The challenge in this climate of high opioid-related addiction numbers is to support people who need pain relief while mitigating risk of dependence.

Opioid Use Disorder

Opioid use disorder has potential symptoms that may have a profound effect on people’s lives. The challenge is finding ways to keep the drug from taking over a person’s life through addiction. With morphine as an active ingredient, the potential is higher than other drugs for abuse. Some opioid use disorder symptoms range from:

  • Taking more than prescribed or more often
  • Not able to limit what is being taken (desire for more)
  • Causing harm to self or others without regard while on the medication (or seeking it)
  • Looking for, consuming, or spending time in recovery from the use of the drug
  • Losing relationships, jobs, or other things over the use of the drug

The difficulty with quitting an opioid comes from withdrawal symptoms. A person will experience a range of detox symptoms, but they are best experienced in the safety of rehab under a trained professional group who can address serious concerns safely during withdrawal.

Detox from Substances

Anytime a person detoxes from a substance, they are releasing its grip from the body and mind. When the body and mind are used to having it in the system, they will not let go easily. You may halt or stop your medication consumption and give the substance time to leave the body but not feel safe doing it unless you are in a treatment facility. Mild to severe symptoms may include:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Muscle fatigue or pain
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Risk of overdose if withdrawing alone

When opioid detox is done safely in the presence of trained professionals, they can provide methods and treatment options for mitigating negative symptoms. Reduced tolerance can put a person at increased risk of overdose, so it is better to detox with the help of people who understand withdrawal and how to support the person’s needs safely.

Going to Rehab

Treatment for Avinza addiction (or any opioid medication) is usually best done at an inpatient or outpatient program. Moderate to severe symptoms of withdrawal make it important to have support during this crucial transition to recovery. With expert care, you are more likely to sustain a healthy, long-term recovery program if you have the right help up front.
