Addiction to Opiates

by De'Meko, June 12, 2013

Addiction and Treatment

A luxury premier rehabilitation center for addiction, Chapters Capistrano’s addiction experts are committed to supporting clients on their personal journeys toward sober living. No treatment plan is identical because no addict experiences addiction in the same way. We guarantee our rehab program will guide you back to a life free of drug dependency!

General Information

The intense, euphoric high triggered from using opiates is contrived from the processing of the opium plant and the latex sap of the opium poppy. Biologically-active opiates in opium are morphine, codeine, papaverine, and one world, all of which are processed further to create oxycodone, hydromorphone, and hydrocodone. These are the main players that most significantly alter an abuser’s central nervous system. Opioids are ingested by injection or insufflation when taken recreationally. Opioids are orally ingested when taken for medical purposes.

Effects of Use

Abusing opiates can have serious physical side effects. These include paranoia, strokes, depression, insomnia and seizures. But effects go far beyond just the physical realm. A person’s mental, emotional and social health will be altered, too. Relationships professionally and with family and friends may greatly suffer.

Detoxification Withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful

We at Chapters Capistrano know how uncomfortable withdrawal can be. It doesn’t have to be though, and our drug and alcohol rehab center is here to make rehabilitation as painless as possible. Using a drug-specific detox, a client’s withdrawal symptoms and risk of seizure will lessen. Medically-supervised medication will be given to addicts in tapering doses until the body regains its natural, stabilized state.

Chapters Capistrano is devoted to guiding our clients toward a successful, drug-free recovery! Our addiction recovery plan offers you the most personalized, focused approach to your rehabilitation. Call our 24-hour helpline for more information at 949-371-4198 today.
