How can I get treatment for my opiate addiction?
America struggles with opiate addiction possibly more than ever before. One of the biggest culprits behind America’s drug addiction is heroin. Heroin is a powerful drug that hooks users hard. But what some people don’t know is that prescription painkillers are extremely dangerous, too.
Prescription drugs result in more overdoses every day than any other drug. The problem with prescription opiates like OxyContin and Percocet is that they seem so innocent and easy to take. What harm could one tiny little pill do? If you ask the thousands of opiate addicts in the country, the answer will probably be, “a lot.”
There are many reasons why people get hooked on opiates. Some people start with an addiction to pain pills, and then switch to heroin because it’s cheaper and easier to get. Other people may start with heroin and don’t know when to stop.
The problem with opiates is they come in so many different shapes and sizes, and there are many ways to ingest them. People think that what they are doing isn’t going to hurt them, and that they won’t get addicted. But the sad truth is that many of those people do get addicted, and need to search out professional drug addiction rehab.
What is the best treatment center for an opiate addiction?
While science is always advancing, rehab is currently the most widely accepted treatment for opiate addiction. When people use opiates for a long time, their brain actually starts to change. The brain becomes dependent on the opiates to feel normal and function properly. This makes it difficult to treat opiate addiction by just going cold turkey.
Opiate addicts need medical detox under medical supervision to make sure they are healthy and stable. After that, many people have had success with a 12-Step Program.
