Detox From Opioids at The Nestled Recovery Center

Too many people go home with a prescription and end up with an addiction. Opioids are extremely dangerous drugs, but patients may not think twice about taking them when a doctor prescribes them. Prescription use can quickly turn into dependence and abuse. In 2018, approximately 10.3 million people misused opioids.

If you’ve become addicted to opioids, it is not your fault. Nevertheless, it is your responsibility to seek treatment, and detox is often the first step. At The Nestled Recovery Center, we can help you get clean during a 10 to 20-day detox and stay sober with rehab.

All you need to do is call us at (702) 299-6406 today.

What Are Opioids?

Opiates or opioids are narcotic drugs used to treat pain. Common opioids include:

  • Oxycodone (OxyContin or Percocet)
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
  • Codeine
  • Morphine
  • Methadone
  • Hydromorphone (Dilaudid or Exalgo ER)
  • Meperidine (Demerol)
  • Fentanyl (Duragesic, Abstral, Subsys, or Ionsys)

Although it is not a prescription drug, heroin is also an opioid. Sometimes, patients lose access to their prescriptions and turn to heroin or other illegal drugs to feed their cravings. All kinds of opioids can cause physical dependence, which means an individual relies on a drug to prevent unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

Not everyone with a physical opiate dependence has an addiction, but withdrawal can be one of the biggest obstacles for recovery for those battling substance use disorder.

Opiate Withdrawal Symptoms

Everyone experiences opiate withdrawal differently, but symptoms usually begin within 24 hours of your last dose. Some people start suffering symptoms as early as a few hours after they last take the drug.

Many people compare withdrawal symptoms to having the flu. Opiate withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Muscle aches
  • Excessive sweating
  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness
  • Yawning
  • Runny nose
  • Watery eyes
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Muscle spasms or twitching
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • And more

If you are suffering from the ailments above, it can be hard to resist the temptation of opiates.

Instead of returning to drug use, however, you can undergo a safe and comfortable detox at The Nestled Recovery Center.

Managing Detox and Withdrawal

While you cannot avoid opioid withdrawal symptoms entirely, having the right treatment can make them more bearable. When you choose detox, your clinicians may help you taper the drugs out of your system. This means you may take small, supervised doses of methadone or buprenorphine to diminish the severity of your symptoms. When it comes to opiate detoxification, the opioid antagonist, naltrexone, can also be helpful in reducing your urge to use. As you undergo medical detox, you will also receive therapy and support to help you cope with pain and cravings.

After 10 to 20 days, your body will be free of opioids and you can move forward with the next phase of treatment, typically an inpatient rehab.
