Benefits of Morphine Detox

Benefits of Receiving Morphine Detox Prior to Receiving Medication Assisted Treatment

Battling a morphine addiction can result in a number of challenges within an individual’s life. Morphine, which is an opioid-based painkiller that is utilized in the treatment of chronic or severe pain, works by activating the receptors in the brain that are stimulated by the presence of opioids. These receptors, located on the surface of nerve cells, are able to decrease physical pain when morphine is ingested. While morphine can be incredibly effective for those who are battling moderate to severe pain, it can also be dangerous, as many people abuse it for its euphoric and relaxing effects.

The feelings of euphoria, detachment, and relaxation that come from the abuse of morphine are often what keeps individuals stuck in the cycle of morphine abuse. As soon as an individual begins to regularly abuse this medication, he or she can develop a tolerance to morphine. The first step that must be taken in order to defeat a morphine addiction is to go through the detoxification process. Known as “detox” for short, detoxification is when a person’s body is cleared of toxic or dangerous substances such as morphine.

If you feel that you or someone you love is grappling with a morphine addiction, please be aware of the following symptoms which could indicate that an individual is suffering from this form of chemical dependency. When these symptoms have become obvious, it typically means that an individual is struggling with a morphine addiction and requires professional treatment that can include detox:

Behavioral symptoms:

  • Continually abusing morphine regardless of the negative consequences that have occurred as a result of the use
  • Seeking out a number of doctors to obtain many prescriptions for morphine
  • Not participating in previously enjoyed activities
  • Being deceitful about pain or injury in order to be prescribed morphine

Physical symptoms:

  • Itchiness
  • Constipation
  • Drowsiness/sedation
  • Muscle twitching

Cognitive symptoms:

  • Lack of ability to use sound judgment
  • Hallucinations
  • Attention difficulties
  • Impaired coordination

Psychosocial symptoms:

  • Feelings of nervousness
  • Feelings of euphoria
  • Heightened levels of anxiety
  • Depression

If these or other symptoms are impacting you or someone you care for, it can be incredibly beneficial to speak with a professional in order to decide the type of care that would best fit your or your loved one’s needs. Treatment that starts with detox is typically the most effective method in helping start the recovery process. Medication assisted treatment programs are one of the most effective options for care that an individual can choose in order to go through the detox process safely.

Benefits of Medication Assisted Treatment

Benefits of Detoxing from Morphine with Medication Assisted Treatment

Medication assisted treatment is an effective treatment option that can help individuals achieve recovery from a morphine addiction. Within this type of treatment, specific medications are supplied to help individuals avoid morphine cravings and the withdrawal symptoms that generally occur following the cessation of morphine use.

The medications that are utilized within medication assisted treatment programs include Suboxone, Vivitrol, Subutex, and methadone. Each one of these substances works by triggering the same receptors in the brain that drugs like morphine do, all without causing an individual to become high. By preventing a high from developing, patients are able to obtain the clarity of mind they need to work towards establishing long-term recovery. As these medications work to address the physical aspects of morphine withdrawal, patients are free to focus on the emotional aspects of their addictions that might have been either exacerbated by their morphine addiction or created by it.

At Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, our staff of experts is highly trained and knowledgeable. These talented professionals work to ensure that each patient is recovering with a plan that is personalized to his or her needs. Nurses and doctors work together to provide the medications to patients, while counselors help patients address, recognize, and work through the hidden causes behind the start of their morphine addiction.

At Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we are here to help you or your loved one make a morphine addiction a thing of the past so that recovery can be part of the present and future.
