Prescription Opiate Detox Programs in FL
Prescription opiates are at the root of the opioid epidemic in America and can often lead to heroin addiction. Detoxification programs for prescription opiates can be just as severe and challenging as detoxing from any drug, and thus requires a medical detox center environment in order to be conducted safely. Medically assisted detox treatment for opiate, opioid, and heroin detoxification often include drug replacement therapy to help recovering patients physically readjust and wean from their addiction.
FHE Health understands how severe prescription painkiller addictions can get for affected individuals and their loved ones. The severity of the addiction withdrawal symptoms associated with detoxification depends on a number of factors, including how much of the drug was taken at a time, how regularly it was taken, and for how long the drug was abused. Common withdrawal symptoms for people going through opiate detox may include:
- Intense cravings
- Gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea and nausea
- Cold, clammy skin
- Body aches
- Restless legs
When a person regularly ingests any substance, especially highly addictive substances, their body chemistry and mind become dependent on it to function. When the drug is suddenly removed, the body goes into a state of shock and chaos as it tries to re-learn how to function without it. These unpleasant symptoms are the result of the body trying to suddenly and unexpectedly reacclimate to its internal chemical climate without the abused substance and can be extremely dangerous if not handled by experienced professionals through a medically supervised program at a drug detox center.
