What opiate addiction does to you?

Opiates can produce euphoric and tranquil effects when you use them in large doses, leading to destructive patterns of abuse over time. Up to 66.6% of people have lost their lives to opioid overdose fatality, and around 46 people die daily from a prescription painkiller overdose.

Opiates are dangerous for two reasons. Firstly, they are very addictive, putting you at a high risk of developing an addiction within a couple of days of use. Secondly, they are powerful to the extent that they can suppress your breathing and lead to death. If you suffer from addiction to opiates, it is pivotal that you sign up for methadone and buprenorphine treatment at the earliest to prevent lethal health consequences.

What are the signs of opiate abuse?

Detecting opioid dependence early can protect your loved ones from facing deadly consequences. Some of the signs of opiate abuse include:

  • Needle marks on arms and legs
  • Constricted pinpoint pupils.
  • You find your loved one finding it hard to stay awake or fall asleep at inappropriate times.
  • They have flushed or itchy skin.
  • You observe your loved one withdrawing from social activities that they enjoyed once.
  • Sudden and dramatic mood swings
  • Impulsive actions and poor decision-making.
  • Engaging in risky activities.
  • Visiting several different doctors to obtain more prescriptions.

If you or your loved one exhibits one or more of these, undergoing immediate medical treatment for opiate addiction is vital. Some people overcome opiate and opioid withdrawal by talking to their doctor and getting a new and adjusted prescription. Individuals who have lost themselves to opiate abuse will require in-depth drug addiction treatment and care at a leading inpatient rehab center.

How long do opiate withdrawal symptoms last?

Opiate withdrawal symptoms can range from mild to severe based on the severity of your addiction. Your current health status, presence of underlying mental or behavioral disorders, family history of drug dependence, and several other factors affect the withdrawal symptoms you experience.

Within 12-24 hours of your last dosage, you will start to experience agitation, anxiety, muscle spasms, insomnia, runny nose, sweating, etc. Your withdrawal symptoms should settle within one week with medical detox and 24/7 clinical care. However, the post-acute withdrawal symptoms can last for anywhere from 6 - 12 months after you quit opiates.
