Morphine Detox

A morphine addiction can lead to a path filled with roadblock after roadblock and for good reason. When morphine enters into the brain, it binds its receptors (which are located on the nerve cells) and once this has occurred, the morphine works through the nerves to nearly eliminate pain by immediately sending signals through the body to eliminate pain.

Benefits of Receiving Morphine Detox Prior to Receiving Medication-Assisted Treatment

Even though morphine has been beneficial in helping alleviate pain in individuals, it is also a highly addictive substance because of these very reasons.

Typically, the main draw to morphine is that it makes users feel euphoric, detached, and overall relaxed. As a result, the cycle of abuse continues as these feelings are continually chased and dependency ensues. At this point, overcoming a morphine addiction can be incredibly challenging. Before doing anything else, the first step towards recovery from morphine addiction is detoxification. Detoxification, or “detox”, is a process that helps rid the body of dangerous substances, like morphine.

If you or someone you love is looking to overcome morphine addiction and is requiring detox, look over the following symptoms. As the symptoms listed below make themselves present, it is usually because an addiction has developed and professional treatment is required.

Behavioral symptoms:

  • Seeing numerous doctors in an effort to obtain numerous prescriptions
  • Lying about injuries to obtain prescriptions for pain medications
  • Lacking interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Continuing to use morphine despite the consequences of use

Physical symptoms:

  • Drowsiness/sedation
  • Constipation
  • Itchiness
  • Muscle spasms

Cognitive symptoms:

  • Attention problems
  • Impaired coordination
  • Hallucinations
  • Inability to use proper judgment

Psychosocial symptoms:

  • Euphoria
  • Nervousness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

If any of these symptoms are impacting your life or the lives of others, it is critical that you reach out for professional help immediately to determine the course of care that would be best for you. When it comes to morphine addiction, detox is often the most common (and most effective) form of care. Medication-assisted treatment programs are also highly recommended to safely withdraw from morphine.

Benefits of Medication-Assisted Treatment

Benefits of Detoxing from Morphine with Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment programs are excellent resources for individuals looking to start on their path of recovery from a morphine addiction. These programs offer medications used specifically to help the body safely detox from morphine and/or other opioid drugs. They also work by lessening cravings and withdrawal symptoms during the detox process.

Medication-assisted treatment programs frequently utilize methadone, Suboxone, Subutex, and Vivitrol. Each one of these substances trigger the same parts of the brain that an opioid like morphine does, however does not initiate the feeling of being high. By eliminating the high from the process, individuals are able to fully focus on all aspects of their recovery without being drowsy and disoriented. They are able to be free of painful withdrawal symptoms so they can focus on the emotional causes of their addiction and work towards addressing those issues in a healthy manner.

At Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we have hired teams of professionals who are well trained in their areas of expertise, including medication-assisted treatment, detox, and long-term maintenance. These talented and understanding professionals put forth their best efforts to help provide the best possible treatment for each and every patient. Each patient is looked at as an individual with personalized needs throughout their treatment. Doctors and nurses work together to help each patient receive his or her medications and they will monitor each patient closely during their recovery. Counselors provide constant emotional care for each patient, helping them identify, address, and work through any and all underlying causes of their addiction.

At Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we strive to help you or your loved one get the help that is both needed and deserved to overcome a morphine addiction. Call us today for more information.
