Understanding Morphine Abuse

Understanding Morphine Abuse Recovery

Morphine is a powerful prescription medication that is frequently prescribed to individuals who are suffering from severe physical pain. This drug comes in time-release tablets or a liquid solution and, when taken, changes the way the brain processes pain. As a result, those who use it responsibly can continue to live a normal every day life, however those who abuse it will see much different consequences, as morphine is habit-forming. If an addiction to morphine develops, the best and most effective means of overcoming it is by seeking professional intervention. Those who are addicted to morphine and decide to reach out for help can receive a number of different treatment options. Out of the many options to choose from, one of the safest and most effective is medication-assisted treatment, especially when conducted in conjunction with therapy. This type of approach can help an individual break free from a morphine addiction once and for all.

Medication-assisted treatment is a type of treatment that involves specific medications that keep withdrawal symptoms and cravings under control and allows individuals to steer clear from the dangerous effects of opioid use. This type of treatment works best when received alongside additional therapeutic care, such as individual and group therapy. Through this combination of care, individuals recovering from morphine addiction can see that there is more to life than the use of this drug.

At Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we can help you grab a hold of your life and turn it around for the better. The medication-assisted treatment programs that we offer are safe and beneficial in helping individuals get sober. In addition, the individual and group therapies that we offer compliment the work that is being done through the medication-assisted treatment. If you are looking for a place where you can receive effective, comprehensive care, then reach out to Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers right now.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Morphine Abuse at Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers are a network of outpatient providers that offer medication-assisted treatment options that are medically supervised. Those men and women aged 18 and older that wish to overcome their morphine addiction can participate in our program if they have been struggling with addiction for over a year. Our skilled and compassionate staff is made up of doctors, nurses, and counselors that will work with each individual to not just determine the type of medication and dosage that will be administered, but also help develop a plan for their therapeutic intervention as well.

The medications and therapeutic interventions that we offer include the following:

Methadone: Methadone works to prevent cravings and control withdrawal symptoms that typically occur once morphine use is stopped. Methadone will not cause the same high as would other opiates, because it is an opioid agonist. Methadone is given on a daily basis, and the dosage is determined on a case-by-case basis. The goal is for methadone to be decreased over time in order to wean the individual off in a way that will promote sobriety.

Suboxone: Suboxone is comprised of buprenorphine and naloxone, which not only helps reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, but also helps prevent against overdose. When used with other opioids, the effects of suboxone can backfire, and withdrawal symptoms can develop. The daily dose of Suboxone will be determined based on an individual’s unique treatment needs.

Subutex: Subutex contains only buprenorphine, unlike Suboxone, which contains both buprenorphine and naloxone. This drug works to block the damaging effects of morphine that can occur in a user’s brain. Subutex, which is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, decreases withdrawal symptoms and cravings in someone who is attempting to end a morphine addiction. As a result, individuals can focus on their recovery without simultaneously dealing with painful withdrawal symptoms. Subutex is taken on a daily basis in a dosage recommended by a doctor.

Vivitrol: Vivitrol is a non-narcotic and non-addictive medication that is injected once monthly rather than taken orally on a daily basis. Vivitrol, like Subutex and Suboxone, lessens cravings and withdrawal symptoms for a recovering morphine user. Naltrexone is the active ingredient.

Individual and group therapy: Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers work to enhance the overall experience and effectiveness of our programs by incorporating individual and group therapy into our patients’ program. Individual sessions take place between a counselor and the individual, and can serve as a time to identify and address underlying causes of addiction. Group therapy, also conducted by counselors, allow individuals to work together to provide and obtain support, as well as receive encouragement that can help him or her stay on the proper path to recovery.
