may cause irreversible cognitive impairment that affects one’s ability to learn new information as well as keep memories from before they began using opioids for long periods or even at all. Drug addiction can cause a number of problems in the life of an individual, including occupational failure and financial distress. 

Fortunately, there are many treatment options available that greatly reduce or even eliminate these detrimental effects for some people who have become addicts themselves due to their own personal struggles with addiction not being able to find help on time when they needed it most.
