Those attending our opioid addiction treatment center in Lancaster, CA are provided with the guidance they need to break free from their addictions – allowing them to live fuller, more productive lives.
When It’s Time to Treat Opioid Use
Opioids are generally prescribed by medical professionals to help patients alleviate pain, but can become problematic when used in excess or for periods longer than recommended by doctors. Such drugs include Oxycodone, Codeine, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Methadone, Fentanyl, Meperidine, and Hydromorphone.
According to American Society of Addiction Medicine, opioid use has been a driving force in causing accidental drug overdoses in the United States, accounting for 18,893 prescription pain reliever-related deaths in 2014. The signs of addiction may include but are not limited to the following:
- Using multiple doctors/pharmacies to receive the same prescriptions
- Displaying mood swings & other behaviors noted by euphoria and drowsiness
- Isolating oneself from social situations
- Experiencing a number of withdrawal symptoms including nausea, stomach pain, chills, agitation, high blood pressure, & cold sweats
