Opiate Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano is an addiction treatment industry leader in handling opiate addiction. The addiction experts at Chapters have created a highly personalized treatment program for individuals addicted to opiates. Each case of opiate dependence is unique and requires a specialized approach to ensure success and allow an addict to achieve freedom from drug dependency.

Opiate Rehab Information

Opiates are a classification which describes a group of drugs derived from opium, and are processed from the latex sap of the opium poppy. Opiates are taken by abusers to achieve a euphoric high. The main biologically-active opiates found in opium are morphine, codeine, papaverine, and one world. These alkaloids are utilized in the production of hydromorphone, oxycodone, and hydrocodone. There are other alkaloids present in opium; however, they have little effect on the central nervous system. Opioids taken for recreational purposes are frequently ingested via insufflation or injection, while opiate usage for medicinal purposes is typically oral.

Effects of Opiate Use

Abuse of opiates can lead to dependence and have a significant impact on the addict’s health, including numerous psychological symptoms such as paranoia, insomnia, depression, strokes, and seizures. Opiate abuse can impact all aspects of the addict’s life, including physical and mental health, relationships with family and friends, and business interactions. Ending opioid dependence will cause the addict to endure strong withdrawal symptoms.

Opiate Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

At Chapters, we understand that most people are anxious about the idea of going through opiate withdrawal and this keeps them using the drug.   We recognize that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.

Through the opiate rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using opiates, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.
