Learn About Opioid Addiction Treatment

Treatment for opioid addiction at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Opioids are highly effective drugs that minimize pain and maximize pleasure. With contents naturally derived from the poppy plant, opioids have been treasured for thousands of years due to their medicinal properties. Opioids greatly reduce chronic pain, a characteristic that makes them readily prescribed by doctors today. Oftentimes, opioids such as morphine are utilized before operations, while painkillers aid in the post-surgery recovery process. Opioids are also frequently prescribed to relieve pain after short-term injuries. Some popularly prescribed opioids are hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine, and fentanyl. Many people who use opioids report feelings of elation and euphoria, with minimal pain and anxiety.

Opioids are as addictive as they are powerful. Even if your doctor prescribes you an opioid, you may be at risk for developing an addiction to the drug due to its naturally addictive properties. Some people who have prescriptions for opioids take these substances past the point that they need them and self-medicate. Many people misuse opioids in order to achieve feelings of bliss and relaxation. Other people may use opioids such as heroin illicitly in order to experience a high.

Whether medicinally or recreationally, any use of opioids increases a person’s chance of becoming dependent upon the drug. As with other addictions, an addiction to opioids begins with increased use of the drug, which can develop into a tolerance, or needing more of the drug in order to achieve the desired effects. Through continued use, tolerance can lead to dependence, and dependence may lead to addiction, where an individual feels they cannot survive without using opioids.

By seeking residential treatment at Bradford Recovery Center, located in Millerton, Pennsylvania, you can learn to manage the symptoms of opioid addiction. At Bradford Recovery Center, you will partner with qualified professionals to develop an effective treatment plan, gain sustainable coping skills, and experience results-oriented recovery.

Why Consider Treatment at Bradford

Additionally, someone who wrestles with an opioid addiction could develop a co-occurring mental illness.

An individual who struggles with an opioid addiction may display a substandard performance at work and may neglect important responsibilities, such as providing for their family, running errands, and spending time with loved ones. Someone who has an opioid addiction may use their money or other resources to access illicit substances, which can take away from feeding and clothing their children. Likewise, a person who is battling an opioid addiction may neglect their family and other important relationships to the point where they may experience long-term familial strife and strained friendships.
