When consumed, morphine changes the way the brain responds to pain so that individuals can continue living their daily lives without being held back by their discomfort. Those who take morphine are often warned that morphine can cause side effects and can be habit-forming. When taken as directed, morphine can beneficial to those who require it. However, should an individual find himself or herself addicted to this type of medication, it will likely take professional help and effective treatment to overcome an addiction of this kind. Those who are grappling with morphine addiction and who wish to obtain professional help can choose from a number of treatment options. Among all of the treatment options available, one of the most effective is medication assisted treatment.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Morphine Abuse Recovery at North Carolina Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers is a network of outpatient treatment providers that supply medically supervised medication assisted treatment for individuals who desire to end their addictions to opioids like morphine. Individuals who are aged 18 and above and who have been battling with morphine abuse for at least one year are invited to participate in our services. Our professional and devoted staff is made up of nurses, counselors, and doctors who work alongside of patients to support them on their recovery journeys.

The medications and therapeutic interventions offered to our patient include:

Methadone: Methadone is capable of stopping nagging cravings and painful withdrawal symptoms that are known to accompany the cessation of morphine abuse. Individuals who are taking methadone will not become high like they would if they were to abuse an opioid like morphine, as methadone is classified as an opioid agonist. Methadone is taken daily, and the dosage that is recommended will be determined based on the patient’s needs.

Suboxone: Suboxone is the brand name for the combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. This medication is effective in stopping cravings and withdrawal symptoms. However, unlike other medications used in these types of programs, Suboxone can trigger the onset of withdrawal symptoms if it is abused on its own or with other opioids such as morphine. The dosage provided to a patient will be determined based on his or her needs.

Subutex: Subutex contains buprenorphine, and, unlike Suboxone, does not contain naloxone. Working by lessening the intensity of cravings and withdrawal symptoms, Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, which means that the effects of consuming an opioid are completely blocked. Simultaneously, the withdrawal symptoms that one is likely to experience are lessened, which allows a patient the freedom to focus on his or her recovery. Subutex is taken once daily, and one of our trained doctors will provide the recommended dosage.

Vivitrol: Vivitrol is a non-narcotic and non-addictive medication that is injected once monthly to help prevent the onset of withdrawal symptoms and cravings. The main ingredient in Vivitrol is naltrexone.

Individual and group therapy: To provide the most effective medication assisted treatment possible, Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers include individual and group therapy sessions into its programming. Individual therapy sessions occur in a one-on-one setting with a counselor and can help patients work through their emotions surrounding addiction and recovery. Group therapy sessions are led by counselors and can feature variety of topics covered. Other patients join in so that everyone involved can obtain support and encouragement from those who have shared similar addiction-related struggles.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider North Carolina Comprehensive Treatment Centers for Morphine Abuse

If an addiction to morphine is allowed to continue, it is likely that a variety of negative consequences will occur. Individuals who abuse morphine could easily start to isolate themselves from others in order to keep using. Social isolation can eventually cause conflict with loved ones, and lead to the demise of meaningful relationships. Employment struggles and financial problems are also a possibility, especially if an individual puts his or her morphine addiction above everything else. Letting a morphine addiction continue can also put an individual’s physical and psychological wellbeing at risk. For example, mental illnesses that already exist can become exasperated through morphine abuse. From a physical standpoint, issues such as vital organ damage and fatal overdose are possible. However, there is help available, which means that individuals can get help to put an end to these negative consequences or prevent them from occurring in the future.
