Opiate Addiction and Treatment

The top-rated Opiate addiction recovery center at Chapters Capistrano offers individualized programs that are catered to each client. Every person is affected by the addiction and drug differently, so no program should be exactly the same. We ensure your successful return to a life free of drug dependency!

General Information

Opiates create an intense, euphoric high. The drugs are derived from opium and processed from the latex sap of the opium poppy. Morphine, codeine, papaverine, and one world are the biologically-active opiates found in opium. These are further processed to make hydromorphone, oxycodone, and hydrocodone. Despite being other alkaloids present in opium, these are the ones that most influence an abuser’s central nervous system. Recreationally, opioids are ingested by injection or insufflation. Medically, opioids are orally ingested.

Effects of Opiate Use

Opioid abuse and dependence can effect an addict physically, emotionally, socially and mentally. Psychological symptoms include paranoia, strokes, depression, insomnia and seizures. Socially, a person’s relationships professionally and with family and friends may greatly suffer.

Opiate Detoxification Withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful

Opiate withdrawal can be very uncomfortable. As a result, Chapters recognizes that many addicts put off rehabilitation. It is our commitment to our clients to use the safest, most traditional form of detoxification, a drug-specific detox. This will ease withdrawal symptoms and the risk of seizure. Clients are administered medically-supervised prescription medication in lessening amounts until the body has return to a stabilized state.

Chapters Capistrano knows that our clients are capable of fully recovering and returning to a drug-free life! Our drug and alcohol rehab center will continue to improve our individualized Opiate addiction recovery programs to better serve our clients.
