Opiate Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano offers a top-rated addiction recovery program to those seeking treatment from Opiate addiction. Our addiction experts develop client-specific treatment plans, because we recognize no addict is affected by Opiate addiction the exact same.  We strive to guarantee a full recovery to a drug-free life!

General Information

Derived from opium and processed from the latex sap of the opium poppy, opiates trigger a euphoric high. The alkaloids—Morphine, codeine, papaverine, and one world, the biologically-active opiates found in opium—are manipulated in the production of hydromorphone, oxycodone, and hydrocodone. Although there are other alkaloids in opium, these most greatly affect an abuser’s central nervous system. For recreational use, opioids are ingested by insufflation or injection. For medicinal use, opioids are usually ingested orally.

Effects of Opiate Use

Psychological symptoms as in paranoia, insomnia, depression, strokes, and seizures are some of the grave health effects of opioid abuse. An addict’s habit does not, however, only affect him/herself, but also relationships professionally and with family and friends. Ending opioid addiction will cause intense withdrawal symptoms.

Opiate Detoxification Withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful

Many people avoid rehabilitation because they fear withdrawal from their drug of choice. We at Chapters are committed to lessening withdrawal symptoms because we want those in need of treatment to get the help they need. The drug-specific detox used is the safest detoxification program. Clients take  prescription medication under medical supervision to reduce the risk of seizure and ease withdrawal symptoms. These medications are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.

The drug and alcohol rehab center at Chapters Capistrano knows you can attain freedom from drug dependency and we are here to show you how! To talk to one of our expert staff members about our individualized programs, call our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 today.
