OPIOID WITHDRAWAL & TREATMENT

Description:

Opioid addiction happens when people abuse opiate drugs and take higher doses than needed for the long term, with or without a prescription. As users become more tolerant of these drugs, it causes physical dependence. Any delay in the intake of these drugs can lead to severe cravings for more frequent doses to achieve the same effect and remain in that state. Otherwise, they experience opioid withdrawal symptoms. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Treatment Options
Opioids are drugs that are used to relieve pain.
Among this class, you can find prescription
painkillers like hydrocodone (Vicodin), morphine,
oxycodone (Percocet or Oxycontin), and methadone.
Illegally manufactured drugs like heroin and
synthetic drug fentanyl addiction also fall under
this category. Opioid addiction happens when
people abuse opiate drugs and take higher doses
than needed for the long term, with or without a
prescription. As users become more tolerant of
these drugs, it causes physical dependence. Any
delay in the intake of these drugs can lead to
severe craving for more frequent doses to achieve
the same effect and remain in that state.
Otherwise, they experience opioid withdrawal
symptoms. Opioid addiction withdrawal effects
occur when you stop taking the drugs suddenly,
especially when you had been taking large amounts
earlier. Your body will need time to recover from
the abrupt ceasing. But how long you will endure
this phase depends on your drug usage and level
of dependence. Furthermore, drugs like methadone
that are used as painkillers can make you
addicted. However, methadone is also used as a
replacement medication for opioid use disorder
treatments and opioid withdrawal treatment of
other drugs. Opioid Withdrawal Timeline The
withdrawal effects may be categorized as mild,
moderate, and severe. Some symptoms show early
on, within a few hours, while others show up late
- based on whether the drug is short-acting or
long-acting. Other factors include your body
constitution, method of intake, and
duration. Hours 6-30 Early Symptoms ?
Yawning ? Sleep issues
? Muscle aches

? Agitation
? Sweats ? Fever Days 3-7 Late Symptoms ?
Nausea and vomiting ? Stomach cramps ?
Diarrhea ? Chills and goosebumps ?
Cravings ? Depression Usually, the symptoms
peak around 72 hours and last for a week in
total. However, in severe cases, the effects may
last for months. Some Shocking Statistics ?
More than 130 people die every day, due to
opioid-related drug overdoses. ? Among the
67,367 deaths that occurred in 2018, almost 70
are due to an opioid. ? In 2016, around 11.5
million Americans were nonmedical users of
pain-relieving narcotic , and among those,
948,000 people used heroin. ? It is estimated
that 4-6 of abusers of prescription opioids make
their transition to heroin. ? Approximately
2.1 million U.S. citizens abuse opioids, per the
National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Opioid Addiction Treatment Options Rather than
trying unassisted withdrawal, which in severe
cases may be life-threatening, you should opt for
medical assistance for opioid withdrawal
treatment. Medical detox, in combination with
various opioid therapy techniques, and opioid
treatment medication can help you prevent the
possibility of a relapse. Inpatient and
outpatient rehab centers provide a controlled
environment and have great chances of success in
managing and controlling your unpleasant
symptoms. Mild withdrawal symptoms may be treated
with aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen and other
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and
more intense ones may require hospitalization. Rap
id detoxification is not advised in most
situations, and many patients will need long-term
maintenance treatment for opioid addiction to
negate the impact of the withdrawal.
